Productivity Book Group is a virtual, personal productivity book discussion club. All are invited to read the easily manageable selections and discuss these personal productivity and related books with the group!
We meet usually twice monthly, covering approximately 50-100 pages per discussion. The logic behind this is to read about 10 pages per day leading up to every discussion, so that it’s realistic.
If you use Google Calendar, it’s easy to keep up-to-date as you can subscribe by visiting http://goo.gl/ym3Vl and clicking on “+Google Calendar” icon on the lower-right corner of the Productivity Book Group calendar. Also, you can keep an eye here for notifications about the book schedules and the archives of the discussions which we’ll post here (and syndicate to iTunes, etc.). You can RSVP for the events via Google+ events; RSVP is not required but is just helpful so I know how many people to expect generally.
It’s easy! Read the selection of the book noted on the schedule and then join the teleconference call at the date/time in the calendar. As well, we may be experimenting with doing some discussions via Google+ Hangouts on Air so that we can have audio/visual interaction during the discussions, along with the teleconference bridge line patched in; we shall see!
Please visit our Upcoming Books page to see the next few reading selections and the dates of our live discussion calls. For prior book discussions, please visit our Episodes page for the archives of those calls.
Not in any particular order(!), some future book selections we’re contemplating include these and many others:
- The Power of Habit by Charles Duuhig
- What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite by David DiSalvo
- The Winner Effect by Ian H. Robertson
- Talent Is Overrated by Geoff Colvin
- The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
We welcome your questions, concerns, recommendations and suggestions! We will definitely need substitute facilitators, volunteers to help spread the word about the reading group, and more, so please let me know if you have a particular skill-set you think can be of help. Thank you!
Here’s to your productive life,
Productivity Book Group
