The Productivity Book
By Michael Brecht

Ever wondered what the secret is to productivity? Here’s a hint: there isn’t just one. Introducing the Doodle Productivity Book! Containing in-depth interviews with 30 of the world’s top productivity & time management experts, this book lifts the lid on the industry’s best kept tips and tricks. The result? An engaging and practical guide that will help you find your natural pace, so you can work smarter—not harder.

I got a chance to ask Michael Brecht what the most important thing he learned while writing this book was. He had a lot to say.

We understand that the people who use our service do so because they’re passionate about finding a balance 
and living a happier, more fulfilled life.That’s why an integral part of our business model has 
always been to respond to our users’ needs; discovering what features could be added and learning how they 
use the platform so that we can create a responsive, dynamic service. Thanks to this, Doodle has also been embraced by the productivity and time management community, and is regularly endorsed and recommended by professionals everywhere, simply on the basis of its usefulness.

I’m extremely grateful for this acceptance. Seeing Doodle used as a powerful productivity tool says a 
lot about the potential of our platform. This is where the idea for The Doodle Productivity Book came from. 
We wanted to connect our two communities: the regular Doodle users and the professionals, and explore not 
just how Doodle can improve productivity, but how it can be used in conjunction with other technologies 
and methods.

For me, the most important thing that I learned while writing this book—and what I hope our readers will also 
find—is that productivity is a very personal thing. Often people enter into highly-demanding, unnatural 
productivity routines that require strenuous commitment. This balancing act then falls apart the moment 
something unexpected enters the system. The point is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and there is no 
magic app or device that is going to solve life’s hurdles. It’s about being aware of the different methods and 
smart technologies available, and then combining them in a way that meets your immediate needs while still 
being flexible enough to not break when put under pressure.

That’s really the essence of the Doodle Productivity Book. It aims to help the reader learn more about their 
personal approach to productivity, and with 30 interviews there’s a lot to be learned. It was my first publication, 
and I’m happy to say that it was a huge success. Regardless of whether or not you’ve used Doodle, I 
believe everyone can learn a lot about productivity and themselves from reading this book.
