Welcome to your online resource of articles relating to your Productivity Breakthrough Modular programme!

This is not meant to be an exhaustive resource on the various topics in the programme, but rather a collection of articles and blogs that I found useful.   I might even add articles during the course of the programme when I come across something valuable.

There will be no detailed discussion about these articles in the different modules.  Nor will there be a “test”.

These articles will stay on this web site for the duration of your programme, but I suggest that you create a “Productivity Breakthrough” folder on your computer and download and save the articles.

It will be great if you can read and review the articles before you do the module, but there is no specific sequence in which you should read it.

I hope you find value in reading them and applying some of the ideas.

I hold no copyright on these articles so feel free to share what you find of value with family, friends, and colleagues.

And when you find something of particular value, teach it to someone within 48 hours after reading it.
