30 Days of Productivity and Getting Results the Agile Way

30 Days of Productivity and Getting Results the Agile Way

  • Comments 1

Today was the final day of 30 Days of Getting Results, based on my book Getting Results the Agile Way.

It’s basically free training on many of the key skills for:

  • Making meaning / Finding purpose
  • Focus
  • Productivity
  • Time Management
  • Energy Management

It’s the synthesis of what I’ve learned at Microsoft in the trenches and my travels in life, as well as from many very good mentors.  Mostly, it’s what I’ve learned from the school of hard knocks, trial and error, and necessity (I think of it as a collection of Microsoft Survival Skills in a box.)

Agile Results
Agile Results is a personal results system for work and life.  It’s a simple system for meaningful results that you can apply whenever you need it.  It’s a way to help you make the most of what you’ve got.  It’s a way to be the author of your life, and write your story forward.

Problems Addressed

  • How to improve your personal productivity and personal effectiveness
  • How to achieve work-life balance
  • How to find your motivation and drive
  • How to find your purpose and your passion
  • How to deal with being overloaded or overwhelmed
  • How to change a habit and make it stick
  • How to focus and direct your attention with skill
  • How to manage your time
  • How to spend more time on the things that really matter to you
  • How to play to your strengths and spend less time in weaknesses
  • How to make the most of your your moments, days, weeks, months, and years

It’s been a fun ride and I’ve heard some amazing stories from people around the world.  I’ve enjoyed the emails and stories from people who have used the system to enhance their life, a day at a time, a story at a time.
