How I Stay Productive - Nat Eliason
Each month, I’ll pick three goals to focus on. These are the goals I think will make the biggest impact in my life, that I’ll be happiest if I get done this month. They’re also the things I think I’ll be unlikely to do if I don’t set a specific goal for them. I’ll always pull them from my annual goals and their next steps, to make sure that I’m staying on track for the bigger goals I’m aiming towards.

The P.A.R.A. Method: A Universal System for Organizing Digital Information - Praxis
Projects require you to be laser-focused, to ruthlessly drive toward an outcome, to smash through or circumvent obstacles, to ignore distractions (i.e. people). Areas, on the other hand, require mindfulness, balance, flow, and human connection. This is the realm of habits, routines, rituals, and intentional communities. Areas require introspection and self-awareness, because determining whether or not you are meeting your standard is an intuitive exercise, not an analytical one.

The Secret to My Productivity + Thoughts on Luxury & Privilege
None of the above is meant to argue that practice, hard work, and diligence is absent from the equation, but that these other factors aren’t talked about nearly often enough. I’ve been asked for so long, and so often, about the “secret” to my productivity and success; there’s an implicit assumption that it’s all a result of a well-honed and practiced method. It’s not. A great deal of my work life has been unstructured and undisciplined (though not without vision and purpose). It’s just that I’ve been able to spend nearly 20 years focusing on my work to the exclusion of nearly all else. How many other people have that luxury?

How to Protect Your Time Without Alienating Your Network
Instead of responding to emails one at a time, Scoble asks his interlocutors to post their questions on Quora, so that others can see and benefit from his responses. I won’t use Quora, but I’ll ask the student to email me his question, I’ll respond back electronically, and will later turn it into a blog post. Similarly, instead of one-on-one coffees, I’ll often organize dinners to bring together interesting groups of people who could also benefit from knowing one another.

Sheryl Sandberg Leaves Work at 5:30 Every Day And You Should Too
Many of us know the stigma against going home early all too well, especially in competitive work environments in which many judge work ethic by the number of hours spent in the office. There should never be any shame associated with heading home before 6 p.m. to eat dinner with ones children and spouse, and Sandberg is sending a much-needed message to parents everywhere that its OK to leave work before dark for family time, especially since research has shown that children are healthier, happier and better performing students when they eat with their families.

Do It Right The First Time
"Cherish time, your most valuable resource. You can never make up the time you lose. It's the most important value for any productive happy individual and is the only limitation to all accomplishment. To waste time is to waste your life. The most important choices you'll ever make are how you use your time."

For all of us, no matter how much we want to take on everything that comes our way, eventually something has to give. We can either take control and choose what gets cut, or we can find out the hard way through experience as to what part of our lives ends up suffering.

Make the choice. Reduce capacity. Do fewer things well rather than a lot of things half-heartedly. Eliminate the demand on your already strained systems, and give more focus and attention to the priority projects in your life that will make the biggest difference.

Improve Your Life
The Fastest Way to Improve Your Life

The answer to getting up earlier is to do it one minute at a time. If you set your alarm clock for 7:00am each morning, then tomorrow you must set it for 6:59am. And each day for the next fifteen days youll set it one minute earlier. Soon you youll be acclimatized to getting up fifteen minutes earlier and youll discover the power of this magic time.

Invest one minute longer in creating healthy meals for your family rather than spending your time on the Internet, watching television, or following a political campaign over which you have no control. Do this for fifteen to twenty days in a row and your family will be eating healthier, spending more time together, having more energy, and perhaps losing more weight.

While we live one day at a time, our opportunity to improve our lives truly comes down to how we spend each minute.

Make your life better faster than ever by committing to making every minute count, starting today.

Are You Using Up Your Life in Service of Your Business?
Id take a business generating $400,000 a year working 3 hours a day over a business generating $1,000,000 per year working 19 hours per day.

Working 19 hours a day sounds like a terrible way to live. (If you can even call that living.)

By having a clear picture of your return on each unit of time you invest in your business, you know whether youre getting somewhere or if youre just stuck in a rat race.

Charging For Your Time is a Dead End
