Hi Sam,

Start with this for some …fun!

Manage your energy, not your time.

Very cool article (thx Rob Farmer) with simplified actions to increase your energy. Skim the checklist below for tips.

This was printed in 2007 and could be a great annual review tool.

Here’s what stuck with entrepreneur Jesse Itzler two years after living with a Navy SEAL (article):

  • Do Something Hard Every Day
  • Don’t Put Off the Little Things—Just Get Them Done
  • Simplicity
  • Say No to Stuff
  • Have a Plan

And thought provoking topics from Tim Ferriss’ Tools of Titans:

  • Not waiting to pursue your dreams
  • Starting extremely small
  • Morning priming
  • Conviction without stubbornness
  • Stimulating the subconscious mind

What routines and hacks/tips work for you to have a productive day / highly productive moments?

Favourite reads & listens:

  • Have a quick squizz at how better minds are being built (thanks Claire Spencer!)
  • Introductions to blockchain and cryptocurrencies: 1, 2, 3 & 4 (thanks Ross).
  • Be inspired ~ wise Otto Scharma’s thoughts on how we’re creating new systems (thanks Jan):
  • Creating constantly high performing teams is an amazing achievement. Extreme Teams and Radical Candor “Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity” are two books that I’m enjoying at the moment.Many tips from these books remind me of the Hub Australia culture and communications that Jan Stewart and the crew there have built. Watching their story of success over the past 7+ years, I’ve admired their tenacity and the depth of understanding of each other. It’s helped challenging conversations (“radical candour”) to happen and progress to occur for the individual and the team, creating ripple effects for many others.
  • Comment for reflection:  “it’s your role to help people feel necessary” – Sebastian Junger, “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging”.

Great online presence:

  • Writer Gen Callahan is extending her online footprint with a new (free) story a day via Instagram. What creative ways can you advertise your professional services?
  • Trevor’s LinkedIn photo 🙂
  • Leadership topics have you captivated? Enjoy Andy Hedges’ posts on LinkedIn or Twitter.
  • The extended list is here and here.

Thanks for all the replies to the last few newsletters. It’s a treat to learn from you and hear what you enjoyed.

Have a fantastic week!
