How Think Productive Australia Began

6/3/2015 |

Do you ever stand at a bookstore and wonder if any of the books could really change your life?

mattcowdryLinchpin by Seth Godin definitely had a strong impact on me. The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris also got me to think about things differently.

Then in June 2014, it happened…I bought “How to Be a Productivity Ninja” by Graham Allcott at Sydney airport.

Half way to Hong Kong I’d read up to chapter 4, which covers email management, and couldn’t wait any longer. I got out my laptop and set to work. By the end of the flight, my inbox was zero, my to do list was organised, I’d cleared my head of nagging thoughts and I felt great!

How to Be a Productivity Ninja is a great read and definitely life changing. This is how it changed mine.

I launched a business!

I found the book so insightful, down to earth, relevant, practical, and motivating, that I decided to approach the author about launching a business in Australia. The response was positive. Great news. Graham was interested in launching in Australia as he had already successfully launched in the USA, UK, Canada, and Benelux. Think Productive have a long list of clients around the world including eBay, Barclays, the Cabinet Office (UK), American Express, The National Trust, GlaxoSmithKline, Universities, and charities such as SecondBite (Aust).

This brings me to today… eight months have passed, I have left a great job behind and embarked on business ownership. Feeling pumped! Drawing on the collective knowledge of Think Productive globally we are now in the position to offer Australian businesses and individuals our no-nonsense, fun, Ninja approach to productivity and information overload. Our workshops range in duration from 90 minutes to full-day and cover emails, attention management, stress reduction and of course, developing “Ninja like” productivity.

Graham is visiting Australia in March and will be running public workshops.

Early Bird tickets are currently available and spaces are limited due to venue restrictions.
