Publisher's Summary

Short. To the point. To help high performers become even more productive.
Results are what matter the most to you. You want to be a reliable producer of value in your chosen domain: whether it's your career, business, sports, studies, non-profit endeavors, or any other undertaking requiring intense focus.
You'd like to learn how to become more productive, but your time is precious, and you don't have time for a 500-page book only to discover that you can summarize it with two sentences.
If that's you, Self-Disciplined Producer is for you. Written with high performers in mind, it's a concise guide covering the most effective techniques to improve your productivity. You'll discover:



A confusingly simple strategy of an American novelist and screenwriter that can help you overcome one habit that is most harming your productivity
How distractions can make you eager to get to work
Three strategies to ensure that you always finish what you started instead of leaving all your projects half-finished
A principle developed in the 14th century by an English philosopher that can help you simplify your workday and become more productive
A law humorously invented by a British naval historian that can help you perform your most important tasks in half the time usually needed to get them done
The author of Self-Disciplined Producer has been using these techniques to help him publish 16 books, create four video courses with over 25,000 enrolled students in total, and translate his books into 10 languages-all in the span of two and a half years.
If you're eager to learn how to double, triple, or even quadruple your productivity, don't hesitate any longer. Invest an amount equivalent to what you pay for a cup of coffee and reap the benefits that might lead to thousandfold or higher returns.

A Re-Energizing Refresher on the Power of Focus

If you could sum up Self-Disciplined Producer: Develop a Powerful Work Ethic, Improve Your Focus, and Produce Better Results in three words, what would they be?

Honest, Uplifting, Resonant

What did you like best about this story?

The power of sustained focus stayed in the spotlight reminding me of how bias toward action in a positive direction continues to be a game-changer for those who want to live great lives.

Which scene was your favorite?

I was struck with the suggestion of writing e-mail drafts and forcing one's self to discard them or complete them fully before going on to another e-mail. That would be a costly, but potentially great way to help foster greater focus.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, most definitely.

Any additional comments?

I appreciated how direct and succinct the presentation was. Did not at all feel like there was unnecessarily filler, unlike other audiobooks.

short and sweet

What did you love best about Self-Disciplined Producer: Develop a Powerful Work Ethic, Improve Your Focus, and Produce Better Results?

This book is a short and sweet map to productivity. Only time will tell if it will work but I feel that it is an authentic presentation of the process that the author uses. The theory part is clearly articulated and always followed by actionable steps. Much of the book is information that you have probably already heard however it is packaged in a way that is easy to understand and easy to enact.

What does John Gagnepain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration is clear and easy to follow. The voice sounds full of life and is not monotone.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, the fluff that you might usually get from a book in this category is all stripped away. I had to take it in sections and think about how to apply it to my life. Though the book is short it is very dense in information.
