Time management is a lie

2022-04-12T06:04:49+00:00

Time management is a lie we need to stop telling ourselves Time management is an illusion. It’s not real. Out of all the things we can manage in our life, time isn’t one of them. By definition, when we manage something we have control of it, we govern it, we can train it, influence it. [...]

Time to start time boxing—and don’t stop until you’re a time champ!

2020-04-27T12:53:59+00:00

Time boxing is a lot like shadowboxing. You know—shadowboxing: from TV and movies where a fighter is sparring with an imaginary opponent as a form of training. (Usually accompanied with upbeat triumphant-like music.) Time boxing is where you’re sparring with the clock—trying to complete a task against a drop-dead deadline—and you better win. I hated [...]

Right NOW is the Most Important Moment of Your Life. Just down the street is an empty vacant lot. It’s been there for a while. It’s close to downtown, so I imagine there’s a ton of potential uses for the property. So, how much is the property worth? When it [...]
