- We gathered the best productivity insights from leaders like the head of the New York Stock Exchange, the CEO of a fast-growing restaurant conglomerate, and a venture capitalist opening doors for overlooked entrepreneurs.
- We named them some of our 100 People Transforming Business earlier this year for the ways they are setting the pace for their industries.
- The Productivity Project collects the techniques some of our "transformers" use to be efficient and successful, and this is a roundup of all our responses.

The bottom line is that there's no one-size-fits-all for success, and that extreme or unusual habits might work for some people, but they also might just be a grab for attention. That's why when Business Insider set out to build out a "Productivity Project," we wanted to get real-world insights from successful people without presenting them as miracle cures.
We reached out to nine of our "100 People Transforming Business" leaders shaking up their industries, and asked them for the habits they use each day to be effective and productive. These are simple techniques you can consider for your own life, and if you want to learn more, you can click the link in each slide.Read on for the full collection, and see if you find an exercise or habit that registers with you.
