5-Bullet Monday #35 (07/09/2020)

written by Dan Silvestre

Happy Monday!

Here’s your weekly dose of awesomeness.

On planning your life –
With September coming around, time to plan the last sprint of the year. In this post, I cover my system to plan my personal and professional goals. A template you can copy and use for your own planning is included 😉

On improving your focus –
I get a lot of emails asking: “How can I improve focus and work/study for a longer period of time?” Our attention levels draw dangerously close to that of a goldfish. We lost our ability to concentrate. Focus is a lost art. What’s really going on here? Too much. That’s what’s going on…

On Roam –
I’m now moving most of my notes from other places – Evernote, Notion, notes apps, etc. – into Roam. And I find that the more I add to it, the better and more useful Roam becomes. I plan to use it to store ideas and sources for new writing and well as insights from my life. What do you use it for? Hit reply and let me know.

On book summaries –
ReWork gives insight on how to improve your business, relationships, productivity, and work environment. Quick and easy to read with lots of actionable ideas, all-around a fantastic book on business and entrepreneurship. The perfect playbook for making it on your own. My summary here.

On the best productivity hacks – 
I spent years collecting and testing the best productivity hacks. The final result it a simple database of everything that works with simple step-by-step instructions on how to apply to your work and life. I call it The Productivity Vault. Want to get access to this database with more than 300 proven productivity hacks? You get immediate access by clicking here.

I try to make it one of the best emails you get each week, and I hope you’re enjoying it.
