hustle hard work

Toward the end of 2015, I decided to try again in 2016 to start my own venture and to forge my own path. Originally, I planned to write a blog post each day (or every other day) chronicling the long, hard and lonely road, especially since information about the beginning of the journey is hard …

Once again, I’m doing another one of these big fat to-do lists so that I can keep track of myself and not forget a whole bunch of little things. I’m already losing track of the days of the week because my sleep schedule is completely off, so the fewer things I have to keep track …

I’ve barely done anything today, so I really need to do something to get me started and to make me productive. I understand that it’s a Sunday and that I don’t have to be productive, but if I don’t get a few things done then all those things will be put off until tomorrow. I …

Inferno of Productivity: How I Turned My Task List into a Game

inferno of productivity

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned from my business coach is to be specific, but to keep things simple also. My coach noted that I had a tendency to overwhelm myself by making things too complicated, by not focusing on the little steps that need to be taken to achieve the bigger picture. It’s …
