Here are the 7 lessons on personal productivity learnt from this interview:

  1. Don’t’ spend time attending meetings (unless absolutely necessary)
  2. Keep yourself away from things which are stalling – social networks, television (list is endless)
  3. Focus on things you do very well and do them with leverage and passion
  4. Do things where you feel uncomfortable and scary, don’t let the resistance slow you down
  5. You have a built-in-thing, ‘a talent’, the world is afraid of – show it
  6. Pick yourself, don’t wait for someone or some else’s permission to get started
  7. Don’t keep a schedule, modeling your day based on someone’s is a huge mistake

  1. Great article here, Hrishikesh.
    Seth Godin is actually one of my top IM favorites, in fact he made other people rich because of his advices and helpful tips on how to become successful in business.

    On the other hand, Richard Branson’s secrets to productivity are also worth checking. He made it to become a successful entrepreneur despite the fact that he has dyslexia. One of his tips that I liked the most is this “To be productive you should love what you do”.
