A Simple Productivity Tool To Make 2015 Super Productive

This week I received a package from Michael Bungay Stanier of Box of Crayons containing a little productivity tool. He called it the 2015 Planner.

It was a simple postcard, and on the back it said:

My Plans For 2015
MORE + ______________
LESS – _______________

Below this was a simple question: “Is what I’m doing now taking me closer to or further from that?”

I spent quite a bit of time thinking through what my “more & less” would be for the year. Because I’ve been so busy with travel and writing, I decided my more would be “content creation”, and my less would be “tweaking”, which I’m prone to do when under stress.

What are your “more & less” for 2015? Please share them with the rest of us.

    More: creating for creating’s sake (fuel!).
    Less: pretending that I can get it all done if I just try a little harder.
    Thanks for the exercise!
