#BookReview Focusing on what really matters
Monday, October 26, 2020

I haven’t read a productivity book in a while, but boy was I glad the one I reluctantly picked up was “make time” by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky. The timing is no surprise I suppose. During the first months of the pandemic, I was all over the place. I was struggling to process the transition from physical to virtual lectures, the brittle state of health of my loved ones, and the anxiety and uncertainty all around me (which has become omnipresent as of late). I had a hard time staying on task. My mind was whirling all the time. I just couldn’t focus.


Things had to change, and fast. I came to realize that many of the techniques I picked up throughout the years weren’t of much help at the moment. So I went hunting for a solution, and by hunting I mean, in my usual fashion, perusing digital libraries for a book. Strike of luck, I came across “Make Time” and found it to address my most pressing issue of “How to stay on task” in a very approachable manner that I’m sure will resonate with a lot of us.
