Email Zero

By | News, Posts | 6 Comments

One of the foundational lessons of Less Doing is the idea of “Inbox Zero”—where we structure our email inbox to be a seamless, consolidated, and chaos-free source of information and communication.

Don’t scoff at the question and dismiss the idea. When it comes to business…

Your Peak Time

By | News, Posts | 4 Comments

Finding Your Peak Time Some days you have it. Some days you don’t. That “it” can be focus, strength, energy, endurance—you name it. But what if, in actuality, we always have “it,” we just look for “it” at the wrong time? What if – by a simple, reliable, at home test – you can determine your “peak” time of day? The time of day when your entire body and mind are aligned for optimal performance… Sound too good to be true? Well (and you can probably guess where I’m going here) it’s NOT!

Decrease Your Tech to Increase Your Brain

By | News, Posts | 3 Comments

When I’m practicing and preaching the principles of Less Doing, I place great emphasis on the use of new and emerging technologies. …Maybe too much. Technology is great and the rewards of human innovation are too many to name here, but, many of us – myself included – can be guilty of spending too much time with the tech that has so dramatically improved our lives. Do we really need to take our laptops everywhere? Does in-flight WiFi actually matter on a trip from New York to LA? Will our productivity truly tank if we unplug for the five or…

Don’t Do It Now, Do It Right Now

By | News, Posts | 2 Comments

There has been a lot of talk about the limited supply of willpower that we have. Decision fatigue is quite literally the exhaustion we feel at the end of the day after making hundreds or even thousands of decisions. Everything from what the new ad campaign for your companies big product will be to whether you should have a granny smith or red delicious apple at lunch. Willpower is not endless and we eventually run out of steam. Incidentally it’s also one of the reasons that running on a treadmill is so difficult for many people because there is so…
