A number of years ago, I realized that my approach to being productive needed to be quite different from what seemed to work for others. I always struggled to feel productive, to focus, to handle the day-to-day tasks and to hit deadlines. After experimenting with every day planner and time-tracking system I could get my hands on and finding that nothing worked, I realized that I’d need to come up with my own personal productivity system that would work for me.
