Productivity expert, entrepreneur, creator, and bestselling author Ali Abdaal visits Google to discuss his book “Feel-Good Productivity: How to Do More of What Matters to You.” We often think that productivity is all about hard work, and that the road to success is lined with endless frustration and toil. But what if there’s another way?

In this book, Ali reveals how the science of feel-good productivity can transform your life. He introduces the three hidden 'energizers' that underpin enjoyable productivity, the three 'blockers' we must overcome to beat procrastination, and the three 'sustainers' that prevent burnout and help us achieve lasting fulfillment. 

Ali Abdaal started his creator journey in 2017 and has since amassed a following of over 7 million people across various platforms and newsletters, and leads a company with over 15 employees. While working as a doctor in the UK's National Health Service, Ali started to document his journey towards living a healthier, happier, more productive life on his YouTube channel and other social media platforms. To date, Ali’s evidence-based videos, podcasts and articles sharing insights into the human mind have reached hundreds of millions of people all around the world.
