How Having a Second Phone Number and Cutting Down on Email Made Me 75% More Productive

  As a growth consultant, email is the bane of my existence. If you are an entrepreneur or freelancer, you can probably relate. A few months ago I started to realize how much time I spent on email: I used a fun tool called rescue time and it told me I was spending 6-8 hours of active time per week in Gmail. I received almost 250 emails a day! I was spending much too much time on email and not enough getting critical tasks done.     Fast forward a few months. I now receive a quarter of the emails […]

The Daily Happiness Cheat Sheet

Here we are heading into a new year again. I don’t know about you but this year flew by for me. Lots of exciting happenings and new beginnings. I hope you had an equally exciting and fulfilling year but the fact is we all have very different lives and our experiences on a day to day and year to year basis are drastically dissimilar. I know that a few of my personal friends perhaps had more difficult years than myself, losing loved ones, financial hardship, or just a general sense of stagnation. Regardless of whether your year was your best […]

Its All About Simplicity Stupid

You never know where you are going to find inspiration at the absolute time that you need it. Inspiration came to me today in the form of a website usability/user experience presentation performed by a work colleague of mine. So what could possibly have inspired me enough to focus an entire blog post on it? Let me set the scene. Since moving back to Boston it’s been hard for me to sit still and write. I have unfortunately put my book writing on hold for a while as I have had lots of catching up to do with friends and […]

How To Lose weight, Feel Great, and Save Money Without Fad Diets

Do you want a simple way to increase energy, lose weight, sleep better, improve mood, and save money while doing it?  I am going to show you the simplest diet you have ever been exposed to and tell you why its so effective.  BUT FIRST lets ditch the word “diet.”   Diet to me means short term solution for a long term problem.  Diet also sounds temporary and is often meant to sound painless.  It tricks us into thinking its going to be easy.  What I am going to share with you CAN BE EASY but to be the most effective […]

7 Things I Learned While Living In California

***This post is dedicated to my friends I left behind in San Diego. You’ll always have a place in my heart.*** Its been quite awhile since my last post.  I have been going through a big life transformation.  After my trip to Italy and my reintroduction to European culture I knew I needed to be closer to home and closer to Europe.  I have been missing the access to culture and history and I needed an immediate change so I went for it. As David Deida has taught me “Every moment waited is a moment wasted, and each wasted moment […]

A Friendly Reminder- Walk Barefoot Through The Grass

Do you ever walk through a beautiful park busily hurrying toward where you need to get too? Do you ever get the urge to chuck your shoes and put your feet in the grass? Do you drive by the same beautiful lake or pond everyday thinking about how wonderful it would be to put your feet in and just watch the swans and ducks float by? When was the last time you veered off course, took your shoes off, and felt the green grass against your bare feet or the sand between your toes?  My guess is you may not […]

Take A Mini-Vacation To Achieve Balance In Your Life

Last week I went away to the mountains.  I flew from San Diego to Bozeman Montana to meet up with some friends at a ski resort called Big Sky.  It was my first time in Montana and what a beautiful and peaceful place it is.  The snow filled tranquil setting and the bonding and communicating with my friends at the highest level was exactly what I needed.   This week I felt recharged and reinvigorated and “work” was less laborious.  Its extremely evident that relaxation does in fact enhance your creativity so how can you replicate the recharge from a vacation […]

Challenge Your Body And Mind With A Cleanse

This past Monday I started the Master Cleanse per the advice of a good friend of mine.  I had always been frightened of the thought of NOT EATING for 5-10 days.  It sounds awful when you first explore it.   Water, Salt flushes, Cayenne Pepper, Maple Syrup, Lemon, Laxative Teas, and well that’s it!  It took me 3 years to get the guts up to try it, and now I am five days in and I don’t regret it for a minute.  In fact, the sense of well-being and the experience has been overwhelming. First off, the Master Cleanse is not […]
