Hi! I’m Alex.
My belief is simple: productivity is not something you do, it’s something you are.
Productivity is an art; it’s mastery of self.
And I’m unashamed to say that I’ve spent the better part of the last 10 years obsessively working on this art. I haven’t fully mastered it yet (and I’m not sure I ever will) but I’ve learned a hell of a lot along the way!
I want to live my life as efficiently as possible. I want to get the most out of my brain and my productivity. Not necessarily because I like working, but because I like making meaningful progress in my goals.
Progression, and the feeling of improvement, is what gives me purpose, it’s what makes me happy.
And whether or not you’re as passionate about productivity as I am, you probably want to improve yourself in some way too.
Did you know that between 20 and 25% of adults are chronic procrastinators?
Incredible, isn’t it? Just think about how much of your life you’ve wasted.
I’ve personally thrown away weeks (maybe months?) doing literally nothing, because I was avoiding doing… something.
And that’s kind of what Productive You is all about: how to overcome procrastination, improve your quality of life, and become a more, well… Productive You!
I was first introduced to the concepts of productivity and efficiency in the International Baccalaureate program.
This program pushed my work ethic to its limit, and the classes were more challenging than many of my college courses.
I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in entrepreneurship on the Dean’s List (after switching from finance), and a Civically Engaged Scholars Diploma (300+ volunteer hours, 150+ leadership hours, high academics.)
Since then I’ve developed a strong interest in the brain, and how to optimize its practical applications. I plan to go back to school for psychology, or possibly neuroscience, I’m not sure which.
Professionally, I took my knowledge of productivity and working strategies to go from the worst, to the best salesman of all-time for an Inc 500 pharmaceutical company.
So, for me, productivity isn’t about getting more work done, it’s about getting the time to do the things I enjoy.
It’s about happiness.
And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
