Screencasts vs. Written Processes

By | News, Posts | No Comments

    One of the unique concepts that I am most proud of is “The Manual of You”. This manual is a series of exercises that takes a granular look at the processes we all go through on a regular basis and analyzes the steps required to complete those processes. Whether that process is paying a bill, posting a new podcast to your blog, or even making your lunch, everything you do can be broken down into descriptive steps.   We have two systems in our brain: the automatic, energy saving system, and the more analytical, higher-level thinking system.

After going through his whole story for what felt like hours, his friend listened quietly and finally said, “Are you exercising every day?” Hal was irritated at the question, and thought his friend might have been acting callously, or simply hadn’t really listened…

How to Use Rational Procrastination To Move Tasks Forward

By | News | No Comments

Rational Procrastination??? Sounds like a total contradiction right? Well, it’s a concept I’ve come up with to help you make progress on the projects that you just can’t seem to get any momentum on. First, you have to understand the two components. I had a great podcast interview with Tim Pychyl of where he explained how procrastination is an emotional experience where we basically say we don’t feel like doing something and thus put it off. The problem of course is that things need to get done, whether we feel like doing it or not. Your home needs to be kept clean,…
