Updated as of March 2020 to include video and 4, 3, 2 productivity hack. When it comes to wasting time in front of a computer, I’m a triple black belt. Over the last 10 years of working for myself, I’ve wasted not just hours or even days in front of a computer, but weeks, if […]

Here are some of our favorite posts on productivity:
Two years ago, I started doing something that I’d previously shunned. I think it probably goes back to my days of corporate finance when you’d have to spend two hours filling these out and then have an awkward meeting with your boss that really never mattered. It wasn’t until I started following people like Taylor […]
Here’s a reality of life: we all get stuck in a rut occasionally. Sometimes the ruts are deeper than others. Sometimes they take longer to climb out of. But no matter where you are in life, how successful you are, or how great things seem on the surface, we all have our moments. Those moments where nothing […]
Being an entrepreneur is a constant struggle. I’ve never met a single true entrepreneur who wasn’t always looking for the next big thing. It doesn’t matter how little free time they have, or what the state is of their current projects, they are always open to new possibilities. This can be both a good and […]
Last fall my wife Tate and I took a 2 month Sabbatical around the world. We did all sorts of bucket list things (like hike in the Dolomites, attend Oktoberfest in Munich, and volunteer at a panda reserve. Yes, really. A panda reserve. Out in the middle of nowhere, in mainland China. Insert, a ridiculously […]
Do you struggle with productivity? Of course, you do. All of us do, we’re just all at varying stages in our battle. For me, every night when I close my laptop I ask myself, “did I do as much as I’d planned on doing today?” And if the answer is no, I’ll beat myself up […]

But as the months (and let’s face it, years have progressed) little to no progress has been made. Trust me, I’m qualified to talk about this because often my […]
I first wrote this post way back in 2014. At the time, I struggled to get through two weeks of waking up at 6am every day. Well, what a difference a few years make, now my 6am wake up is pretty much standard. I want to share how I got started on the road to […]
The hardest thing a freelancer can do is take action. I’m talking real action. Not doing research, not reading your emails or checking Facebook. With rare exceptions, none of that adds up to anything. In fact, it’s a great way to procrastinate while convincing yourself that you are taking action. Nope, I mean behind in your […]
When you’re groggy, half asleep and stumbling down the stairs at 5 am, desperately trying to find the coffeemaker, often the only thing going through your mind is: “why the heck am I doing this??” Or maybe you’re so far removed from being a morning person, that you’ve never actually experienced the joys of being […]
