Do you know where your time is going as well as you know where your money is going? You’re about to.

Here’s how to budget your time like you budget your money…

3 Simple Practices to Keep Email From Stealing Your Time

3 Simple Practices to Keep Email From Stealing Your Time

Email can steal more time than almost anything else.

When you’re going through email, you’re on someone else’s agenda. You’re responding to their needs.

Sure, you wouldn’t be doing it if you didn’t get something out of it, but most of the emails you send are answers to other people’s questions, and responses to their needs. Even if you’re sending a decline, that still takes time.

I’ve written about email hacks before. I shared some important tips, so let’s do a quick summary and then get into three more tips that I’ve developed to stay in control of my inbox…

The Junk Snowball: A Simple Decluttering Method That Actually Works

Stuff. It’s everywhere.

You have stuff you don’t use or need, and even stuff you forget you have.

Most of us have so much stuff that going through our garage is like shopping at a thrift store. All of the “oh yeah, I forgot about that!” and the “when did we buy this?”…you may even find that you’ve bought stuff that you didn’t even realize you already had.

The point is, you need to get rid of some stuff. Sell, donate, trash, or whatever…you need to declutter. That’s why you’re here.

Here’s a great method I’ve been using to get rid of 323 items over the last couple months…

Learning Can Be the Worst Enemy of Doing

Learning Can Be the Worst Enemy of Doing

I love learning.

Just last week I published “Never Stop Learning: 40 Places to Get Free Education Online”.

I’m a college student. I read daily. I’m taking a course at Codecademy. I’m constantly involved in military education.

Obviously, I’m a big fan of continued education.

The problem is when we let the process trump the outcome.

Never Stop Learning: 40 Places to Get Free Education Online

Sure, there are plenty of places to learn online.

You can always go to Google, YouTube and great blogs (like this one, right? Right?? Please tell me you love me!).

Those are all great places to find information, but you already know about those and it’s easy to get distracted at such broad websites – especially YouTube…have you ever fallen into the just-one-more-related-video-in-the-sidebar trap?

I spent a lot of time compiling these resources. Of course, I could have spent a lot more time, but you only live once – I’m using that phrase in the sense of time, not in the sense of making a really bad decision because YOLO.

Let’s dive in, starting with free college courses…
