Are you struggling to do the things you know are important because of how annoying or uninteresting they are?
Are you frustrated by the lack of hours in the day?
Do you wish you could dictate your schedule instead of just letting things happen and hoping for the best?
Once you understand how you are currently spending your time and why, you’ll be able to take control of what you accomplish every day and ensure that your actions tie back to your most important values and life priorities.
How is this possible?
By constructing your very own effort matrix. The effort matrix depicts where your activities lie in the context of importance and interest:
1. Gung-Ho (we love this part of our lives)
2. Grind (things that are vitally important and we know we must do)
3. Guilty Pleasure (fun stuff)
4. Screw It (not worth the effort)
Spending your time on activities of high importance and high interest makes you happier. Shifting high-value activities into a place of high importance and high interest makes you more productive.
In The Effort Matrix, you will learn how to do this.
We’ll help you define your high-value activities that tie back to your top priorities, make time every day for them, craft a bulletproof to-do list system that prioritizes itself, and build productivity routines that maximize your efforts throughout the week.
Stop wasting time on the things that don’t matter and wondering why nothing ever gets done.
To live a productive life, we can follow all kinds of guidelines, tools, and rules but we will only be successful if we harness our efforts! This book explores where most people fall short on productivity because of the unwillingness to put effort into the right things.
Understand your effort matrix and follow the simple guidelines in this book and you’ll become more productive and happier at the same time.
