Finally, You Can Enjoy The Super Bowl Again

Remember when the Super Bowl was fun to watch? I don’t know when, or how, but the Super Bowl has become less about the game and more about the spectacle around the game. It’s about the National Anthem, and the Halftime Show and the fireworks, and, most importantly, the commercials. In other words,…

Do More, With Less

We often hear about new productivity apps that will allow you to write notes that you can sync between devices, or apps that make scheduling easier and more intuitive. In other words, apps that will simplify our working experience by adding something to it. But what about the apps that will help us simplify our…

Remember the Man This Martin Luther King Jr. Day

With this Monday being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it would be easy for us to give you a guide of how to spend that time with family and friends, or doing hobbies, or just enjoying your day off of work. But this time around we want to do something a little different. This year,…

How To Get Back In The Swing Of Things

Before 2017, Let's Remember Some Of The Best Of 2016

It’s the holidays and I, like most of you, am on vacation and I won’t be putting out new blog posts until the first week of January, but what kind of friend would I be if I left you alone, with nothing to read, for the next 10 days? A bad friend, that’…

Find Balance During This, The Winter Solstice

Just a few short weeks ago we wrote about ways to combat the seasonal saddies and start smiling through the Winter. That post was necessitated because Winter was nigh and colder temperatures and much shorter days were coming with it. Sounds pretty bad, right?

You Should Get More Sleep. Here's How and Why

Remember earlier this week when we spoke about ways to be productively lazy? I want to focus on one part of that post in particular: sleep. Somewhere down the line, it became an accepted part of our culture to eschew sleep in favor of working. It became such a social currency for us that if…

Be Productive and Lazy?! Sign Me Up

This really is the most wonderful time of the year, but why? Is it because of the holiday spirit? What about the gifts? Or the music? These are all wonderful candidates for what makes this time of the year the best, but what about an often overlooked perk? What about just being able to be…
