The best way to make decisions is to…have the most accurate data, or the truth, as much as possible to make the most informed decisions.

So often we live in a fake reality, we live in…

I’m a huge fan of Ray Dali’s work. He put together a beautiful way to easily understand how our economics work. This summarizes so much what I’ve learned, over a long time, in such a short and succinct manner. A must view.

One way to be more focused, is to remove distractions.

For Mac users, the simplest and most effective way to do this, is by enabling the “Do Not Disturb” feature, and hide your dock.

Using these 2 features, you will have a fully focused productive work space. You won’t have any notifications occuring, and you won’t have any red badge notifications appearing in your dock. Which happens every time someone messages you.

The latest MacBook Pro updates make this even easier to achieve with their touchbar. You can add a “Do Not Disturb” button right to your keyboard.
