When Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson announce their new book... well, I directly hit the (Pre) Order button! :D They're on a handful list of authors whom I trust and I'll always buy their books the minute they're announced, overriding my usual system for filtering what I read. I highly admire what they buil [...]

Planning the major moves & eliminating all distractions 🔑

You know the type of book that starts a major debate in your head and makes you reconsider the whole way you approach certain things in life? I've recently had such a revelation, while reading Brendon Burchard's "High Performance Habits" (and I'm only half way through it). In one of the recent emails I sent to our [...]

One of the key skills in life: learning how to break bad habits

A few days ago, I was listening (for the third time or so?) to an old conversation between Tim Ferriss and Naval Ravikant, CEO and co-founder of AngelList. At some point, Naval mentions a book about habits, and says something that caught my attention: "It’s good for me to always keep on top of mind how powerful my [...]

Dealing with toxic work habits and fooling yourself

The text below was sent as part of our weekly newsletter. If you enjoy it, subscribe here. I'm a hypocrite.

Why you should focus on the process instead of outcome

I have a hobby that most people would probably consider to be weird or even stupid. In my free time, I'm running on mountain trails, competing in races half-marathon long (so at least 21 km / 13 miles). Last weekend, for example, I participated in 23 km long local race called "Marathon 7500", with 1,600 m elevation, th [...]

In the past months I've read anything I could find on the subject of routines and habits, in search for new ways to be more efficient and work smarter - on both personal and professional levels.

How to start from scratch and become a master in a new field

Learning how to learn is a critical skill in life, but not one taught by those who are supposed to provide our education. School teaches us about the importance of credentials, certifications, but later in life we never actually use most of the things we learned - not to mention that some of those things don't remai [...]

The crucial skill we need in the knowledge economy

I'll bet that you're not getting as much quality work done as you'd like to (yeah, ok, this is a pretty safe bet to make :P ). Last year I read (and reread) Cal Newport's "Deep Work", a book that completely changed the way I work and I highly recommend. Cal Newport's a computer science professor who writes about [...]
