Some interesting data here - collaboration is an important part of being more productive. Being it working from a office, environment, working at home or from the beach ... my favourite in the "lifestyle first come first" mindset
After compiling decades of research, MIT Professor Tom Allen found that, despite the seemingly booming popularity of business collaboration platforms, people are not likely to collaborate very often if they are more than 50 feet apart. Kind of a bummer, considering the number of people who work remotely…
This is a excellent tribute to Jim Rohn – my first mentor & still my favorite. I remember 20 plus years ago I was very fortunate to sit right next to him at a birthday party ! Picked his brains & got to ask him a few questions I had at the time.
They call him the mentor to millionaires – but for me goes much deeper, its about the basics of living life exceptionally well. Ranges from bringing our kids up, self discipline, mixing with the right people, health & so much more.
My book shelf is loaded with probably every book Jim has written and also most if not all his audio books. I remember him saying rich people have big libraries & poor people have big TV’s, this could be one of the main things that changed the direction my life. Jim Rohn is the one that got me to love reading books of substance. He changed my thought pattern that lead me to take action, lead me attract great people to life – many that are my best friends today.
If you get 10% of what I got from Jims teachings I am sure your life can start to change for the better.

Since I have write down I really make sure I use my not to do list I feel I am in much more control of my life. And of course get lots more done…& feel more relaxed and balanced in my life. Surprising how much we get can get done without distractions.
Here is a list of tools that helped me cut my daily work time down from 15 hours a day to two hours (often less)
www.e.ggtimer.com (This is a online timer I use for keeping my work time under control)
www.rapportive.com ( gmail add on that lets you add Facebook, twitter & linked in contacts with gmail)
I always make sure I spend NO longer than 50 minutes at any one time on my laptop. I find that is optimal time frame for productivity. Then I have a 10 minute total break, this is when I stretch, drink water etc, easy read or perhaps lay down. I even set an alarm to time my 50 minute & 10 minute blocks. When I am in work zone I turn off phones, all forms of messaging, this way I can think clear. One book I read said if we are distracted it take 20 minutes to get back to the same level of concentration , another study says when we multi task our IQ levels can be less that someone who are high on weed !
It is extremely important to be 100% where you are e.g. when you work 100% work, when you are relaxing or with friends be 100% there.
For me I find i think better sitting on the beach or in a park…ideas just seem the flow that way. I always make a note of my ideas and then batch them in relevant projects.
Anyway, I will share more ideas on being more in less time soon
Miss a meal if you have to, but don’t miss a book.
Some people claim that it is okay to read trashy novels because sometimes you can find something valuable in them. You can also find a crust of bread in a garbage can, if you search long enough, but there is a better way.
Most homes valued at over $250,000 have a library. That should tell us something.
Everything you need for your better future and success has already been written. And guess what? It’s all available. All you have to do is go to the library. But would you believe that only three percent of the people in America have a library card. Wow, they must be expensive! No, they’re free. And there’s probably a library in every neighborhood. Only three percent!
Some people read so little they have rickets of the mind.
I now have one of the better libraries. I admit that I haven’t read everything in my library, but I feel smarter just walking in it.
Don’t just read the easy stuff. You may entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
The book you don’t read won’t help.
Books are easy to find and easy to buy. A paperback these days only costs six or seven dollars. You can borrow that from your kids!
It isn’t what the book costs; it’s what it will cost if you don’t read it.
