Speed, contrary to what may seem, goes against your productivity.
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
We live in a society that rewards speed, even if it means doing things wrong or not enjoying doing them. Let me tell you that speed is very overrated.
Why Can't Productivity Be Fun?
Published on February 24, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
I wonder if we can make personal productivity a more fun activity. What do you think?
“I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.” ~ Thomas A. Edison
I always thought that personal productivity is primarily a matter of habits, and that (lack of) habits are the main reason why most people cannot maintain an acceptable level of personal organization.
You Need a Map to Be Productive

You will get lost from time to time. Not a big deal if you have a map.
Don’t worry if you occasionally feel a little lost in your personal organization. That is normal. Sometimes you may lose some control over what you are doing, and sometimes you can lose some perspective on what you have to do.
How to Stop Living an Email-driven Life
Published on February 10, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
Want to start feeling really productive? Want to reduce your stress? You just need to do these two things.

On Productivity, Words Matter

When you enter a task in your personal management system, you are writing instructions for the future "you".
Have you ever read a to-do and realized that you do not know exactly what you meant when you wrote it? Have you ever read a to-do that you remember seemed very exciting when it was captured, and now it does not seem that interesting?
Building your moments of 'Doing'
Published on January 30, 2014 by David Torné Llorens
All your planning and organizing is worthless unless you find the time needed to get things done right.
Productivity is nothing without “Doing”. Those lists, plans, projects, goals, and visions, are nothing if you do not spend quality time to meet your commitments. Everybody gets things done, no doubt, but the quality of our work makes a difference. It is important to care and provide a good finish. We tend to do too many things at once. Perhaps we do not fall into multitasking, but it seems that we are giving up the idea of focusing on just one thing.
