  • How to decrease the stress in your life

    GTD for CIOs
    Michael Keithley
    12 Oct 2014 | 4:08 pm
    There is a reason David Allen’s first book is called “Getting Things Done – The Art of Stress Free Productivity.” The reason is because practicing GTD provides the most systematic and effective way to manage all the commitments you have to yourself and others. GTD’s key benefit is freedom – freedom from the sources of distraction and stress in your life. Not sure you believe me? Well there is scientific proof. Check out Getting Things Done: The Science behind Stress-Free Productivity by Francis Heylighen and Clément Vidal which goes into great detail on the science behind GTD…

    Everyone who tries to practice GTD at one time or another “falls off the bandwagon” and this is usually do to not doing a Weekly Review for a few weeks in a row. Subconsciously, your brain knows you do not have a complete list of your commitments in your trusted system so it not longer trusts your system. So, your brain starts trying to remember your commitments and as a result, it all comes off the rails. In GTD the vital first stage is Collection. Whenever we lose steam in our GTD flow, I feel like the most powerful collection exercise is what David Allen calls “the…

    The bestselling author Jim Collins gave the keynote address this morning at BoxWorks 2014 and he did a fantastic job of motivating and inspiring me. While he gave many worthwhile stories and concepts that are very relevant to CIOs and GTD practitioners, he ended with a simple question that I am going to incorporate into my trusted system. He asked the crowd how many people had to-do lists and everyone’s hands went up. Then he asked who had a “stop doing list” and very few hands went up. I am going to incorporate this into my Weekly Review because the “stop doing list” will…

    If you work in an office, you probably deal with interruptions. Now, not all interruptions are bad–the whole point of working in an office with other people is so that interactions can occur. However, it is possible to get into a situation where your entire day is spent dealing with interruptions. If you need to cut down on the interruptions in your life, consider some of these methods. 1. No seating If you have your own office, you might consider getting rid of the extra chairs.

    One thing I really like about open relationships is the ability to learn through experience more quickly. There are valuable lessons to be learned from a long-term monogamous relationship, but I found that my understanding of relationships quickly accelerated with a more open attitude towards connections. This is a predictable consequence of being able to learn from a greater variety of partners/teachers. As I see it, this is the same learning dynamic that you can gain by working for different companies, with different teams, and in different industries. You’ll surely learn some…

    The standard economic narrative as applied to human history tells us that barter came first, then money, and then credit and debt. In actuality we know that these concepts developed in the opposite order. Debt and credit pre-date the use of money by thousands of years. Money, in the form of early coins, came into usage largely as a way of keeping track of debts. And finally, the human use of barter systems actually arose after money, not before. Barter is employed by people who’ve already learned about money, and barter systems often use an equivalent of money to manage trades, such…

    I’ve been going through life feeling like a fraud. Every time a friend expressed awe over my seemingly perfect life, I gulped a big one and prayed they would never realize what my banal day-to-day existence was really like. When I was in school, at every exam I hoped that this wouldn’t be the first one I would fail miserably, starting a chain reaction of terrible grades, followed by flunking out of school and ending up on the street … or in jail. Every time I walked into an interview, there was a big part of me wondering if this time I would be able to outsmart them. Or if I…

    My husband and I have been considering buying a house but knew we had some hurdles that might make it unlikely. We contacted a loan officer who worked with us and gave us a positive opinion. We were absolutely thrilled and started looking at homes. It turned out, however, that he’d processed some incorrect information and we might not be able to get a loan this year after all. To say we were bummed out would be an understatement. Both of us tried to see the positive side but couldn’t seem to shake our disappointment. Neither of us wanted to talk about it, but finally I brought it up.

