Our phones, tablets, and computers are full of features to help us be more productive. These devices are updated all the time, as if through magic right before our eyes, but most people don't know the treasure troves of tools that actually exist beneath their noses.
Years ago, I took a road trip with my oldest friend. We didn't even have a GPS, or a smartphone, and I look at that trip as one of my fondest memories. Don't let the overactivity of the modern age rob your life of the joys simple living can give you.
I have trained myself over the years to be on the lookout for sharks disguised as dolphins. These are people who act like they're cool with you and your life, but spend more energy trying to make you like them than help you succeed.
One of the main reasons we’re not getting anything done is the fact that we have too much to get done. One of the ways I stay productive is by doing less. It’s ironic, but you’d be surprised how much more you can accomplish when you’re doing less. I know…..mind blown.

Do you ever feel like you've got mad skills ready to burst out of you at your seams, but there's just no place to use them? Guess what? It's never too late to put your skills and passions to work. You just need to find a place to use them.
People are very hard on folks who decide to take medication, eat extreme diets, or decide to take the “easy road.” I’m here to tell everyone that it’s OK to make decisions that enable you to live a better life. Life is too short to struggle when you don’t need to struggle.
Silja Litvin, my new friend from London, created an awesome new app called Equoo. This app is designed to teach your all about what makes us tick psychologically, and it is literally a game changer. Your relationships will be better across the board if you dig into this app and take its narrative driven advice seriously.
I want you to look back on the good and the bad of this past summer, and celebrate both. Celebrate the bad times that you muscled through, and the good times that you can't wait to have again next year.
