1. How is the primer different from TAoL’s other products?
There are three levels of productivity:
- Competence – Getting organised and getting more done;
- Balance – Extending competence to every part of your life; and
- Meaning – Clarifying why you’re here, where you’re going and why it matters.
And TAoL has three productivity-related products:
- The TRACKTION Masterclass – A 6-week course and community focussed on end-to-end productivity (Focus: interaction of all three levels);
- The TRACKTION Planner – A 90-day daily planner that helps you focus what’s holding you back, build new habits and plan your days and your weeks for success (Focus: balance and competence); and
- TAoL’s Ultimate Productivity Primer (This book 👆) – The ultimate time and task management handbook you wish you’d been given on your first day of work (Focus: hardcore competence).
Here’s a picture that helps me visualise how they all interact:
Short answer? If you’re struggling to get organised, feel caught up in the day-to-day rat race and want to master task and time management – this primer is for you.
2. How is the primer different from TAoL’s free articles and book summaries?
Great question. Here are two main differences…
1st – The primer will be the single source of truth for all the best task and time management tips I’ve picked up at Oxford, McKinsey and as a productivity focussed entrepreneur.
To get there, we’ll deep-dive into topics (like email and calendar management, daily rituals and defeating distractions) that I haven’t really touched yet on the blog.
2nd – Picture all of TAoL’s productivity content as food…
The blog contains lots of ingredients and the occasional side dish to snack on.
The primer is where I’ll combine all those things into a single, structured meal you can chomp through in one place, course by course.
3. Will there be an e-book / hard copy version?
Initially, the primer will only be available as an eBook (MOBI, PDF and any other format people ask for). That’s what you can order on this page.
Eventually, I’ll produce hard copy and audio versions but let’s cross those bridges when we get to them!
4. What if I decide it’s not for me?
I understand that the only way to really know if this primer is going to live up to its promises is to get in and assess it from the inside. (You wouldn’t buy a house without checking out the contents first, would you?)
That’s why every order comes with a full, anytime, 100% money-back guarantee.
If you don’t get results (or even if you just change your mind), simply send me an email anytime for a no-questions-asked, prompt, full and courteous refund.
5. Something else?
If you’re interested in the primer and still have questions, get in touch.
I’ll get back to you, personally, ASAP.