    All my life, I have relied on goal-setting to achieve results. Whether it came to school work, or even just taking time to hang out with my friends, I would plan the entire day out on outlook or use one of many goal setting techniques that I had learned. For example, I would stick a piece of paper on the ceiling of my bedroom with my goals written on it so it would be the first thing I saw when I woke up. And while all this helped me achieve great results, I noticed that I was always chasing the next big thing or the next goal I set for myself. I noticed that I never felt genuine contentment…

    To me, these two seemingly innocuous words, “some” and “day,” when put together are the most empty and depressing seven letters in our language. They are a synonym for “never” and “ain’t going to happen.” They are the lie we tell ourselves for a dream that we will never ever, in our lifetime, accomplish. It is belied in the tone of voice — faithless and empty — this combo of words usually parenthesized by a pair of audible sighs. Sigh, “Someday I’m going to …” Sigh. Once again we have deceived and cheated ourselves. Whatever happened to carpe diem? Seize the…

  • The Empty Container

    zenhabits
    27 Oct 2014 | 11:06 am
    By Leo Babauta Our lives get so complicated not overnight but gradually. The complications creep up on us, one insignificant step at a time. Today I order something online, tomorrow someone gives me a gift, then I get a free giveaway, then I decide I need some new tools. One item at a time, the clutter accumulates, because I’m not constantly purging the old. Today I say yes to an email request, tomorrow I say yes to a party invitation, then I get asked to a quick cup of coffee, then I decide to be a part of a project. One yes at a time, and soon my life is full and I don’t know…

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:34 am
    By Leo Babauta Lately I’ve been practicing asking myself a question: What if this moment were already perfect, everything you needed to be happy? This question is transformative. If I’m upset about something, I reconsider the moment and realize that I’m being small-minded about something, and that if I look at the entire moment, I can appreciate how much I have to be grateful for. Being mad at someone, I can see that actually this person is pretty wonderful and I should be grateful for having them in my life. Being upset at a situation, I can see how much I actually have,…
  • A Guide to Changing Self-Destructive Behaviors

    zenhabits
    22 Oct 2014 | 12:53 pm
    By Leo Babauta I have a reader who wants to make positive changes in her life, but can’t seem to stop certain behaviors. She writes: “I am consistently challenged with being mindful when buying food. What do you do when you are doing things that self-destructive and are not good and continue to do them. Is there an opportunity to change this?” This is such an excellent question, because I think we can all relate to this, can’t we? Who among us doesn’t do self-destructive behaviors from time to time, if not on a regular basis? I know that I’ve lived most of…

    By Leo Babauta My son, who is officially an adult in a matter of days, is facing a small crisis: the project he’s working on is not going well, and he’s ready to give up not only on the project but the career he was excited about not too long ago. I can feel the horrible mixture of discouragement, disappointment, difficulty, despair he must be feeling, because I’ve felt it too. I’ve felt this punch in the gut whenever projects or new ventures didn’t go well. I’ve given up, and felt the disappointment in myself. And I’ve pushed through this…

    By Leo Babauta If you’re deeply in debt, or your bad health habits have overwhelmed you, it’s likely that you don’t feel you can make a big impact on those problems anymore. I know when I was an overweight, sedentary smoker, who was so far in debt that I was constantly depressed … I felt hopeless. It feels like any attempt you make to change your situation will have no real impact. It feels like it’s not worth making an effort. One reader wrote: ‘I keep feeling like I don’t know what to do that will have a significant impact and that at this point,…

    Reader Vicki recently made the following comment on the post “Keeping things simple“: I really appreciate reading about options and choices when it comes to organizing. I tend to feel a little suspicious when I read that a specific way of organizing or a specific organizing tool is necessary. Vicki, I understand your concern. While there are some general principles that apply to most organizing situations (such as keeping similar items together), there are also many specific products and techniques for addressing almost any organizing challenge. The trick is to find the solutions…

    All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy! We all have snippets of good memories from our youth that occasionally bubble up and bring smiles to our faces. While watching some of the World Series the other night, I had a flash of memories from being a kid and getting ready for bed while listening to Kansas City Royals games on the AM radio. The pops and and crinkles of the AM broadcast mixed with the sound of the ball making contact with the bat were front and center in my mind and I’m pretty…

    I’m lucky enough to be able to work from home. Despite the battles with distraction, it’s a real luxury that I definitely appreciate. I’d wager that those of you who don’t complete your 9–5 at home still have a home office, computer room, command center, or some such other space that you use to attend to professional and personal management tasks. Although these home work spaces are helpful, it’s inevitable you’ll be ejected from it at some point. Flaky internet, construction right outside your window, your kid who needs to do research for a school project, your…
  • Going on a sentimental journey

