Are You a Self-Help Dropout?

Posted By on February 13, 2009

Feel like a self-help dropout? You’re not alone. Comedian and writer Chris Hardwick penned a hysterical article about his attempts to improve his productivity.

In the article, Hardwick takes three books – Getting Things Done by David Allen; Never Check E-Mail in the Morning by Julie Morgenstern; and The Four-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss – and time with each of the tomes to see if he can bypass procrastination and master time management and productivity skills.

Hilarity ensues. Who knew productivity could ever be discussed in the same breath as pine squirrels and Rob Zombie? But it does in Hardwick’s world.

In the end, Hardwick decides to steal the best ideas out of the three books and use them. This is something that I like to do since there is no cookie cutter approach to organizing and time management. Even if you discover one good idea in an organizing book, blog or newsletter, it was worth it.
