The last three years have been huge for me. I’ve got more things done than ever, moved countries, bought an appartment and a small office building, spent loads of time with my family and friends, kept a healthy lifestyle, and exercised at least 4 times a week.

Many variables determine your overall productivity. Tools, apps, or hacks, don’t work if you lack the right mindset because productivity is a way of living.

It’s about achieving maximum output, getting shit done, and not wasting time. I think that output and happiness go hand in hand. To me, doing nothing equals misery.

I want to share 20 things I’ve done in the past three years that have made me more productive than ever (in no particular order).

  1. Always Cut To The Chase
    With everything in life, there’s a bunch of crap, and there’s stuff that matters. Chit chat, small talk, delaying, waiting around, not speaking up, is all useless. If you want to get shit done, you have to jump straight into the action.

Without these 20 things, I wouldn’t be productive at all. You may have noticed that I don’t get into details, like which tools and apps I use (you can learn more about the tools I use here).

Those things matter, but tools are not the determining factor. It’s about creating a productivity mindset and environment that lets you thrive.

I only care about getting things done in a fun and not stressful way. That makes doing work way more fun and rewarding. Two things you can never get enough of.
