Bite-sized Blitz Newsletter: Practical Productivity in Bite-sized Steps

Bite-sized Blitz: Practical Productivity in Bite-sized Steps

I recently started work on a new book about productivity, which I call the ‘Bite-sized Blitz’. During the process of forming the idea behind it I have come to realise that, without knowing it, I had a huge passion for productivity. I am always looking for ways to be more productive in the fast pace age I find myself in, but it took me a while to realise I had enough knowledge to write about it regularly. I wrote one productivity piece about 5 years ago called Distributed Organizational Tools, but nothing much since except in my day job as a Web developer. I have tried many more tools and methodologies since than, so I realised I had enough material to fill a productivity blog.

Although the Bite-sized Blitz blog shares the same name with my book, it will have one difference. This blog will be about sharing the full range of my productivity experience, as well as trying out new methodologies, ideas and tools for improvement. Where the blog will tie together with my book is the idea behind the name Bite-sized Blitz, which is about dealing with big things in bite-sized chunks. Over the years I have brought a number of productivity ideas together in order to deal with a heavy workload whilst managing chronic health issues. I have learned how to pace myself and still get far more done than I had ever thought possible before 2012. I have seen such an improvement in my stress levels as a result so now it’s time for me to share what I’ve learned.

I am working on setting up the blog website, my first attempt about a week ago has gone wrong so I have to start again. I decided in the meantime to create the Bite-sized Blitz newsletter to support the blog, book and to give a way free productivity documents and cheat sheets.  So if you would like to be updated with news about the blog and my new book please subscribe to the Bite-sized Blitz mailing list.

EDIT: The website is now up and running! You can find it here: http://www.BitesizedBlitz.com

Do you have a review suggestion or article idea for the Bite-sized Blitz?  Let me know in the comments.

Writing Achievement Unlocked

So far things have been a little slow on the publishing front of Hermit Studio right now as the main focus is being put into the games and photography projects scheduled (as our first major publishing project will an an annual anthology). This week however Niamh Brown, a member of Hermit Studio, received a gift of a collection of comments handwritten in ink in a leather bound book from the good people at bhuman.co.uk This was for donating her story to them for their anthology of stories of courage for people in hard times. Niamh has been seriously writing for over a decade now and although she has written online for five years this will be her first time in print once the book is released and donated to those in need.
