5-Bullet Monday #22 (08/06/2020)

written by Dan Silvestre


Here’s your weekly dose of awesomeness.

On digital minimalism –
No new articles this week (I’m focused on the course) so bringing a piece I enjoyed writing: How to Be Productive: 10 Ways to Actually Work Smarter. These are my 10 commandments on how to be productive so you can start working smarter instead of harder.

On Instagram –
I finally created an Instagram for this blog 😉 I will share lessons on productivity and performance in an easy and digestible format. I’ll also be creating short videos with one key idea that can revolutionize the way you work. If that’s something you’d be interested in, you can follow me here.

On the best productivity hacks – 
I spent 2 years researching, testing, and documenting the “best of the best” productivity hacks. The result? My Productivity Vault, which contains 300+ short and actionable productivity hacks that you can apply right now (in 1 minute or less). Achieve your goals, prioritize your time, and focus better.

On book summaries – 
Here are 3 great book summaries from the archive: “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” by Mark Manson, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie, and “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. Is there a specific book you would like to read a summary of? Hit reply and let me know 😉

On upgrading your problems –
Here’s something I shared on my Twitter this week: “The end goal of life is not to remove all your problems. What you want are better problems. Upgrade the quality of your existing problems so they become ones worth solving. When you upgrade your problems, they don’t weigh you down but instead lift you up.” Do you agree? How can you upgrade your problems? Hit reply and let me know 😉
