Do a Full Day’s Work in 90 Minutes

Monday, December 29th, 2014

The typical American office worker only does about 90 minutes of real work per workday. The rest of each workday is largely spent on distractions like reading the news, web surfing, socializing with coworkers, snacking, taking coffee breaks, shuffling papers around, processing irrelevant emails, needless delay tactics, playing games, and daydreaming. Moreover, American office workers are among the […]

Stimulation

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Finding the right level of stimulation for your work and relationships is one of life’s key challenges. Sometimes we procrastinate on tasks and check out from relationships because the overall stimulation level isn’t a good match for our preferences. Some situations are under-stimulating, causing us to feel bored and listless. Other situations are over-stimulating, causing us to feel stressed or […]

130 Days Off Per Year

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Can you summon the self-awareness to recognize when you’re putting in 8+ hours at your desk, but you only get 1-2 hours of REAL, meaningful, focused work done? How many days do you need to have like that before accepting that it’s time for a serious reset of your motivation, drive, and focus? What’s the solution? In […]

Selecting Projects Wisely

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Sometimes people dive into new projects because they really want to make some money or to “get something going.” They put pressure on themselves to start a project mainly for the sake of trying to create some forward momentum. While forward momentum can be a beautiful thing, I would actually recommend against this approach. Usually when […]

For the upcoming Conscious Life Workshop, the key goal is to help you achieve a sustainable income of $10,000 per month (or more) AND do work you enjoy AND enjoy plenty of lifestyle freedom. Some people wonder about this $10K per month figure. How could it be possible for them, especially when no one in their line of […]

Social Media, You Got Dumped

Monday, July 7th, 2014

After careful consideration I’ve decided to opt out of participating in external social media sites. I no longer have active accounts with Twitter, Google+, Facebook, or YouTube. They’ve all been closed, deleted, or otherwise nuked. Yesterday I had tens of thousands of followers on those services. Now I have zero. To opt out even more […]

What’s Your Favorite Way to Earn Money?

Friday, June 27th, 2014

One thing that a lot of employee-minded people suffer from is opportunity blindness. They’re surrounded by fun and expansive ways to earn plenty of money, but they have a hard time seeing those opportunities. They’ve been socially conditioned to think that getting a job is the one and only way to earn money for them. […]
