Not Today: The 9 Habits of Extreme Productivity


Take control of your TIME, achieve your goals, and become unstoppable.

When their five-year-old son fought for his life, business leaders Erica and Mike Schultz learned a new way to live, work, and succeed—discovering how to achieve extreme productivity with heart and purpose.

Ari Schultz was an extraordinary baby, beginning life in a pitched battle against heart disease. The same year, his parents launched their business. They had no choice but to keep it going. For the next five years, Erica and Mike Schultz learned how to balance the demands of their jobs, commuting to the hospital, and spending time with their growing family—along the way, noting the tricks and techniques that allowed them to get work done, even while living in the cardiac ICU and later after heartbreaking loss.

After reflection and recovery, Mike and Erica codified their method of coping and working, and set out to study the work habits of extremely productive people. In Not Today, they reveal the 9 Habits of Extreme Productivity along with easy-to-apply techniques, including:

  • Staying focused—and positive—even in difficult times
  • Clearly defining your motivations through written goals
  • Ending procrastination with helpful hacks
  • Disrupting unproductive thought cycles and break bad habits for good
  • Becoming impossible to distract
  • Working in powerful planned “sprints” to get in the zone
  • Finding ways to refuel your mental and physical energy

Interweaving their son’s poignant story with effective productivity and happiness strategies, Not Today shows how anyone can better manage their time—while living a more energetic and meaningful life.

Featuring the foreword by Tom Rinaldi, Reporter at Fox Sports and former ESPN award-winning storyteller.
