Tip of the Day – Hack Life


Maybe I am dating myself here but does anyone remember the show MacGyver?  He could do just about anything with just about anything. There is a site called www.lifehacker.com that I would classify as a virtual MacGyver.  Check it out; it is one of my favorites.

Tip of the Day – Hug Your Kids

There is no better way to help your kids feel more loved and valued than a hug.  I have an eight year-old boy and an eighteen year-old boy and girl and none of them mind being hugged by me.  What a great feeling.

Tip of the Day – Write It Down!

As I get older I come up with some really great ideas.  Unfortunately, they leave me as fast as they come to me.

Jotting something down on paper, or in my case on my iPhone,  gives the idea new life; it takes the idea from  a thought into a possible action.

If you’re not a techie carry a small pocket notebook instead.  Also make sure you put it next to your bed as many people have great ideas that come to mind right before bed or first thing in the morning.

A simple as this is, it really works!

Love, live, and ride.

Tip of the Day – Get More Done Today!

I, like most people, never seem to accomplish the things I set out to do every day.

Taking another page, not literally, from the 4-Hour Work Week, by Timothy Ferris, I have slowly begun to incorporate his idea of checking email only twice per day.  I admit I have not gone cold-turkey but am working towards this.

By the very nature of email delivery, and notification, we have been trained, like Pavlov’s dog, to read new email as soon as it pops up on our screen or smartphone.  This act, unfortunately, disrupts your thought flow and forces you to ‘start over’ on whatever you were doing, therefore severely limiting your productivity.

On days that you may be out of the office make sure that people know you are only checking email twice per day and they should call you if there is an urgent need.

Try it out and I think you will see that it really does work.

Love, ride, and live.
