One of the critiques of my reading is the question around how much information could possibly stick if I’m reading more than 52 self-help, business books in a year.

Convenience, however, often comes at the expense of understanding. The less time you spend examining things, the less you know about them. When it comes to understanding how you spend your life, it’s important to slow down and take the time. – The Bullet Journal Method In 2018 I launched a new podcast called Should I Read It. My thinking was th ...…
 
One of the books I’m working through is The Bullet Journal Method. Early in the book as Ryder Carroll started to talk about why you use the journal he had three great questions you need to ask yourself with your tasks. They are: Where are you now?

I was listening to The Tim Ferriss Show on my morning run and the interview with Howard Marks continually made me think of how often we get over confident when we talk to clients.

Sept 15th I ran my second 50km race, commonly called an Ultra Marathon because it’s longer than a marathon. Unfortunately this year I fell off a cliff at the end of July and messed up my ankle.

Of course the answer starts with “it depends”. What software is the default option in your desired field of work? If you need to use Photoshop, then you’re on macOS or Windows.

This is based off an answer I gave on Quora. Figure out what you’re going to do. – what are you good at now? – what will people pay for? – what is the target market you’re looking at? 2. Where will you offer your services? – is Upwork worth it? – what about testing your ideas on Fivver – build your own site and use it as the hub of your work 3. ...…
 
Without action, knowledge is often meaningless. As Aristotle put it, to be excellent we cannot simply think or feel excellent, we must act excellently. Yet the action required to follow through on what we know is often the hardest part. That’s why even doctors know better than anyone the importance of exercise and diet, 44 percent of them are o ...…
 
I was reminded of this fact this week. Here you can see where I was. My reading spot by the river I sat there for a few hours and read then sent some emails and did some writing on my phone.

Bad clients happen. They still happen to me and I have a long developed client vetting process. The thing is, each time it happens it’s your fault. You missed something about them that should have tipped you off. You rush through to the proposal so you didn’t have time to get to know them. Don’t sweat the bad clients. Get the work done and then ...…

Sure, some of the people in a market have considered you (and even rejected you). But most of the people in the market have never even heard of you. The market doesn’t have just one mind.

I got an email from a local web agency recently. I’ve done work for them in the past and it’s been okay to work with them. Nothing outstanding, but nothing terrible. Recently we were talking about more work and when I talked about my limited schedule the owner took a bit of exception with that. Here is the gist of the email: Wow, must be nice n ...…
 
The greats you look up to are just like you. They made hard decisions in the midst of odds that others faced. They kept going when it was hard.

He was a hero, that is for certain, but I think more than anything he w ...…

Lately I’m getting trouble to get more leads (and projects) and now most of my revenue get spend on salaries and not much get left fo ...…
 
The problem that a lot of businesses have is that they always want to assume that everything is going to go aces all day. That they’ll be maximally productive all the time. Oh and don’t forget the unicorn tears that they drink at their fancy desk in the glass cube that happens to be dog friendly. The rest of us live in the real world. Today I’m ...…
 
I’ve known Adam around WordPress for a few years but when we met at WooConf, I was very intrigued with his story. He is a cofounder of FooPlugins and ran that as his only job for 4 years.
