In honor of Friday... I rebel.so I can unplug for at least 1.5 days, sleep in on Saturday and Sunday morning, and take a monster hike without worrying about having to run back to the computer and put out fires. This, while building a business and heading up ops for someone Fortune Magazine named in its Top 50 World Leaders list. Learn how I do it: http://rebel.so

It is indeed a wonderful time to be alive!
 
From Peter's Team: As Peter alluded to last week, we're always on the hunt for evidence of abundance in the world. Each week, we'll send you an example of how the world is getting better.

Feel free to share this with your friends, coworkers and family.

This first graph depicts life expectancy in the 20th century.

As of 1998, the average life expectancy in the U.S. is 77 -- nearly twice what it was in 1900.

Note the rate of change on this chart. You don't see world wars, terrorist attacks, or even the Great Depression. Just gradual, constant growth.

Several factors contribute to this increase of life expectancy: higher education, improvements in medical technologies, a rise in the overall standard of living, and improved nutrition.

There's never been a better time to be alive.

Cheers,
The Abundance 360 Team

P.S. Entrepreneurs, this is just a taste of the context we provide at Abundance 360. Learn more here: http://abundance360summit.com

+Forbes asks: Is coworking a fad or the future of business? (I'm betting on the latter.)

Are ambitious people happier? You bet, according to new research.

Anyone who works closely for an #entrepreneur knows that nobody really gets our jobs. Who would ever want to work crazy hours, under extreme pressure and tight deadlines, for visionaries who are focused on big, bold and seemingly crazy ideas? 

Most people run away from this type of work, citing every reason in the book. "It's too stressful. I won't ever have a life outside of work. Too many projects and competing deadlines. I'll just find a normal corporate job."

Rebels thrive in this environment. We crave innovation and exponential progress. We refuel from the energy generated by sharing new ideas, taking on big challenges and hanging out with inspiring people. 

Rebels break stereotypes. We create even better ways to facilitate high performance in ourselves and our teams, because when you work in an environment where anything is possible, suddenly every problem has a solution. (Even crazy work hours!)

For me, and rockstars in roles similar to mine, that solution is REBEL, the +Ridiculously Efficient Big Efficiency Library. REBEL is more than a constantly-updated database of my best productivity stuff, like tools, checklists, templates, interviews, best practices, and app reviews. It's a community of the most effective entrepreneurial staff on the planet. 

Rebels have a variety of titles -- assistant, project manager, director of operations -- but one thing we all share is the will to become even more effective than we already are.

Join us, and watch your #productivity (and sanity) skyrocket. 

(Entrepreneurs, read this to see why your best team members need REBEL: http://ridiculouslyefficient.com/rebel-ridiculously-efficient-big-efficiency-library/ )

Here's why I've been MIA for awhile. Part 1 of many.
In Part 1 of this multipart series, Marissa Brassfield discusses her mom's cancer diagnosis and death, and how she remained productive at work.

Eek! In a new study, 23% of 2,000 surveyed workers admitted to looking at or taking confidential information from their workplace.

Somehow that doesn't surprise me with the focus on job hopping so frequently for position advancement and/or pay increases

Mobile tech company Citizen is asking employees to submit nutrition and exercise data to find out whether happy and healthy workers are indeed more productive ones.
