How To Create Your Own Productivity System

“Productivity is about understanding what you really want to do, then building systems to make it work for you. The goal isn’t Inbox Zero. (Who gives a shit?) Your goal is to enable yourself to perform at your very best, every day, and over the course of weeks and months and years.”

This isn’t a new productivity hack — it’s a mindset for how to approach your own productivity and come up with a system that works best for you.

Ramit Sethi shares his own approach to productivity and explains the three tiers of productivity on which it’s based.

That includes fundamentals (sleep, environment, etc.), psychology (how you set boundaries, handle setbacks, etc.), and details (which apps do you use, etc.).

He also notes that details are the least important element of the system and yet the one obsessed over the most by people.
