Entrepreneurship / Personal / Productivity

Many people struggle with not having enough time to do what they truly love, or even accomplish their most basic goals for the day. As an entrepreneur and business owner with a staff of over 20 employees, it’s been essential for me to master my time in order to keep up with my projects on the road. In this week’s video, I’d like to share...

Living Your Life Purpose Education / Entrepreneurship / Personal / Productivity / Spirituality

“It’s messing people up, this social pressure to ‘find your passion’ and ‘know what it is you want to do’. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This...

The Why of Happiness Entrepreneurship / Personal / Productivity / Spirituality

Despite having stated that I no longer offer business consulting, I occasionally get emails asking me if I can make an exception. Sometimes I’ll write back asking what they hope to get out of consulting, and it usually turns out they want advice on what they should do, or instructions for how they should do it. One of the reasons I stopped offering consulting is that...

Creative Projects and Productivity Education / Entrepreneurship / Family / Household / Personal / Productivity

When we came back to Bali a few weeks ago, we really hit the ground running. We’ve been very busy, but also creative and productive, and have been enjoying our time immensely. Within one week, we found a house we wanted to live in. It’s a small 3-bedroom house near Ubud, but it’s completely unfurnished and needs some renovation. We signed a lease for 13...

From Entrepreneur to CEO Entrepreneurship / Finances / Productivity

When I started my online business, I did everything myself. The planning, programming, graphics design, database management, server maintenance, marketing, customer support, billing, accounting, taxes — everything! Most of it I learned as I went along. It was a lot of work and took every spare moment of my time for several years. As the business grew, I realized that I didn’t have to do it all...

The villa we're renting in Bali Entrepreneurship / Personal / Productivity

I love my life! It’s a lifestyle I’ve created by choice and through persistent hard work, creativity, a bit of luck, and a lot of help from others. Not everyone would enjoy living like I do. Some people don’t like to travel. Others prefer the comfort of a steady paycheck, or are satisfied enough with their life as it is. And that’s awesome! But there are...

Planning for the Moment Music / Personal / Productivity / Travel

Do you ever find yourself stuck between the balance of enjoying whatever it is you’re doing in the moment, and being lost in hopes or fears about the future? This game seems to play out constantly in my own mind. When I’m not enjoying the moment, the wonders of life tend to pass me by unappreciated. But if I live without structure and planning, little gets...

Rainy day Costa Rica / Productivity

Last week we went with some friends to the Osa Peninsula — a very remote part of Costa Rica accessible only by boat where there is no Internet access, no cell phone service, and no electricity unless you have your own power source. And we had a fabulous time! Below, I’ll be sharing some photos and videos highlighting our trip. But first I’d like to...

The Art of Non-Conformity Entrepreneurship / Finances / Productivity

I’ve put off reading Chris Guillebeau’s book, The Art of Non-Conformity, for far too long. I won a copy of the book in a writing contest several months ago, and I figured now would be a good time to finish it, so I don’t have to carry it around to our next location. Fortunately, this book was interesting enough to me that I finished it...

How I Spend My Time Now Entrepreneurship / Family / Goals / Productivity

Update: In April, 2009, I wrote a post entitled How I Spend My Time, where I tracked what I was doing every minute of every day for one whole week, to help me visualize how much time I was spending on what really mattered to me. In March, 2011, I did it again and wrote this post below. In January 2013, Tim Ferriss asked if he could...