    Jacki Hollywood Brown
    27 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    When uncluttering, it’s quite easy to make decisions on items for which we have no feelings or emotional attachment. But when we have feelings associated with physical items, it can be hard for our heart to let them go even though our lack of usable living space tells us we really need to say goodbye. There are different types of sentimental clutter (clutter referring to items you don’t necessarily want or have need for; not sentimental objects you value and/or regularly use). Some of the most common items are: Things handed down to us from previous generations Gifts received from…

    Since 1997, I’ve looked to learn by getting away from it all…So I can come back to more. Where Do You Do What You Do? When asked, “Why are you on the road so much?” I reply, “I go to learn, I go to experience, I go to see new things.” I can work on an American Airlines flight over the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean, set up a “temporary office” at a Starwood hotel, or review client notes at a locally-owned, community-focused coffee shop. In fact, I wrote the book Your Best Just Got Better while I was traveling across 4 different countries, visiting more than 15 cities, working…

    At the start of each day, you have a choice. You can work on the noise that shows up, as it shows up. Or, work on the signal, gaining momentum toward what you and the team has decided is the next goal. There’s no secret to being productive. If there was, your search would have uncovered it by now. No…In order to get things done, you have to sit down and, well, do them. The most important “resource” of them all - more than funding, more than time, and certainly more than the next release of your product/app/service - is focus.  While I was working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory…

    Sometime today, someone or something is going to distract you. Instead of wishing things were different, or hoping for the best, set yourself up for success.  Yes, set yourself up to focus on your Most Important Things! Have you set a goal to get more things done today? Are you hoping that you’ll be more productive today, and maybe even get home in time to have dinner with the family, or return to the hotel in time to get a workout in before dinner? Step back and reflect on the environment you work in and ask yourself, "Is this work-space designed to help me focus on the work I have to…

    Your way...Is it working for you? Do you have your own way? Recently, a journalist reached out after reading Your Best Just Got Better (chapter 1 here) and asked: “Do you have a list of “To Dos” that you you make sure to do every day?" I opened up my favorite application for “free-thinking” and wrote out a quick mind-map of the things that I know “if I do, my day is #Better.” So, here’s my list: Start the day w/ gratitude. Write a letter to a client, vendor, author, or other to let them know what what THEY do makes MY life better. Increase the heart rate, for at least 30…

    Barbara recently lost her husband of 45 years. “What am I going to do with all of his things”, she asked. Sometimes when a death is expected, a lot of sorting occurs before passing. People get the chance to go through their belongings and distribute possessions to family and friends. There is an opportunity to throw or donate items that are no longer useful, loved or needed. But often when death is sudden, a huge task is left to sort out possessions. This, coupled with the grieving of a loved one, can be most overwhelming. It’s an emotionally charged time.  When To…

    We regularly review major projects to extract valuable lessons and pass on the knowledge so that everyone can benefit.

While making your foot physically smaller is impossible to do without risky cosmetic surgery, there are plenty of easy things you can do to make your feet appear smaller.

    The symptoms of allergic conditions may be different depending on the type of ailment. Thus, when treating allergies with allopathic methods (that mainly imply using conventional pharmaceutical medications), the attention is primarily directed at the presenting symptoms: dermatitis (eczema, itching, redness, etc.), allergic rhinitis (runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes) and etc. Alternative therapies, mainly deprived of undesired side effects, provide a brilliant opportunity of using drugs for each symptom or treating the body as a whole (more typical of homeopathic approaches).

It's also an essential part of taking care of the most valuable person in your life, yourself.

There’s really no way to get around it. Once you organize your space, you have to maintain it or, like that bridge, it will fall down.

There's often a note of triumph in their voices when they come to the story's punchline, "and I had one!" They assume that I'm against keeping things and they want to head off any suggestions I might have for downsizing. Sometimes, the story is that they decided to get rid of a bunch of stuff that hadn't been used in decades and "the…

    We’re all given the same amount of time in our lives. Some, may choose to start their day idling, complaining, or thinking of things that do not matter to them in anyway, while some may choose to do things that will get them to their goals. What goal do you have in mind right now? I know I have a few. Let me list you some: Write a blog. Create e-tailer websites selling goods that matter to those who need them. Get lean. Common goals, right? Goals. What are they and why do you need them? There’s this saying from one of the, or if not, the most, wisest man ever that’s…

  • Teaching my Daughter to be Confident in Spite of Myself

    photo credit freedigitalphotos.net You’ll notice the picture above isn’t me or my daughter.  This is simply because I don’t share pictures of my family here.  But occasionally I chose to post a conversation that involves them that I think really matters.  And when it comes to confidence, I think its an incredibly important topic as our children have so many influences to challenge their self worth. As the mom of two teenaged sons and a pre-teen daughter who are all three very athletic, I always just assumed our daughter would be as confident as her brothers.

