By | News, Posts | 2 Comments

Not long ago, I was reading an article from Chris Guillebeau in which he draws a bold conclusion: Productive people never have free-time. That statement gave me pause and – after reflecting upon it in detail – I came to my own bold conclusion: Chris is right.

Using for Goal Setting

By | Posts | No Comments

    Less Doing More Living – BLOG Making Micro-Goals Matter When it comes to goal-setting, people tend to set goals that are simply too grandiose or long-term.

By | Guest Posts, News, Posts | No Comments

  Back when I was fat, I’d wake up feeling noticeably weaker and slower on some days than others. I figured these were symptoms of being overweight, but I didn’t understand why they were so much worse from day to day.
