It was the fourth Periscope notification I’d received that day. “Derek Halpern is Live” He is one of my favorite bloggers, and I was cooking dinner, so I figured I’d tune in and see what he was up to. Turns out he was at a bar in NYC with a couple other friends of mine, […]

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 […]
Do you ever feel like everyone else is having more success than you are? That’s one of the worst feelings in the world. It can be jealousy, perceived failure, and frustration all rolled up into one tangled ball of confusion in your mind. What am I doing wrong? Why am I not seeing more success implementing […]
Becoming a remote worker can be one of the most liberating experiences in the world. That being said, whether you’re employed or self-employed, becoming a remote worker requires that you develop the skill of managing your own productivity.

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 […]

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 […]
