Complain Much? complain productivity Dec 20, 2020

Do you want to know how you can derail your productivity?

It’s something that we all can easily fall into.

Now, I want you to...

Embrace the Whitespace productivity scheduling whitespace Dec 17, 2020

When you plan, and you SHOULD plan, I'm always telling you:
"Tell your time where to go, instead of wondering where it went."

Do not schedule every minute of your day.

You Need to Have Office Hours boundaries entrepreneur productivity Dec 15, 2020
