By | News, Posts | 12 Comments

My book, Less Doing, More Living: Make Everything in Life Easier pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The book will be released on April 3rd, 2014. This has been a long time in the making and I am so excited to be able to present this work to the world. “Less is more”—or, more specifically, the less you have to do, the more life you have to live.

Ideas like this one come to me usually once per month and it’s always very exciting. After the huge success of The Human Autoresponder just a week ago I’m so thrilled to have worked on another awesome automation so soon. I love automating automations and outsourcing outsourced resources and this is a wonderful example. One of the great things about self tracking is when you can start to see the correlations between inputs and outputs. How does what I eat now effect my sleep tonight? How does what I wear to this meeting effect the outcome? How does my body…

Don’t Try To Prioritize, Work On Your Timing

I’ve discussed at length how you should get rid of your to do list immediately and the harmful effects of the Zeigarnik Effect which is that voice in our subconscious that nags at us to finish the unfinished.

Simply figuring out which tasks are more important than others doesn’t change…

The Problem I’m going to let you in on a little secret, your to do lists are making you inefficient, stressed out, and fat…ok maybe not fat but the other two for sure. But how can this be you ask, as you look over your well organized GTD to do list on your iPad or the whiteboard on the wall with different lists of color coded things that you have today, tomorrow, next week, and every second in between? Tasks and projects have timing associated with them. They are either due on a certain date, or there are milestones along…

How can this possibly be efficient you say? Each calendar is related to a very specific aspect of my life. I have my main calendar and then I have several others that usually only have a few events in them but are exteremly useful nonetheless. To create a new calendar of your own, just follow these steps: Click the drop-down arrow to the right of My calendars Select Create new calendar Enter…
