After working as a productivity strategist for more than 15 years, I’ve learned a thing or two about what it takes to thrive as a professional in the 21st century.
Professionals today face more demands on their attention, their time, their energy, and their pocketbooks than ever before…
Thanks to email apps, slack channels, and shared calendars, it is easier than ever to get buried alive in the avalanche of demands crashing down on you each day…
And with the rising cost of living, growing economic uncertainty, and shrinking profit margins (not to mention the AI revolution that’s just around the corner), it’s become “normal” to work your butt off while you fall behind.
That is WAY easier said than done.
I receive emails every week from professionals who want to set themselves up for success in their careers and their lives.
But they’re frustrated because they can’t seem to do it on their own.
Here’s an email I got from Lisa, a lawyer from Houston. She feels like she spends her days “desperately trying to plug all the holes” in a leaky boat:
Here’s an email I got from Chris, a consultant from Milwaukee. He’s frustrated because he spends most of his days “in survivor mode” “treading water”:
And here’s a message I got from Courtney, who lives in Toronto and works in finance. The never-ending demands on her time are making her “tired,” and she’s worried that she’s “lost touch” with her “deeper purpose”:
I could show you dozens of other examples.
I know you want to outperform and outlast your colleagues.
That’s why you’re reading this.
And now you know the five elements you need to have in your life to make that happen.
The only question is, HOW will you put these elements into practice?
Productive Professional is designed to give you the principles, strategies, and tactics you need to crack the new productivity code and thrive as a professional in the 21st century…
And it’s packaged in an approach that’s been proven to WORK for virtually any professional lifestyle.
Just imagine if you were given the most reliable, efficient, and effective stragies each and every month that are tailor made to help YOU make the most of YOUR potential here in the 21st century…
What kind of impact could that have on your career?
How could it improve your life?
For Vanessa, an architect and mother of three young kids, it has “completely transformed everything”…
For Giovanni, a teacher in Oklahoma, it makes him feel like he’s been “invited into the back room where all the real secrets are revealed”…
Productive Professional is founded on a simple premise:
In Productive Professional, I make use of the full arsenal of tools at my disposal (which includes a doctorate in ancient philosophy and 15 years of real-world experience as a productivity strategist) to distill the necessary, timeless (and often virtually unknown) principles for success down into understandable language, along with detailed, step-by-step instructions that will give you everything you need to implement the most effective strategies and tactics in your life.
In each issue, I will uncover ONE fundamental principle and ONE effective strategy you can use to put that principle into practice, as well as STEP-BY-STEP GUIDANCE to help you apply the most effective tactics in your life.
Each issue of Productive Professional ticks the following boxes:
We’re all at different stages of our lives and careers.
We all have different levels of ambition and different goals we want to achieve.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution or secret formula that will work for everyone.
That’s why you won’t find one anywhere in Productive Professional
So, if you’re looking for a “quick fix” or “magic bullet,” you won’t find it here.
Instead, you’ll find the tools and the map, as well as the core strategies, clear principles, step-by-step guidance, and a whole lot of encouragement.
Drawing on my 15+ years of experience, I will offer you everything I possibly can to help you succeed.
I feel passionate about this because I firmly believe that learning to live your most productive life will be the most valuable skill in your toolbelt.
I’ve seen firsthand the value it has brought in my own life.
And I’ve seen it completely transform the lives of hundreds—err, thousands—of other people as well.
BUT, Productive Professional will be beneficial for you only if…
If that’s you, I’m confident that Productive Professional can help you live your most productive – and fulfilled – life.
I’m not trying to win a competition for the for sexiest product. I’m interested in giving you the most reliable, efficient and effective path to your most productive life.
And, as it turns out, a newsletter is actually the format that is proven to work best for the way our brains are naturally wired:
In short, Productive Professional gives your brain exactly what it needs for you to have success.
Is it any surprise that this format has also been shown to produce the best results?
But don’t just take my word for it.

Most People: “I have 12 audiobooks and 37 ‘success’ podcasts on my phone that I’m going to listen to. I know one of them is going to help me get motivated. If not, I can always look up a motivational video on YouTube.”
Productive Professionals: “I’m confident that I will win the motivation battle every day because I have a proven strategy in place that ensures my day is filled with the things that will actually make an impact–things that bring me closer to achieving goals that excite me. My motivation comes from within, and that kind of motivation always wins out.”
