Happy Thanksgiving everyone, hope you're enjoying time with friends and family.
This morning, I volunteered for Operation Turkey.
It was productivity on steroids.
We were making over 750 meals/hour.
The volunteers arrived between 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., and in different stations, prepared...
I have a special treat!
I was asked to be part of a book giveaway, so today I'll be giving away one of my favorite books, Concentration: Maintain Laser Sharp Focus and Attention for Stretches of 5 Hours or More.
This is one of my best selling books and my proudest work to date with over 200...

A friend and I came to a startling realization the role trauma plays in our lives and how...
Last few weeks, you’ve been learning about productivity and taking action. You learned that taking action is much more complex than merely a matter of choice.
Not understanding or denying that complexity is where people fall short. They assume it’s about choice, but...
Happy Fourth of July! For those not from the States, today is a special holiday to celebrate this country’s independence.
A friend invited me to celebrate by watching the sun rise over Lake Michigan (the main lake of Chicago), a tradition she’s been observing for nearly 30...
Last week, I talked about how action is not a matter of choice (if you missed it, you can read it here). There is more to action than wanting to act or knowing what to do.
