Most productivity books offer something no one really wants: words, words and more words (and few to no pictures). That's no fun - and not very productive.
Doing to Done is all about simplified, illustrated, easy-to-implement techniques that help you decrease overwhelm and turn chaos into clarity.
Built for Results
Doing to Done is a better way to be the best. This book will teach you how to cultivate quick wins that lead to big-time impacts in all areas of your life.
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.

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.COO of SnowCloud.io
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 keep this book desk side as a quick remember and occasional reference to keep myself productive. It's quick, easy read, which much you can remember thanks to well done concise writing with fun visuals. This book stands out in a world with many productivity options that span hundreds of pages, long paragraphs, and maybe some data tables. Nothing wrong with them, I just find this approach fresh and more enjoyable. I would even say it compounds on top of a productivity foundation you may already have.

I've been a student of personal productivity for decades. I had been hopeful that DTD would reveal some hacks or concepts I'd yet to consider. Sadly that was not the case such that I did not feel it warranted me sharing to my network or using going forward.
The book is brilliant in its simplicity and intention but when you combine it with Mike's online self guided course and teaching then you are going whole new level. This book was referred to me from a sales consultant friend of mine and wow I was amazed at how much easy to implement takeaway value it provided.
I am only half way through, but I had the most positive, productive day I’ve had in months thanks to this book! I can’t wait to get all the way through! I love the super easy to read format!
I've read and used bits and pieces of countless productivity books but none of the techniques really stick. I would previously feel a sense of dread when I thought "I should re-read book xyz to refresh my productivity technique, things aren't working right now". But Doing To Done was different. It was a joy to read and easy to reference back. The Doing To Done masterclass really helped put the techniques into action with a really thoughtful use of Todoist. I finally feel I have a "trusted system" that has historically alluded me!
