Productivity Workflow Formula Self-Assessment
What if you could DO less and ACHIEVE more?

Product: Online streamed self-assessment application (not downloaded), limited one-year subscription (5 tests or 12 months, whichever comes first), password controlled

Duration: 30 questions in six categories: 1) Reduce Your To-Do List, 2) Reduce Your Obligations, 3) Reduce Your Distractions, 4) Reduce Incoming Information, 5) Reduce Inefficiencies, and 6) Reduce Energy Expenditures. The self-assessment takes 10-15 minutes to answer.

Results: The radar graph and score chart display six scores according to the six major chapters of the book: 1) Determine What to Do, 2) Schedule Time to Do It, 3) Focus Your Attention, 4) Process New Information, 5) Close the Loop, and 6) Manage Your Capacity. The results include interpretation from author, summaries of the Productivty Workflow Formula components, follow-up questions to consider based on scores, author's closing statement, and print option.

BASED ON THE BOOK: Look at your to-do list. It's ridiculous. You can't get all that done. You're already at capacity. And it probably doesn't even list every single thing you need to do. The last thing you want to do is more. As a skeptical audience member once told author Laura Stack before a presentation, "I don't want to hear a productivity consultant telling me to do more with less. I want to do less and achieve more."

This is exactly what Stack offers. You're never going to save time and increase efficiency by adding more to your bloated list. You need a system: a comprehensive approach that will enable you to organize your life around the tasks that really matter and let go of the ones that don't. Stack's innovative, step-by-step Productivity Workflow Formula allows you to spend less time and achieve greater results than you ever thought possible. By following her logical and intuitive process, you can wrestle your schedule into submission. Ultimately, you can recover as much as ninety minutes of your day (or even more) to use as you see fit.

Stack shows how to separate the productive wheat from the nonproductive chaff-to home in on the high-value tasks, protect the time to do them, and focus on their execution. Throughout this book, you'll learn how to scale back; reduce, reduce, reduce is Stack's mantra. You'll find dozens of ways to shrink your to-do list, calendar commitments, distractions, interruptions, information overload, inefficiencies, and energy expenditures. Each reduction will increase your results and save you time.

You know you can't work any harder-if you want to accomplish more, you have to work differently. Let Laura Stack show you how you can keep your sanity, advance your career, and spend more time with your family and friends.
