Productivity 2.0: How the New Rules of Work Are Changing the Game | Zen Habits

For years, books and articles and blogs on productivity have been showing us how to be more productive: crank out the tasks, multi-task, work faster, be organized.

In short, they’ve taught us to be a good part of a corporation that wants more out of us. But that’s old-school productivity, or Productivity 1.0.

Today let’s take a look at Productivity 2.0: a new set of rules have changed everything for the workers of the world. Don’t crank out tasks — learn to work with a deeper focus. Don’t plan and hold meetings and form committees — just launch the software or product or service and keep improving it. Don’t spend time organizing — you’ve got more important things to worry about.

Love this approach! Get a deeper focus and stop planning it so much — DO IT. Like that a lot.

Just have one issue…to get rid of organization would be a huge problem for most people I think!

Organization is a foundation, for all success, I believe.

“Let all things be done decently and in order” –it’s biblical too!

Thanks for this post.
