3 Secrets To Being More Productive

This is a long video but has amazing stuff related to productivity.

His 3 secrets to be more productive are:

  1. Do fewer things
  2. More often
  3. Get better at them

Big takeaways:

  • We all have the same amount of time (even successful entrepreneurs).
  • Be “world class” at one thing.
  • That one thing has to be an important thing.
  • Be okay with not doing tasks… You must be able to not do things in order to do more of the important task.
  • Think about your time’s value ($/hour) and adjust tasks according to their value.
  • Have a daily routine.

I hope you enjoyed this video as much as I did. I would love to hear your biggest takeaway from the video.

When Science Meets Art

How do you reconcile science to art? It feels as though the two should never even have a nodding acquaintance with one another, but it seems as if they now do. This video gives me yet another reason to find science even sexier than it already is.

Swiss scientist, Fabian Oefner, wants to make us think about the beauty in the science that we sometimes just don’t (or aren’t able to) see. Such as sound the sound waves produced by our stereo.

Now, we can’t see a sound wave, except… we can! Oefner uses his super-scientific mind to find a way to illustrate the point, using colorized crystals.
