About

My name is Zi Yuan and I created this website.

My girlfriend (hand pictured) does the visuals on this website while I do the writing.

I have a day job. But probably just like you that’s reading this, I’m always looking for things I can do to serve and help more people. Automatic Productivity happens to be one of those projects.

A little back story – some years back, I read a book by John Maxwell titled “Today Matters” and was so inspired by the words of John Maxwell when he said that “Success is determined in your daily agenda.” that I’ve determined to make my every day a masterpiece.

Since then, I have read various books to try and become more productive every day.

Unfortunately, despite having the tools and know-how to improve my productivity, I found that I was still unable to achieve the level of productivity that I wanted.

I still got distracted by my electronic devices. Some days, I even felt like I was being “used” by technology.

I realised that if I’m going to have any chance of leading a productive life, I will have to be willing to go through a life long process of correction and to wrestle with the lazy part of me for the rest of my life.

This site documents my journey as I explore different ways to make a productive life more and more automatic and second nature to me.

Automatic Productivity was created to serve those who are on the same journey as I am.
