Happy Monday!

Here’s your weekly dose of awesomeness.

On productivity – 
Double your productivity in half the time. I spent 2 years reading, applying, and documenting the “best of the best” productivity hacks. Sure, it was a slow and tedious process. But now there are over 300 of the best ones… all in one place, for your convenience. Get immediate access now.

On deep work –
Deep work are professional activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate. Our goal is to systematically develop your personality ability to go deep – and by doing so, reap great rewards.

On decluttering –
Humans are collectors by choice. And yet, there are so many things that we will never need again. Having less frees not only space but also your mind, letting it focus on the things that matter. When you keep only the things you love, you are suddenly flooded with joy throughout the days. I came up with a simple exercise to help me find what things truly bring me joy. 

On Steve Jobs – 
In less than 40 years in business, Steve Jobs revolutionized 6(!) different industries — personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, computing, digital publishing. Now, Jobs was obviously smarter than the average individual with enormous creativity, ambition, and drive. But I think that us–mere mortals–can incorporate some of his productivity secrets into our daily lives. 

On thinking without thinking –
Our brain is like a computer that processes all the knowledge instantly to give the first impression. “Thin-slicing” allows us to make decisions quickly that can as good as those made cautiously and deliberately. This technique can be learned through practice and controlled to the point when you know you can trust your instincts or not. 

Have a great week!
