Most people know that I highly recommend Trello, the super customisable, totally free (yes, free!) online task management tool for simply getting things done. My clients and I have been using it for years and it makes a real difference.

This is a great article about getting more out of Trello by using IFTTT and Zapier, workflow automation apps that connect to other websites, apps, and devices.

If you seriously want to organise and automate your work better, give this a read and implement even one of the recommendations given. Especially if you're already using Trello.

"Fall In Love With Systems... goals are good for planning your progress and systems are good for actually making progress... slow down and make consistent, methodical progress rather than chasing sexy goals for a few weeks and then flaming out."

This is so true! With good systems in place, goals can be achieved effortlessly!

Here's a review of 10 top pour-over coffee makers, complete with links to Amazon where you can buy them or read further reviews.

Pour-over coffee makers aren't as good as proper espresso machines like we have at Ginza Hub, but they are quite good for making coffee at home.

Terry Crews explains how intermittent fasting keeps him in awesome shape.

This is the same intermittent fasting that I'm doing while I'm here in Australia, although my "feeding window" is a bit longer than Terry's strict 8 hours. I'm basically eating between sun up and sun down, following the circadian rhythm, which is more like 10~12 hours. Let's see how my body fat percentage, energy levels and sleep quality change over the coming weeks.

A couple of my friends have already joined me in this. Anyone else?

Impostor syndrome - “referring to high-achieving individuals marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a‘fraud.’”

In short, when you experience impostor syndrome you worry others will discover you’ve been “faking it” all this time. You do something great, but you feel you'll be found out, instead of praised. You feel somehow undeserving of the success you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

I know this issue affects a lot of new entrepreneurs. Good to see an article that suggests ways to banish it.

Oh hell yeah!

"The life of an Essentialist is a life of meaning. It is a life that really matters.

The life of an Essentialist is a life lived without regret. If you have correctly identified what really matters, if you invest your time and energy in it, then it is difficult to regret the choices you make. You become proud of the life you have chosen to live.

Will you choose to live a life of purpose and meaning, or will you look back on your one single life with twinges of regret? If you take one thing away from this book, I hope you will remember this: whatever decision or challenge or crossroads you face in your life, simply ask yourself, 'What is essential?' Eliminate everything else."

Ok, this is it! I just dropped $150-odd to find out how Scottish I really am, or am not, through rigorous DNA testing.

To my wonderful African American friends (hell, to ALL of my non-Asian friends,) I highly recommend you take advantage of this amazing technology to find out where you really are from.

Personally, I can't wait!

While I'll never call myself a physician of any kind, I studied biology at university, I have a certificate in kinesiology, I worked in the chiropractic industry as a BDM for 3 years, I co-founded a business called Optimal Health Works, and I'm currently enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I'll graduate as a Health Coach in May 2017. So I know a thing or two about building a healthy life, and I'm very keen to share that with anyone who's interested. Contact me and let me help you live in the state of healthful, high performance, high mental clarity that my clients and I enjoy.

As entrepreneurs often running our shows on our own, we need to constantly guard against unproductive distractions, especially when working from home (or even at a co-working space!) Check out these 5 ways to stay productive at home, but pretty much anywhere!

Why Entrepreneurs Fail: 18 Business Winners Explain Their Biggest Fails. This is a good article for any entrepreneur. I especially recommend people take note of Fail #8: Dividing Focus Between Too Many Projects. In my opinion this fail kills more startups than anything else, aside from possibly cashflow neglect.