If you find yourself invited or hosting a last minute Halloween party, here are a few super easy ideas for party treats you can whip out in no time at all!  Above you’ll see Halloween cupcakes ~ what makes them special are the themed cupcake wraps, sprinkles, and Halloween toothpicks. You can still grab this at your local big box store 11th hour and they might even be on sale. Pumpkin spice muffins are always a hit and give party goers something other than sweets to pick…

It also feels like physical photocopying: each email is attached as (virtual) copies under all its related action(s).  In time, you have a list of actions, and all the…

While she sprints from one morning chore to the other, I lumber behind her with a coffee mug in my hand and a grouchy expression. I’ve noticed a few things she does differently and that might be the reason why she’s so pumped while I’m still rubbing off cobwebs out of my eyes… First, she goes to sleep earlier.

This Zen-inspired approach may seem like an anthropomorphic mind-game to some Westerners, but the truth is that the items around us, both physical and digital, do “cry out” in their way.

Some are generated by other people and appear without any effort on your part, like email, or your friends’ Facebook posts. Other things that grab your attention come from your own thoughts, and emerge as you make your way through your day. You see an ad for a car and think, “I’d like to test drive that.” Or it occurs to you that you haven’t had your holiday plans approved by your boss. As things have arrived, you make decisions about them. What’s to be done about this…

    Back in the winter of 1976, a low-budget boxing movie came out of nowhere to take the world by storm and win the Academy Award for best picture. You’ll have guessed by now that it was ‘Rocky’, and for this 13 year-old boy it was huge. Epic. Transformational.  I pretty much immediately raided my meagre savings and bought a speed bag, some boxing gloves, and a skipping rope. For the better part of two years, my poor parents put up with an incessant thumping from the basement. I got fit, I got fast, I got good. I think I even managed a one-armed pushup. Then, I got hit squarely in the…

    Fourteen years in to my GTD practice, I am still making new discoveries. Last week I attended our new second day public seminar. One of the points we make in this follow-on course is that people often “compartmentalise” their use of GTD to their detriment–applying it only to work, for example, instead of giving themselves the opportunity to experience greater stress-free productivity in their personal lives as well. I had long since integrated personal and professional commitments in one place, yet I realised that there were still important areas of my life that felt…

(Doing things is good, though, surely?) Well, Busy has rules. You have to stay in motion. Inactivity is forbidden. And, crucially, you’re not allowed to think about why you’re doing the things you’re doing. Priority isn’t considered. Questions like “what is this thing I’m doing now helping me ultimately to achieve?” are not allowed. It’s as if you’re running, but you’re not allowed to look…

    I had a question from a reader yesterday about sent mail. The user was creating messages, flagging them for follow-up and categorizing them before sending them out. He would then go back later and look for those messages in the categorized groupings in the CYD InboxPro folder. The InboxPro folder holds only messages you receive, anything you send is placed only in your SENT folder. My suggestion to this user was to create a new virtual folder, call it CYDFile or CYDPro. Setup that folder to look at the Inbox, InboxPro and Sent folders and to include all messages. Once that search folder is…

  • How Tim Ferriss Taught Me To Do Double Unders, & The 10,000 Double Under Challenge

    Cody Wheeler
    25 Oct 2014 | 5:45 pm
    For those of you that are unfamiliar with what a double under is, well, I can’t really say I blame you. A double under is the passing of a high speed jump rope not once, but twice under your feet in a single jump. This is a common movement in the sport of CrossFit, which has recently taken the fitness world by storm, and a sport I participate in frequently. But this story isn’t just about double unders. While it does involve the execution of 10,000 double unders in 30 days, it’s about much more than that. This is a story about: Skill acquisition hacking Self-image hacking…
  • Ok… So I screwed up… Here’s how I’m fixing it.

