Hacking Reality: Subjective Objectivity

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

As my 30-day subjective reality experiment concluded last month, I shifted to a different mode of living. I finally got used to seeing the world through a dream lens. It was seriously challenging to hold that perspective at first, but after a few weeks, my subconscious took over, and I no longer had to consciously […]

How to Fall in Love with Procrastination

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Many time management experts label procrastination in strictly negative terms such as “the thief of time.” But is procrastination always such a negative experience? Is there a positive side to procrastination, one that may even encourage you to procrastinate more often? What if you could see procrastination from a more empowering perspective? What if you […]

How to Raise Your Hourly Rate

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

If you work as an independent professional or employee whereby you get paid by the hour, then your income depends heavily on your hourly rate. So obviously if you can raise your hourly rate, you can earn more money without working longer hours. But when does it make sense to raise your hourly rate? How […]

The Past DOES Equal the Future

Monday, April 19th, 2010

The past does not equal the future is a favorite saying of Tony Robbins. Unfortunately he’s dead wrong. I can understand Tony’s intent in making such a statement. Sure it’s part of his overall sales pitch, but essentially he’s telling people that they have the power to break from the past and use their power […]

Master Your Workday Now

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

I recently had the privilege of reading the book Master Your Workday Now! by Michael Linenberger. I daresay this is the best book on workflow management I’ve ever read — and I’ve read a LOT of books on that subject. The book just came out this week, and last I checked it was in the […]

One Week On, One Week Off

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

If you’d like to boost your productivity far beyond the results you get with the 9-to-5 grind, an interesting alternative work schedule to consider is the One Week On, One Week Off approach. Instead of working week after week, you alternate between one intensive work week followed by one vacation/personal week. This method isn’t very […]

How You Give Your Power Away

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

One of the themes that repeatedly came up at the last Conscious Growth Workshop was the problem of giving your power away. Instead of focusing on your true desires, you erect false structures in front of your desires and then feed your power to those structures as a delay tactic. Here are some typical scenarios […]
