Productivity hacks and simple plans to Getting Things Done often lack support during execution. The theoritical basis is sound, steps to follow in a protected, simple environment are easy. Life’s demands and distractions elicit us into procrastination or a return to old habits.
The promise of Get It Done: The 21-Day Mind Hack System to Double Your Productivity and Finish What You Start by Michael Mackintosh is not only to help you preparing a personal vision document and a concise action list for the next couple of weeks, but to overcome resistance, keep focus, and be accountable for what you’re doing.
Three weeks, just 21 days, should be enough to hack your mental framework, start and accomplish a ‘project’. Resistance has many forms. Think of self-doubt, meaningless entertainment, wasting time on low-value work, addictions, depression, and the urge to start new tasks prior to finishing older ones. Mackintocsh spents a good deal in the book on the various aspects of resistance and how to deal with these. Another core concept is accountability, for which you can ask help to friends and family. Once you’re hold accountable to your promises, you’re more eager to get your personal or business project done. Templates and additional materials online serve the practitioner. Well