    Mistakes suck… We all make them. It’s a part of life. The important thing to remember about mistakes is that they do happen, and when they do, as long as you handle them the right way, people will forgive, and you’ll probably end up being better off because of them. Very recently, I screwed up… It affected you, quite possibly in a pretty significant way, and I’m going to fix it in just a minute. But first (because I always try to provide value in every post / email), I want to talk a little bit about how you can handle mistakes when they do happen. Here’s…
  • 13 Ridiculous Excuses For Not Making Money

    Cody Wheeler
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:07 pm
    I’ve received all kinds of questions over the years about money and wealth creation, and quite a few more since opening my new course last week. Some are totally legit, but some are silly, like… “I’m 46. Isn’t it too late for me?” “What if I have kids? Kids cost money.” “I have a house to pay for. I can’t save any money.” Can you see what these people are doing? Over the years since I’ve been selling online courses, I’ve taken note of a strange phenomenon. It never fails. When I open a course, people ask question…
  • Your Three 401k Millionaire Options Explained

    Cody Wheeler
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:23 pm
    When I first started developing 401k Millionaire, it was originally planned as a high end video course only. It was packed full of several hours of high definition video content, plus extra downloads such as email scripts and templates, full slide decks, MP3s, PDFs, and accountability reminders. There was only going to be one way to get it, to be a high achieving premium subscriber. But then I thought back on why I created Academy Success in the first place, to help as many individuals as I possibly could. Yes… There are a ton of different ways I do that already… 95% of the…

  • Why You Should Make Your Smartphone Your Primary Email Device

    Mike Vardy
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:07 am
    One of the most common productivity pitfalls I've come across is that people spend too much time in their email application than in any other application on their computer. This problem is universal, whether the user is a Windows or OS X devotee. The pull of email is strong. And it's often strengthened by those they work with which makes it all the more difficult to break free from its grip. There are two pieces of advice I'll offer to those who are trying to be more productive and they identify email as a factor in slowing their progress. The first is to check email "second thing" in the…
  • Book Review: Essentialism

    Mike Dariano
    27 Oct 2014 | 3:35 pm
    The following post is a guest post from regular Productivityist contributor Mike Dariano. Mike offers up book reviews here at Productivityist , and he writes about other things he's learned at People Smarter Than Me. You can connect with him on Twitter at @MikeDariano. “It’s about pausing to constantly to ask, ‘Am I investing in the right activities?'” In Essentialism, Greg McKeown wants you to line up all the the work you do in business and life, the things that are painful and pleasurable, and the stuff that makes you feel great and feel sick. Line it up like a series of bowling…
  • The Midweek Manifesto: A Weekly Reality Check That Works

    Mike Vardy
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:19 pm
    Back in 2010, I penned something I called The Midweek Manifesto. I didn’t dive into what it meant all that much back then. I simply wrote it and posted it. But as the conventional work week comes to a close here, I felt it was time to revisit its origin and meaning. Not just for you…but for me. Here’s The Midweek Manifesto as I wrote it for WorkAwesome several years ago: My mission is to reflect on the beginning of the week, see what I’ve not done and reboot it and see what I’ve done and celebrate it. Looking forward, I will take what’s left to be done and do it. With the rest of…
  • The Evolution of Contexts

    Mike Vardy
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:07 am
    My podcasting partner-in-crime Michael Schechter posed this challenge to me on Twitter: That was quite the challenge, but I took it. After that exchange, I saw a flurry of follow-up activity that was great to see. Several people had their own thoughts on what contexts were (and weren’t) and Schechter joined the fray with his own definition later on in the thread: The question mark at the end was telling: There are so many different ideas of what contexts are that I think it is worth examining them not only from the vantage point of what they were initially defined as in David Allen’s book…
  • How I Use Priority Levels in Todoist

    Mike Vardy
    16 Oct 2014 | 3:07 am
    Todoist has been my task manager for some time, and one of the features it offers is the ability to flag tasks as needed. I have avoided using priorities until recently, but I finally figured out how I wanted to use them and have started to add them to my Todoist workflow. One of the key points about using them is that I’ve made a point of using them sparingly, as Gregory McKeown suggests in his book Essentialism. “The word priority came into the English language in the 1400s. It was singular. It meant the very first or prior thing. It stayed singular for the next five hundred years.” -…
