Welcome to the world of the Productivitree.

The tree has grown from the hearts and minds of more than 12 000 people from 320 companies in 12 countries.  Since 2003 they have been helping to cultivate the Productivitree by feeding it the results they found to bear sweet fruits of productivity in their lives.

The Productivitree is dynamic. It grows new branches.  It gets new grafts from new experiences. Old wood gets pruned. Now and then it sheds a few leaves.

Welcome. Relax. Enjoy the pause in the shade of the Productivitree.  And in time, may you grow with the tree and enjoy its sweet fruits.

Transform your sweat spot into your sweet spot


Once upon a time, in a village far, far away,
There was a tree.
The tree had 8 roots.
It bore 8 different fruits.
It was a magic tree.
It was The Productivitree.

After centuries of productive growth, It still lives the middle of the medieval village.  The village is surrounded by a high wall. In the wall there are 8 gateways.  When you enter the city, the route you are on leads to the Productivitree. It becomes one the 8 essential roots of the Productivitree.

There are  8 ways to the Productivitree:

  • The Way of Mindset
  • The Way of Clarity
  • The Way of Alignment
  • The Way of Slowing Down To Speed up
  • The Way of Focus
  • The Way of Adaptability
  • The Way of Finishing What You Start
  • The Way of Learning and Improving

8 Ways to optimize your productivity.

To have less sweat and enjoy more sweet.

My late friend and associate Jerry Fletcher always said that “High performance is when you move from your sweat spot to yur sweet spot.”
