A Proven System That Works
Trusted by CEOs of major corporations, creative leaders, athletes and more, the Doing to Done method has been refined for twenty years to create a productivity system, that's actually... well, productive.
Mike Williams is a speaker, author, executive, and coach who helps leaders obtain small wins with a big impact on their lives and businesses. He gives people the actionable tools to succeed on their terms with less effort AND be at the top of their game in all areas of life.
Through his leadership roles with General Electric, The David Allen Company, and Zappos, Mike kept noticing that people were desperate for a better path to productivity to help them fight digital distractions, mind clutter, and wasteful uses of their time. But the only resources available involved complex approaches, reading thick self-help books, or participating in boring seminars. He knew a better way existed—one rooted in simplicity and realism. So in his pursuit, he spent two decades working with thousands of people across different industries--from rocket scientists to students to nonprofit organizations.
Today, Mike assists clients using an effective coaching methodology that’s far from complicated. He also used what works to create Doing to Done—Productivity Made Simple, Illustrated for Busy People Like Us, a visually engaging book about quick wins with significant impacts. Bringing a bit of Southern California energy to his work, he firmly believes that managing stress through better productivity shouldn’t be so stressful.
This book is brilliant. The art is amazing. I want to buy copies for
everyone in my company.COO of Instrumart
I’ve practiced some amazing productivity methodologies, and most have three problems: too complex, too wordy, and lame AF. Doing to Done works. It’s simple, visual, fun, and engaging. His system will change your life and help you be the best version of YOU, if you let it.CEO of goodr
I love the style – between the graphics and the tone – just gorgeous. Simple, but not, too – and supported with excellent, approachable art.CEO of The Association for Talent Development
I thoroughly enjoyed Doing to Done and the shift in my mindset it created for me in the week since I finished my first read of it. The connection between roles & projects was a huge unlock for me and a way to integrate the system across all aspects of my life. I'm also finding more joy in making progress moving towards an outcome vs. viewing the things on my list as burdens I need to take care of. I truly want to say thank you, it's helped instill a sense of confidence in my ability to handle the additional responsibilities about to come my way with a new baby expected any day now.
Social media, texting and email was taking over my life. I’d tried EVERYTHING to spend less time with my phone but I never truly wanted to. Along with this, came my messy house and indecisiveness regarding what to do each day. This fun, engaging book gave me a structure that is doable and specific enough for me to follow without resistance. I am discovering I have so much more time for quality activities, a neater home and a solid plan for each day! I even read a whole book which hasn’t happened in awhile. I’d recommend this book to anyone who thinks they’ve tried everything.
After ten plus years of marriage, I became a single, first-time mother, navigating life in a new unfamiliar state. I gave up trying to get things “Done" altogether. Then I answered the question “What’s On Your Mind?” and discovered my overwhelm. What a wake-up call! Now, I cultivate little wins that build me back up internally. Incredibly grateful - Highly recommend you put an end to the needless suffering ASAP by getting this book!
Did you know we don’t need to mangle our brains trying to follow 400 complicated steps in order to achieve success? Doing to Done broke down how take my swirl of never-ending to do lists and helped me create an achievable plan of action. It taught me how to build consistent small wins which resulted in feeling actually accomplished. It showed me how to tackle my overwhelm so I can embrace more ease. With the simple layout, awesome graphics, and Mike as our biggest supporter all of us can easily create our own definition of a productive successful life. Highly recommend you make your next action buying Doing to Done.
I read the book in just a couple of sittings, and began applying practices immediately. If you’re familiar with GTD, some of the concepts will feel familiar, but what this book does is simplifies things and brings things down to an execution level with “Work Beats”. This is very practical and it has been very helpful to me so far!
