I have made it very clear on this site about my conflicted feelings toward Tim and his holier-than-thou attitude. It is almost a love/hate relationship; on one hand I admire his “life hacking” abilities and on the other I find it abhorrent for his complete lack of shame.

Over the last few months I have been looking to streamline my business to the absolute necessities. I set out to accomplish two primary goals: (1) reduce expenses and (2) reduce administrative overhead, both constraints must be accomplished or I will not proceed with a given process redesign.

OK, it has been a little over a week, and its time I present my findings. First and foremost, for someone such as myself that enjoys both the digital world and conventional methods of workflow, I found it very difficult to abandon old habits. Once I got over this hurtle—about three days into the experiment—I found the conversion to be much simpler. I take notes on just about everything; conversations, tasks, ideas, etc… Needless to

We have all been there, having too much to do and attempting to bend time to accomplish all the tasks. In this futile attempt of completing an unrealistic amount of work in a given time period, we begin performing tasks simultaneously of one another.
