How to Sleep Better for More Time and More Energy

What many people don’t recognize about time management is that it’s inseparable from energy management. In other words, there’s no point getting back time to yourself if you don’t have the energy to use it properly. Many of us want to work out and get into shape, or we want to learn a new language, or we want to start a side project. Unfortunately, we tell ourselves, we just don’t have the time to do those things. This isn’t true though: if it were, then you wouldn’t have been able to watch that whole box-set of Breaking Bad recently! The problem is energy. The problem is that you come home from work and have no energy remaining. One way to …

How to Buy Back Your Time!

If you ran a business, then you would recognize the value of time. Time is money as they always say and if you can get back an hour in the day then you can use that hour to do one more job for one more client and get paid once more! Thus any time you outsource a job, you should be able to work out just how much this is profiting you. Every job you hire someone to do should be an investment that will offer a return. The more you spend, the more you should make. People don’t think about their personal lives this way but they should. Your time might not be worth money but it certainly has …

Why You Need to Rethink Your Job

Right now, your job takes up the vast majority of your free time. You probably spend 8 hours a day at work and at least 1 hour a day commuting. Sometimes you’ll clock out late (most times in fact) and then there’s the time you spend getting your lunch and clothes ready for work. In short, you don’t really spend 8 hours a day at work… you spend 10 hours at least. You spend 8 hours sleeping too, so that means you have 6 hours max to yourself. Oh dear. And here’s the thing: your job is only likely to get more stressful. As most of us try to gain a better salary, we are forced to take on more …

Top Ways to Automate Your Lifestyle

Automation is a business term that basically means you set up a system to handle a part of your job for you. This in turn allows you to spend more time doing other important things and at the same time to exponentially increase your output and scale your production.

Stop Deferring Your Happiness

You Can Already Do the Things You Want to Do One of the biggest wrong assumptions that the vast majority of people on this planet make is that they aren’t able to do the things they want to do. To clarify, the assumption that many of us make is that we don’t yet have the means to live our dreams and that the only way to do so is to work harder.

I’m here to tell you that it’s time to …

How to Workout in 10 Minutes

This will show you how to genuinely work out in ten minutes. The Routine …

How to Spend Less Time Cooking

One of the biggest lies you see commonly in books and online is that you can cook a meal in ten minutes. How often have you seen books with titles like ‘Ten Minute Meals’? There are a few things you can cook in ten minutes but really these don’t get much more ambitious than beans on toast or ‘an egg’. If you want to make an actual meal though, you’ll spend a lot more time in the kitchen. The perfect example of this is when you see an instruction like ‘take your chopped onion’. Hang on a second! Where did this onion come from? Who chopped it? The onion fairies? But even the books that don’t use these little tricks …
