The Sweet Setup on the BookArc

Yup it looks cool but this stood out to me: At this point, I’m not sure if I’m more productive using only one display while working at home, but I’m certainly not less productive. Josh uses multiple monitors at work and a single at home citing its so easy to “just check” stuff with all […]

On the Benefits of Touch for Adults and Kids

I knew about the baby stuff, but not the benefits for adults. An initial small study, published in the journal Pediatrics in 1986, showed that just 10 days of “body stroking and passive movements of the limbs” for less than an hour led babies to grow 47 percent faster. They averaged fewer days in the […]

Bullet Journal Goals and Sprints

I feel like I need to review this section of The Bullet Journal Method again, luckily it’s on my shelf. The biggest issue I’ve had with a notebook first (sometimes only) method is tracking bigger projects. I feel like I want to step back and really see everything that’s going on in a week. Not […]

Digitally Minimal Android Phone

Well I had minor surgery yesterday so I’m probably laying in bed or on the couch right now reading. No running for me for at least a week, maybe two. Content should go out next week as normal. If you’ve found my content helpful then new in 2019 I’ve opened up a Patreon page. You […]

Why Do we Hate Networking Events?

I follow Ali on YouTube, but haven’t tried out the podcast until today. I particularly enjoyed their thoughts on having friends over from different backgrounds so that you mix up who people know. The idea of social optionality is also interesting.

Simple Tips for Organizing a Networking Event

Networking is an essential part of business. However, it’s not always easy to find the right networking event for you and your business. If you can’t find something suitable, maybe it’s time take a cue from Benjamin Franklin and start the group you’ve been looking for? Creating your own networking event doesn’t have to be […]

Do You Know Where Good Ideas Come From

I think that a question that is asked often by anyone with a bit of drive is, how on earth do you come up with a good idea? How did Charles Darwin, or Steve Jobs, or Hedy Lamarr come up with the ground breaking ideas and technology that they are credited with. This question is […]
