Google’s Executive Productivity Advisor offers insights on how to make the new way of work work for you, providing actionable steps to optimize your productivity, accomplish more, prevent burnout, and cultivate a harmonious work-life balance.
Every day, tens of thousands of Google employees, from executives to interns, rely on Laura Mae Martin’s tips and best practices for how to make the most of their time. Now, with Uptime, Laura brings her unique approach to productivity and wellbeing to anyone who wants to be more effective and experience “calm accomplishment” whether at work, at school, or in their own personal lives.
Laura began her Google career in sales, but quickly carved out a niche for herself as a productivity expert. For more than a decade, she’s been coaching Google executives and employees on how to achieve a state of “productivity Zen” — a holistic approach to conquering everything from the avalanche of emails in their inboxes to becoming the master of their own calendars and running excellent meetings. Her strategies have been widely adopted from entry level employees looking to amplify their individual impact to top executives working across global teams.
As many of us have moved to a hybrid environment blending work and home, managing our time efficiently and remaining productive is more important than ever. In Uptime, Laura shows us how to thrive no matter where you’re working with an approach she calls “calm accomplishment,” a focus on your priorities with good systems, routines, and tactics in place.
Uptime explains how to make technology work for you and make “productive Zen” your new normal. It’s a blueprint for operating at the highest levels of productivity while enhancing your own personal wellbeing.
