I’ve gone through red, then orange…but finally settled on green a few years back because of my fondness for a certain ring-wearing superhero. Of course, I’m speaking of the Green Lantern. To be fair, there is just one Green Lantern. There are many. My …

An unorthodox way to pick my next project, but effective nonetheless. Have you ever tried doing something like this to choose your next self-driven project?
My daughter uses a paper fortune teller to tell our fortunes. It got me thinking: “What if I used a paper fortune teller to help me choose my next project?"

Great ideas here from my pal +Karl Staib...
 
I had just poured myself my third cup of coffee and I realized something very important. I remember because as I put the coffee to my lips I looked up at the clock. It was 11am on the dot.

I had accomplished nothing at all. I rebooted my computer. I visited with a few friends. I went to meeting that was cancelled at the last minute.

I'm making some changes to The +Productivityist Podcast starting in March...
Starting in March, The Productivityist Podcast will be moving to Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays. That means Patreon supporters at the $5+ level will get a sneak peek at each episode on Fridays, giving them time over the weekend to listen. Other changes coming are as follows: - The Patreon edition of the podcast will be "enhanced." That means you'll get some additional content that won't be shared with the regular edition of the podcast. In som...

Love the gamification ;) but obviously only really works when you don't have any priority projects ... which has rarely happened to me.

Writer - Talker - Productivityist
Introduction

I am a husband, father, writer, podcaster, speaker, and "productivityist".

In addition to writing for my personal weblog, Productivityist.com, I continue to contribute guest articles to several blogs on the topic of productivity, including The Huffington Post, GTD Times, and SUCCESS Magazine.

Prior to returning to full-time freelancing, I served as the Managing Editor at Lifehack, one of the top productivity blogs on the web. I've also been an editor at technology news site, The Next Web, and enjoyed a year-long stint as editor of the work-life balance blog, WorkAwesome.

I am also the author of "The Front Nine: How to Start the Year You Want Anytime You Want" from Diversion Books.

Along with my written work, I've given talks on productivity and technology, as well as several featured keynotes and workshops related to time, project and goal management. As a podcaster, I have created, produced and hosted several over the years. I currently co-host Mikes on Mics with Michael Schechter, a podcast that is part of the popular 5by5 network.

I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada with my amazing wife, daughter, and son.

Derek's work in local publications drew me to him, and I was exceedingly happy with the work he provided. He made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot, was open to my ideas and offered many killer ones of his own. If you're looking for a top-notch photographer, you can't go wrong with Derek Ford.
