The bad news is that being productive is hard. Focusing on the hard tasks it's also hard. It’s pretty damn hard. It took me a decade to train myself to be really productive and eliminate all the distractions and low‑value activities. Imagine improving your productivity like exercising. Beginnings are hard, but at some point, you just can’t stop exercising, especially after seeing all the benefits and improvements. It’s the same with productivity. You need to build yourself a proper system, push yourself out of the comfort zone a few times, and soon you will see the first improvements and results.

Being reactive means that you react to every stimulus from the environment, immediately as it happens. Going from a reactive to proactive approach to time management is pretty simple. You just have to decide when, where and how you’ll react to external impulses and communicate your productivity rules with others.

The more productive you are, the more value you get for the least amount of effort. To improve your productivity you have to do the right things the right way.

It might sound harsh to say no to people almost all the time, especially because feelings of guilt can kick in, but it’s really an easy thing to do. The trick is to make “no” your default answer to everything. Your decision making shouldn’t start with the question – “should I do that or not”.
