Eleven Areas in Your Life That Can Benefit From More Structure

Adding structure to everything that you do each day will help you achieve more, feel better, and have more time for the important things.

One of my principles is Bring Order to Chaos. I believe that by adding structure to most of the important things that you do, you can become more efficient and productive.

Daily Design – A Manual for the Special Days

Habits are powerful and dangerous. Combining habits with the law of manifestation can help you do daily designs for the special days in your life.

There are a lot of normal days in our lives. The days where we wake up, go to work, only to increment the progress bar. To excel during these days, you need a Daily Routine.

Days when you need to give your 100% on a workshop, a training, or a summit. For these days, you need a special routine which I call Daily Design.

The Habit of Embracing Change

Change is everywhere and it is here to stay. You can either suffer constantly when the next change hits you, or you can adopt a habit of embracing it.

Change is a constant factor in our everyday lives. Now, when the whole world is practicing social distance and/or quarantine, in a situation that only a few anticipated, change is even more relevant. But we, humans, are not built flexible. Most of our brains’ efforts are spent to find a safe behavior and make us stick to it. This is a challenge because nothing is safe in times of uncertainty and change.

In this article I will show you how to adopt a habit of embracing change. There are many things that can help you be successful in your personal and professional life, but this skill is going to make you successful at almost anything. As we get further into the twenty-first century, I believe that there will be two skills which will be more and more valuable. Learning how to learn fast and learning how to embrace change.
