Why Lee’s Productivity Method Works

Why Lee’s Productivity Method Works

  • It’s simple: complexity is often a weakness as it makes it harder to get back on track when unforeseen events happen.
  • It narrows the goals: If you have too many ideas or tasks trimming away what isn’t essential is key. Otherwise, you’ll commit to nothing and be distracted by everything.
  • It gives a starting point: Starting is the biggest hurdle to finishing most tasks. Lee’s method forces you to decide on your first task the night before you go to work.
  • It prevents multitasking: There’s scientific evidence that having fewer priorities leads to better work. Mastery requires focus and consistency.
