Paradoxical Productivity 35 – Nicholas Bate

I’ve been enjoying Nicholas Bate’s latest mini-book, Paradoxical Productivity 35, in the run-up to the traditional Christmas/New Year period of planning, contemplation and rumination.  35 thought-provoking tips for a more effective year ahead that centre on doing the right things, at the right time, with the right degree of attention:

8.    Put the work in at the start: for an easy life later on.

26.  Lunch is not time to catch up on e-mail.

31.  By hand, in person.

It’s the kind of book to always have on the corner of your desk, as a reminder and a talisman against bad habits.
