On Productivity, Words Matter
Published on February 03, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
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.
12 Tips to Keep Your To-do List Short, as Well as Useful
Published on January 27, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
The shorter your next actions list is, the easier it will be for you to get focused on what you really need to do.
The main function of a to-do list is to get you organized and easy, knowing that you do not forget anything. But if you let it grow without care, it can produce an entirely different effect. A long list can ruin your sense of control and become a source of stress and frustration.

The Value of a Mind Adrift
Published on January 20, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
Knowing how to pay attention where we need to do it at every moment is one of the most valuable skills today.
“A mind adrift lets our creative juices flow.” ~ Daniel Goleman
I have to say that I am finding extremely interesting the reading of Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence, by Daniel Goleman. In my opinion, knowing how to pay attention where we need to do it at every moment is, probably, one of the most valuable skills today, and also, one of the most difficult to achieve. This book addresses the issue from a perspective based entirely in science, which gives the material exhibited a special relevance, well above most of the common posts and guru-tips you can find on the internet.
How to Define Your Vision Statement
Published on January 06, 2014 by Francisco Sáez
Why you should have a clear vision of yourself in the future, and how to define it.
“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” ~ Helen Keller
One of the main bad habits in the field of personal productivity is the assignation of subjective priorities to our daily tasks and projects; a problem that stretches back to the traditional management systems.
My New Year's Resolution
Published on December 30, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Attention is a fundamental skill for almost everything, from effectively performing tasks to maintaining good relationships.
I am not a fan of the tradition of making New Year’s resolutions. For two reasons. Firstly, because resolutions do not work. They are actually just wishes or dreams with no target date. They are usually defined in such a generic way (“enjoy life more”, “learn something new”) that do not involve any specific action you should take to achieve them. It is like trying to win the lottery without purchasing any ticket. You know it’s not going to happen.
