The Most Unproductive 9 minutes of Your Day (Unless You Do This)

The Most Unproductive 9 minutes of Your Day (Unless You Do This)

What are the most unproductive 9 minutes of your day?

It’s no secret. It’s the snooze button. Did you see that coming? Probably.

But we’re not done yet. I’m going to explain why the snooze button is so unproductive, and how to actually snooze productively. Yes, it’s possible to hit the snooze button, and not be a complete failure, regardless of what the internet tells you.

How to Start Your Home Library (With Jim Rohn’s Help)

“A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library.” – Shelby Foote

Jim Rohn says “most large, exquisite homes have a library. Does that tell you something?”

There’s a reason these homes have libraries. The books in that library are one of the reasons they are where they are today. Of course, you don’t need an expensive house to have a library. A bookshelf in your bedroom or an empty closet works just fine.

If you’re short on space, go through your books and get rid of the junk first. Make room.

Jim Rohn gives guidelines in his books and seminars for what he believes should be in a basic home library.

Here’s Rohn’s advice, plus more on starting your home library.

Here’s Why Patience is the Key to Success

In a world where literally everything we could want as consumers is at our fingertips, it’s difficult not to expect instant gratification.

At the touch of a button we immediately receive all sorts of things.

But the problem with all of this ‘on demand’ availability is that we are evolving into a race that acts with expectation, rather than taking the time to nurture ourselves as responsible human beings.

Here’s Why You Should Embrace Failure

Here’s Why You Should Embrace Failure

Everywhere you look these days, people’s achievements are being celebrated, whether it be in the papers, among our family and friends, or on social media.
