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
Mike's methods have helped me manage a global business with significant results, while also parenting, taking care of elderly parents, coaching high school and recreational sports. Mike’s proven methods are exceptional, and I am proud to call him my coach.Chief Growth Officer at Snow Partners
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
The system was simple to understand and better - it’s easy to put into action, helping bring clarity to thought and delivering quick results. My son, who I took the workshop with, REALLY loves the brain sweep and has already built a habit around it!
Doing to Done is the perfect system for anyone trying to calm the crazy party in your brain so you can focus more energy on getting sh*t done!
I wouldn't consider myself an unorganized person, but I definitely make things too complicated for myself and often feel scattered . Tasks usually seem to daisy chain in terms of starting one task, then remembering I need to do something else, and before you know it, I haven't completed my first task! I just read "Doing to Done" and am implementing the systems in conjunction with Todoist, and I'm loving it. The structure presented of Role-Project-Task is very simple, helpful, and easy for my brain to grasp. I'm still learning some of the nuance, but am in the process of moving my confusing systems and methods into the Doing to Done methodology. Love the book, and a great way to end my 2023, and launch into 2024!
Simple but very powerful productivity methodl! Very practical hands-on approach. If you are stuck with GTD complexity, DTD is new paradigm. Thank you Mike for your book to help us navigate through different roles, project and next actions with much more clarity and better perspectivity. Congrats!
This simple strategy to make great strides in moving forward on everything is amazing. I am using the skills learned from this book to organize my plan of attack. With consistency I will catch up with what is important in my life and move forward. A solution for anyone who is struggling to keep up.
I loved this book - the balance of words and illustrations made a potentially dense and complex topic extremely approachable. I've had the opportunity to work with Mike 1 on 1 and he is the best out there. Could not recommend this book more!
