Publisher's Summary

The revolutionary productivity system trusted by more than 25,000 professionals. Get more done and get your life back.  

Many professionals work as many as 70 hours a week, leaving little time for rest, exercise, family, and friends. Work is invading their personal life. The common understanding of productivity has failed these professionals. 

Most think productivity is just about getting more done at a faster speed. But it's not. Productivity is about getting the right things done.  

New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt has created a total productivity system that's much more than endless box checking. Proven by more than 25,000 professionals, this system helps overwhelmed leaders achieve what matters most so they can succeed at both work and life.   

In his latest audiobook, Free to Focus, you'll discover how to:

  • Redefine your work so it works for you

  • Cut out the nonessentials 
  • Eliminate interruptions and distractions 
  • Set boundaries that protect your focus and drive results 
  • Leverage your time and energy for maximum productivity 
  • Build momentum for a lifetime of success  

In Free to Focus, you'll learn the three-step system to achieve more while doing less.

A solid book but not exceptionally original


I used to have a to-do list with several hundred items on it. It’s not that my life was so busy and important that I needed to have several hundred items on it, only that my dreams and ambitions seemed to multiply faster than I could complete them.

I still have the list, I just don’t look at it that much anymore. Weirdly one of the reasons I cut my list down to my top 2 or 3 items was partly due to Michael Hyatts podcast, which I later cut out of my life as well in an attempt to stay more focused.

I don’t listen to as many podcasts as I used to because I feel like a lot of them are just distractions, or that all they did was introduce me to more distractions, but I still have time for books and since I’m trying to be more focused and less diffuse, I thought a book about how to focus would be a good choice. And it was. I had just heard it all before.

If you’ve never read a book about productivity though, this as good a place to start as any, and maybe even better because it may stop you from creating a giant to-do list in the first place.

Great primer, but redundant

This book is a great primer into the world of Michael Hyatt and his productivity methodology. However, readers and followers of Hyatt will already be familiar with much of this book—to the point that you’ll be wondering what new content may exist. Sadly, new content is sparse. Disappointing for such a brilliant and influential force in this space.

Best Traction on Holistic Focus

This book is not just a research project delivering great promise. This is the bearing of Michael's heart describing how he moved beyond vanity metrics of success to true success in life.

Then the book takes it even farther teaching principles that were refined through years of passing these concepts on to others. Trials bring experience. When we get wisdom and understanding as part of that experience we also gain something else in our future vision, hope. In this book Michael passes that hope to any who care to take it.

more practical and useful than I expected

I thought it would be yet another motivational junk book from a self-proclaimed productivity guru. but I read Michael Hyatt's the Platform, liked it, and thought I would give this one a try. I was not disappointed. The book turned out to be very practical. highly recommend.

Absolutely wonderful content

The content presented in this book is superb. The topics are comprehensive and well researched. The author does an excellent job of putting together details from a wide variety of domains and yet presents the information in an elegant, easy to follow manner. I am going to make this required reading for my management team!

Is a workbook but the link provided doesn't exist?

I listened over and over to the link provided for the exercise and tried every alternative that came to my mind but freetofocus.com/tools, where the resources should be, doesn't seem to exist. The writer clearly states is useless to go ahead with the book without completing the exercises ...
Not sure how to get help too!
