How to Get Things Done When You Have Trouble Getting Things Done - Deepstash
Struggling to be productive

Having a sustainable productivity system is like a holy grail for us who aren't natural doers, but sometimes many of us after a couple of days, falter and forget to check on the interconnected lists and folders we are trying to maintain, but why?

Here are two reasons why we believe we falter on maintaining a productivity system:

  1. Productivity books have too many moving parts and they have a superfluous system that we couldn't be bothered to track; and
  2. Productivity books are always gargantuan projects that depend entirely on the time output of one self-starting person.

The bandwidth problem

A standard "how-to" book or productivity book contains many new ideas and concepts that are difficult for a human brain to take on board all at once, it's overwhelming.

This goes to show that productivity books should be packaged with the pivotal concepts and the steps needed. If we have the simpler tools, we'd be able to maintain productivity, in a much different way, but nonetheless increases productivity dramatically.
