What are you doing right NOW? I’ve talked about proper goal setting techniques. I’ve yammered about to-do lists. I’ve tried the game, but it’s all crap for me. I don’t think in terms of formalities and committing to goals. I don’t think about the next thing to do on a list. I just DO stuff. […]

40 Year Old Learns How to Read
