Author Interview The Productivity Book

Standard

How long have you been writing?

I always wrote, for my school magazine, in my various jobs and privately, writing is a way of working through personal findings.

What was the most challenging part about writing The Productivity Book?

For me the selection of content is the hardest, there is so much good stuff to write about, especially with interviewees as creative as these in the book.

What do you enjoy the most about being an author? 

Writing you own lines is something magic, it gives you an enormous liberty and personal satisfaction. You have to live with deadlines if you work in a team, however pure writing is like being in a small world all for yourself.

Do you have any works in progress you’re working on?

Writing for me is a daily habit, so I do not need specific goals to make this happen. I wish I would have more time to work on some ideas I have in my mind about another book, this might have to wait a little.
