How to Read More

Many of us say we wish we had more time in our lives to read, but how many of us actually make the time? I always set an annual reading goal (this year it's 200 books), but the main reason it works for me is that it motivates me to set aside time for something I already love. But what if you're trying to find more time to read and it's not the #1 thing you'd do if you had two minutes of free time (as it is for me)? Here are ten simple … [Continue Reading...]

Be More Productive By Hitting the Mark

My pal Erik Fisher of the Beyond the To-do List podcast (see my recent interview with him here), has a great new book out called Hit the Mark that's all about one of my most favorite topics: Productivity. {Yes, I'm the biggest productivity hack you'll ever meet. And no, that doesn't mean I'm that amazing at it.

Where I’ve Been…

This is the post where I tell you where I've been. Because it's been a long six months of me not really blogging. A long six months of me not doing much online, and a long six months of me being extremely thankful for that fact.

I live-tweeted it (more on that next … [Continue Reading...]

Why I Live-Tweeted My Daughter’s Birth

A funny thing happened on the fourth of April. I woke up, pregnant, and had a good day. Some work, some play, some rest. In close to a month I’d be having a baby, and I was settling into that stretch of pregnancy where you are uncomfortably large and eager for it all to be behind you. At night, I … [Continue...]

Do You Need to Rest?

We’ve all felt it. The overburdened overwork of a life gone mad.
