The central thesis of this book is that there are 4 different productivity styles, and by knowing yours, you can become more productive.
After taking a quick assessment to determine your style, the rest of the book covers how to better organize your work so that it emphasizes your strengths. As a side benefit, you also learn how people with productivity styles different from yours work best, which will help you start to adjust your approach when working with someone who has a different style.
If you’ve ever gotten a ‘time management’ tip from a friend or coworker and it didn’t work for you, it is probably because their productivity style is different from yours.
Instead of giving ‘hacks’ for productivity, this book helps you understand and embrace what works and doesn’t work for you, and the tools to adjust your work so that it will work better for you.
