My Dear Friends,
when you have Love
in your Heart,
the simplest things make you
Happy.

Every moment
is a Gift.
Every tear
touches the Soul.
Every Prayer
brings Hope and Joy
to Hearts somewhere,
and then
everywhere
And the Time
is your Time.
And it is precious
beyond Time.

 Your awareness 
of who you Truly are,
your consciousness
of the Love of God
for you
and for your precious Life,
will capture more
than a moment in Time.
It will tell a Sacred Story –
the Greatest Story
of all Time.

When the waves
of your thoughts
crash upon distant shores,
far away from your Heart,
far from the Loving Dreams
and desires you have for yourself
and others,
destruction may prevail.

When you have Love
by your side,
when Love walks
hand in hand
with your mind,
Life prevails,
and you are Happy.

There is nothing on this Earth
we prize more than
Friendship.
Let us be Friends,
with everyone,
and every Living Being.

Peace
makes all things possible.
Hope
makes all things work.
Love
makes all things Beautiful.

You can
make your Heart
feel things it hasn’t felt
in a long, long time.

As your thoughts wander by,
never let them go astray.
Love
is high above,
shinning down like the Sun,
and all it wants to do
is stay.

So Pray,
and the maze of blues
will depart the day
and fly away
on Wings of Grace
never to stay.

“O to Grace how great a debtor daily
I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy Goodness like a fetter,
bind my wandering Heart to Thee
Prone to wander Lord I feel it,
prone to leave the God I Love
Here’s my Heart,
O take and seal it,
seal it for Thy Courts Above
.”

–  “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”
Robert Robinson – in 1757

God
will always take care of you,
wherever you go,
whatever you do.
There are more Blessings
in this Life
than we can ever
know.
.
Let us Thank God
for the Goodness
in our Hearts.
And ask Him
to let our Human Hearts
be free,
to Love.

I wish you Love,
Joy, Happiness and Peace.

Goodnight.

Here are 22 of the best day-to-day,
time-saving tips to use now
– edited –

I’ve been testing and adjusting various productivity techniques for the past five years, read lots of books (most of them repeating) and here’s some of my findings:

It’s not about time. It’s about energy

We try to squeeze as many hours in one work day, to be “productive”, but in the end everything depends less on time, and more on your focus, motivation and overall well-being (all of them linked directly with energy levels).

Some of the key findings:

  1. Decide what’s important because in five years, 80% of what you do today will not turn into anything. It’s just busywork, no useful outcome.
  2. Sleep, food and exercise can help you triple your outcome, because they increase focus, motivation and energy levels.
  3. The 2-minute rule: if you can do something (like replying to an email, or a house chore) in two minutes, do it now. Planning it for later, remembering it, doing it in the future will take 5 minutes or more.
  4. The 5-minute rule: the biggest cure against procrastination is to set your goal not to finish a scary big hairy task, but to just work five minutes on it. You’ll find out that most times it continues well beyond the five minutes, as you enter a flow state.
  5. Seinfeld’s productivity chain: if you want to be good at something, do it every day. Including on Christmas, Easter and Judgement Day. No exceptions.
  6. Tiny habits (Tiny Habits w/ Dr. BJ Fogg), highly linked with the five-minute rule, helps you create good habits quickly. It works, I tested it.
  7. Your memory sucks. Get everything out of your head, even if you’re a genius. Write it down in a notebook, put it in your todo-list app, on your phone, talk to Siri, I don’t care.
  8. As few tools as possible. I’ve tested most of the todo managers and finally stayed with Cultured Code‘s Things app and Google Calendar (iCal is ok, but Google Calendar integrates well with Gmail, my default client). It doesn’t matter what you use (pen & paper are fine) if you understand the next rule.
  9. Routine beats tools. You need discipline, and this means for me two things: I plan my day first thing in the morning, and I write a short daily log every day. This helps me stay sane, prioritize well, scrap useless tasks, and do what matters. This saves me hours.
  10. Pomodoros. That’s timeboxing—for 30 minutes do only the task at hand. Nothing else: no phones, email, talking to people, running out of the building in case of fire. Nothing else.
  11. Always wear your headphones. You don’t have to listen to music, but it will discourage people to approach you.
  12. Email scheduling and inbox zero. Don’t read your email first thing in the day, don’t read it in the evening (it ruined many evenings for me), and try to do it only 3 times a day: at 11am, 2pm and 5pm. And your email inbox is not a todo list. Clear it: every message should be an actionable task (link it from the todo app), a reference document (send to Evernote or archive), or should be deleted now.
  13. Same thing for phone calls. Don’t be always available. I always keep my phone on silent, and return calls in batches.
  14. Batch small tasks. Like mail, phones, etc.
  15. MI3. Most important three tasks (or the alternative one must – three should – five could). Start with the most important first thing in the morning.
  16. Willpower is limited. Don’t think that willpower will help you when you get in trouble. Make important decisions in the morning and automate everything possible (delegate, batch etc.). US presidents don’t have to choose their menu or suit color everyday—otherwise their willpower will be depleted at that late hour when they should push (or not push) the red button).
  17. The most powerful thing. Always ask yourself what is the most powerful thing you can do right now. Then apply rule #4.
  18. Ship often. Don’t polish it too much—as they say in the startup world, “if you’re not ashamed of your product, you’ve launched too late’!
  19. Pressure can do wonders. Use rewards or social commitment. We’ve recently done this with the new Grapefruit website. The previous one took two and a half years to launch. The new one took two and a half days and we did it over one hackathon weekend (+Monday).
  20. Scheduled procrastination. Your brain needs some rest, and sometimes that new episode from Arrow can do wonders that the smartest TED talk won’t.
  21. Delete. Say No. Ignore. Don’t commit to schedules. I love the last one, it’s from Marc Andreessen, because it allows him to meet whomever he wants on the spot. A lot of people will hate you for this, but you’ll have time to do relevant stuff. Do you think you’ll regret that in 20 years, or doing something for someone you don’t really care about, just to be superficially appreciated.

That’s it for now. My procrastination break is over, I’m going back to work.
