Chris Bailey has been obsessed with the subject of productivity for more than a decade. In this talk, he argues that productivity doesn't have to feel cold and corporate—and that it’s possible to get more done every day without hating the process. Drawing from a decade's worth of research, as well as his yearlong productivity project, Chris argues that the best way to become more productive is to manage our time, attention, and energy better. In addition to sharing this more human approach to productivity, Chris concludes by providing 5 practical ways we can all get more done every day.
Chris has experimented with every productivity technique under the sun including what it’s like to live like a caveman! His latest book "The Productivity Project" is based on his innovative research and underlines the claim that Chris ""might be the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet” (TED talks).
When Chris graduated University, he received two full-time job offers, but decided to decline them both to dedicate a full year of his life to exploring his passion: productivity. Over the past decade his experimentation continued and his work has received national and international media attention from The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Lifehacker, New York Magazine, and countless others. Every month his work is read by about 200,000 people from almost every country around the world. You can view Chris’s work at ALifeofProductivity.com.
