From The Seven Secrets of the Prolific: The Three Approaches to Productivity
This great cartoon by the great Barry Deutsch from my new book The Seven Secrets of the Prolific illustrates the central challenge of productivity. Everyone encounters obstacles to production. A's surmount them with a minimum of effort and delay; B's organize their life and work so that the obstacle doesn't happen or isn't perceived as such; C's get derailed. The Seven Secrets of the Prolific tells you how to evolve from a C to A to B.