Most People: “If I could just find the right productivity app, tip, trick, or morning routine, then I could finally get everything done. I just need to find the right tool that can help me manage everything and focus on actually getting stuff done.”
Productive Professionals: “I don’t worry about apps, tricks, or hacks. Sure, I use tactics. But I know that they only work because I use them based on my deeper principles and strategies. If I didn’t have the principles and strategies in place that ensure I work on the exact right things to take me exactly where I want to go, all the tactics in the world would be useless to me. But with principles and strategies in place that work along with my brain, the tactics I use become 10x more effective.”
Most People: “There are plenty of things in life that I want. I’d love to have more money, a little more time, and more confidence. I’ve even set goals based on these things. I don’t know if I’ll achieve them, but at least I’m working toward something.”
Productive Professionals: “Because I understand how my brain works, I know that there is a science to setting (and achieving) goals. And I know that the goals I set are a foundational part of the reliable strategy I use day in and day out. I have incredibly ambitious goals–goals that I would have been afraid to set even a few months ago. But I take on each day with confidence that I will achieve each and every single one of them. And, guess what? I always do!”
Most People: “I already work hard. What else am I supposed to do? I only have so many hours in the day.”
Productive Professionals: “I know I’m already working hard, but that doesn’t mean I can’t find ways to do more and save time. I know I can always improve my efficiency, sharpen my focus, and invest my time in ways that give me higher returns. And I know doing this will help me reach my goals faster.”
Most People: “I do the best I can with what I have. I try not to waste too much time and energy, and I try to work as efficiently as I can.”
Productive Professionals: “Doing my best is important to me, but it has nothing to do with efficiency. Efficiency is always measurable. That’s why I make sure I always know what I’m doing when, and I always make sure to have a proven evaluation process in place to catch any inefficiencies that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.”
ON ENDLESS TASKS
Most People: “I have so much to do. I don’t even know where to start. I’m overwhelmed just looking at my to-do list.”
Productive Professionals: “I’m confident that I will get every single one of the things on my to-do list done today because I have a reliable plan in place–a plan designed specifically to work along with my brain.”
ON MANAGING TIME
Most People: “The only way I can possibly get more done is to work longer hours. I only have 24 hours in the day. Hustle, hustle, hustle!”
Productive Professionals: “I approach time like a wise investor. I know that not every hour is created equal. And I know that I can invest my time in things that will actually create more time for me. I focus very carefully on how I can spend my time in order to bring the best return possible.”
If you’re serious about thriving as a professional here in the 21st century, the choice should be obvious by now.
Productive Professional will give you everything you need to thrive and then some.
It’s what one subscriber has referred to as “the Henry difference.”
Here are some of the most common questions we get about Productive Professional:
I’ve specifically designed Productive Professional so that, regardless of your current career stage or level of productivity, you can benefit. So, if you’re serious about your career and about achieving bigger and better results, I believe Productive Professional can help.
However, Productive Professional will only benefit you if you take what you learn seriously and apply it to your life. If you are not ready to do that, then you are not ready to join.
Productive Professional is designed specifically for professionals. Admittedly, the line between professional and nonprofessional careers is not always clear. So, here are some rough guidelines: If you have a university degree, an office, or receive a salary, you are likely a professional. Similarly, if you’re a solopreneur or entrepreneur, you are a professional. If you don’t meet any of these criteria, you will want to consider carefully whether Productive Professional will be a good investment of your money.
Maybe. The strategies we focus on in Productive Professional will be geared toward professionals and entrepreneurs. Many of them can be applied in other jobs as well, but that can only be determined on a case-by-case basis.
That’s fine. I won’t hold it against you. You can cancel your membership at any point.
If you cancel your membership for any reason, you can rest assured that your card will not be charged again from the point of cancellation onward.
I’ve made the membership fee as low as possible. Honestly, it’s way less than I should be charging. If you cannot afford it, I would advise you to save up for a few months until you can.
This depends on on the plan you sign up for. The basic plan covers the monthly newsletter going forward. The VIP and Premium plans include access to an archive of select resources, including previous workshops, newsletters, and podcasts.
I cannot promise that you will make more money because I don’t know how well you will implement what you learn. But I can tell you that, if you learn to master the skill of becoming highly productive, and if you consistently apply it to your life, you will have plenty of opportunities to make a lot more money. It will be completely up to you whether you pursue them.
You will see tangible results quickly (sometimes within a day or two!), if you do your part by putting in the work.
