5-Bullet Monday #23 (15/06/2020)

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 from the archives: Ultimate Personal Management Systems. It’s about how to build simple systems to optimize your life following 3 simples rules: easy to search, minimal setup, and quick to maintain.

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 Instagram –
If you haven’t already, you can follow this blog’s Instagram here. 😉 I 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 book summaries – 
This week I summarized “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. You can find my summary here. The Miracle Morning a 6-step morning routine using what are called Life S.A.V.E.R.S.: silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and scribing. A good book to pick up if you’re looking to upgrade your mornings.

On having great ideas –
Here’s something I shared on my Twitter this week about coming up with great ideas: “Don’t edit your ideas when brainstorming. Your only job is to come up with as many ideas as possible. Knowing which idea is incredible only comes later. Writing an essay is identical. First, write. Then, edit.”  What’s your process for having great ideas? Hit reply and let me know 😉
