Meetings—You’re Doing Them Wrong

By | News, Posts | One Comment

Meetings are the bane of my existence. It’s not that I’m not diametrically opposed to meetings. Under the right circumstances and executed under the proper guidelines, meetings can be a great expenditure of time… …The problem is, most meetings—I’m willing to say 95% them—are not held under the right circumstances nor are executed under the proper guidelines. The average meeting is horrifically inefficient. It involves too many people, too many touchpoints, too many questions, and—most importantly—too much time. No meeting, no matter the significance, should take longer than 30 minutes. I don’t care if it’s about your business, your mortgage,…

Asynchronous Communication and You

By | News, Posts | No Comments

Asynchronous communication. For many of you, it’s an unfamiliar term. Put simply, it is the opposite of synchronous communication. It is communication on your own time and on your own terms, freed from the constraints of immediacy. Communication is synchronous when information is exchanged at the same time—one person speaks, while another listens and reacts accordingly in real-time—immediate feedback is required. What started as an isolated illness during the early 2000s, has become a pandemic in less than 20 years. Over the past decade, we’ve been conditioned to accept synchronous communication without exception. It is why many of us feel…

6 Simple Ways to Transform Daily Activity into Content

By | News, Posts | No Comments

The struggle for fresh, creative content has long been real but I’m starting to think it doesn’t have to be. What I mean is, why are we racking our brains to create interesting blogs or unique infographics when so much of what we do on a daily basis can be converted into content with a few minor tweaks? Think about it… How many things do you do on a daily, or every-other-day basis that could be manipulated into content with relative ease? Probably a lot. If not a lot, certainly a few. You are doing things every day (tasks, chores,…

5 Quick Ways to Hack a Gym

By | News, Posts | No Comments

Hacking is a part of everything we do at Less Doing. We hack our bodies, we hack technologies, and we have the world around us so we can live more optimized lives. It is in that spirit that I give you 5 Ways to Hack a Gym. The Hail Mary Hotel Sitting in the confines of a cramped airplane in a restrictive, uncomfortable seat can make the body look and feel a little funky—especially if your flight pushes beyond two hours. Normally, addressing this “funk” isn’t an issue—just go to the hotel and rinse off when you land. But what…

Email Zero

Email Zero

By | News, Posts | No 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. And while Inbox Zero is still a valuable maxim and practice, I’m starting to wonder if it’s becoming a little outdated. Well, not necessarily Inbox Zero, but rather email itself. “Ari, what are you talking about?” asked everyone reading the blog. Let me tell you… What would you do if you couldn’t email at all? Don’t scoff at the question and dismiss the idea. When it comes to business…

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.

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 | No 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…
