Quiet Productivity:
Sustainable Systems
for Busy People

You have lots to do– and little time to do it. You’re a master at GTD and Todoist already, and you know that tweaking your keyboard shortcuts isn’t going to make the difference to getting back hours in your day. You’re tired, over-committed, and feel like you’re always running at 110% capacity. You need more margin in your productivity system.

Beyond the Algorithm:
Curating an Online Life
Without Social Media

You miss the idea of the early days of the web. Surfing aimlessly, finding fascinating corners of knowledge and creativity that weren’t fed to you by an algorithm. You want to recapture some of that wonder. You’re thinking about taking a social media sabbatical, a social media break, or quitting social media altogether, but you still want to discover engaging content online. You’re not sure where to start.
