I recently read Your Brain at Work, authored by David Rock, as part of the leadership development program at work. Having tried various different productivity formulas in the past – including Covey’s 7 habits methods, David Allen’s GTD, Personal Kanban etc. – this scientific insight into the brain finally reveals WHY some of these approaches work – and more importantly, why they fail.
Highly recommend this book! Here is a mindmap of the core ideas in the book.
