No Computer Day

Cat is sitting on top of a laptop.

I don’t think any credible writing about time management can start without acknowledging certain things. I am single, have no other responsibilities, work mostly remotely. and live typically either in a hotel or in an apartment with a weekly cleaning service, in a central part of town. What is “No Computer Day?” It's a day a ...

Life Working out a lot - enjoying being used to the altitude and no longer being sick!

AirBnB Travel Tip

Credit: Wikipedia

I stay in AirBnBs a lot (referral link), and my strategy is as follows: Filter on the things I care about (entire place, washing machine, location). Pick 2-3 that would be fine. Message them expressing an interest, asking a question, and saying something along the lines of "as it's a longer stay, are you open to giving me a ...

2016: Scale

Apophysis 3D fractal ball

For 2016, I chose the word “scale”. Couple of reasons for this: As a new manager, I feel like this is the biggest thing I need to work on. I really want to focus on projects that have the best ROI.
