Here is your weekly dose of “5-Bullet Monday,” a list of what I’m pondering and exploring.

What I’m starting—
I’m going to start a YouTube channel! I spent this week improvising a “studio” to make sure I have good lighting and video quality.

What topics do you think I should cover first? Hit reply and let me know your suggestions 😉

What I’m reading—
I’m now reading “The Willpower Instinct“, another book that had been on my reading list for a while. It’s about the science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity.

Three chapters in and I have learned so much already. So I’m excited about what’s to come in the next few chapters and getting insights that I can use for productivity and performance.

What I’m watching—
I enjoyed Bo Burnham stand-up act “Make Happy“. We normally think of comedians as people who say jokes to a microphone. It was refreshing to see someone do comedy in a whole different style. The songs were fantastic too. Highly recommended.

On great interviews—
Matthew McConaughey’s interview on the Hot Ones is fantastic. First, it’s a genius concept—interviewing people while eating spicy wings. But it gets even better because Sean Evans is a great interviewer. A great channel to follow.

And if you want to see more of Matthew McConaughey, his interview for “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifianakis was hilarious.

Be more productive—
In my Productivity Vault, you can find 300+ proven productivity hacks. These are all the productivity hacks I’ve spent years collecting and testing.

Everything that works with simple step-by-step instructions on how to apply to your work and life.
