Personal Notes On Productivity (A categorization of various resources)

For each topic, I’ve curated a few links that I’ve found to be pretty high quality.

  • Meta:(Epiphany Addiction, Reversing Advice, Excellence Porn)

  • @Learning:

  • Success People: (Mastery),(ChoosingTopics: Osci,PG)

  • Thinking: (Ikigai, Stoicism, Rationality)

  • HabitChange: (!ShootDog)

  • Productivity.Principles/​Energy/​Relaxation:(FullEngagement, ArtOfLearning)

  • Productivity.Systems/​Hacks: (Autofocus, GTD/​ZTD, EatFrog),(Scott Young)

  • Depression/​Anxiety:

  • Social:

  • Meditation

I’d like feedback on:

  • What other categories/​links would you include (I’m sure there’s lots of interesting stuff I’m missing.)? What do you think of the categorization (“Thinking” is a pretty large category.)?

  • Whether you think I should make cross-posts about sub-topics here. The main benefit of making more cross posts is that the discussion/​comments would be more focused on those topics. In particular, I think that looking at SuccessfulPeople.Startups, SuccessfulPeople.Science, and the Meditation document are the most original parts of this post.

    • SuccessfulPeople.Startups contains a categorization of some of Paul Graham’s essays (e.g. Having ideas, fund-raising, executing, etc).

    • The SuccessfulPeople.Science link contains a separate categorization of advice specifically for scientists (e.g. Picking ideas, the importance of being persistent, the importance of reading widely, etc).

    • The meditation document lists a few high quality meditation resources that I’ve found (and I’ve read ~10 books on meditation. Most of it is crap. Some of the stuff I list is orders of magnitude better than the median meditation book I’ve read.).

  • Whatever seems salient to you.
