The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity®

Increase focus and productivity.

  1. 01
    Decision Overload

    Before, we made only a few important decisions a day. Nowadays, due to limitless information and instant communication, we’re forced to make dozens of decisions on a daily basis. We don’t take time to consider the value of each decision, we just react. Meanwhile, the decisions that matter most pass us by.

  2. 02
    Attention is Under Attack

    After just three minutes of work time, the average office worker is distracted. The human brain is wired for distraction, and our need to react will overwrite our ability to think. The age of physical labor has made way for an age of mental labor. And right when we need our minds the most, our ability to think is under attack.

  3. 03
    Low Energy Crisis

    The pressure we’re experiencing to make the right decisions while our attention is under attack, exhausts us. We show up at work feeling burned out and disengaged. We want to give our best, but are unable to do so.

Instead of focusing on getting everything done, we need to focus on getting the right things done without burning out. Time management alone will not suffice. To reach your goals in both your business and your personal life, you must achieve decision management, attention management, and energy management.

Otherwise, we’ll continue to be buried alive.

The Solution

Attention, Energy, and Decision Management

In The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity, timeless principles are combined with current neuroscientific research to help better manage decisions, attention, and energy so you’ll consistently make choices with the biggest return on time.

    First of all, Erik Roger is a great "teacher" , very open minded and he helped us discuss general but also individual issues and productivity problems that we encounter on a daily basis in a our work.
    Second the topics in the workshop are nice and they allowed us to talk about the main things that can help us being productive and not get buried alive in a more practical way. It was also an eye opener to ourselves and also colleagues regarding things we were doing wrong or not properly. It helped us admitting things but also saying to colleagues that what you do here is not productive.
    very much appreciated !

    Great workshop to reflect on what is really important and which small, easy & quick things you can start doing and which should have an immediate effect on - amongst others - your productivity and the way you feel about yourself
