15 Best Productivity Books (for Getting Things Done!)
If I have a personal favorite section of the “habit books” list –this is it.
I am constantly reading, learning and fine-tuning my productivity. I constantly try new things and keep abreast of many different methods of being productive.
Mainly due to the fact that I want to get as much done in as little time as possible, so I can go places and enjoy my life.
This list represents the creme de’ la creme of the productivity field.
It includes a pair of books by productivity “guru” David Allen (Could this list be complete without some of his books?)
Quite a few good books here. If you are someone who loves productivity, I highly recommend checking out all of the ideas on this list.
See what works for you. See what doesn’t… and become a productivity superstar.

A Smarter You in 15 Minutes?
If you enjoy reading nonfiction books, then I encourage you to check out the Blinkist app.
Blinkist is an interesting concept…
Blinkist summarized over 2,000 of the bestselling books and put them into condensed 7 to 15 minute reads (or “blinks”). The idea here is to give you the key insights and important lessons — without wasting your time on pointless information.
Blinkist book summaries are perfect for anyone who wants to maximize those random moments when you have to kill time. Like when you want to kill time before an appointment or you’re standing on a long line at Starbucks.
You can use Blinkist to complete a book daily, learn the valuable lessons, and avoid the fluff that often pad longer books.
