Productivity 101

Meh, more of a primer course for people with poorly developed organisational skills or understanding of what it takes to be productive.

If you're just starting out on a quest to find out why you struggle to get anywhere, this is a good place to start. If you want a deep dive, this is not the answer.

Great book/audible.

Covers essential aspects: how people fail and succeed. How people can recovery after initial
failures if they know about themselves and their projects better, etc.
