Less is more

It can be good to be brief.

Spend 5 minutes looking up a company.
Write a 2 sentence email to an employee.
Send a 3 word follow up.

Reduce the friction to your tasks. Less is more.


When you live a busy life, it can be hard to get things done.

So simplify. Just get your Most Important Task done. Do it first thing in the morning.

“It’s such a small thing to implement, and yet I’m raving about it like it’s a huge revelation. But it is. Sometimes small things can make big differences.”

Quote of the Day

“Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill.”
