It keeps you in touch with your subscribers, and it gives you a place to test out small ideas you can later grow into big ideas. I’ve been delivering my Love Mondays newsletter every week for more than 100 weeks (and you can sign up here).

This is the moment we’ve been waiting for. If you’ve been reading my income reports, you know I’ve been planning to one day offer my latest book, Mind Management, Not Time Management, for only $1.99.
BookBub has finally selected MMT for their exclusive Featured Deal, and will be sending it to a million people tomorrow. Nine months after releasing the book, this is the real “launch.” It has a shot at hitting the Wall Street Journal best-seller list.

I recently got a message from a reader, who said, “I don’t know if it’s meditation or you reaching a new level professionally, but I feel like your writing is on FIRE!” I do feel my writing has improved over the last year. They’re right to think the meditation I talked about on episode 246 has helped. If I had to pick one thing that has improved my writing, it’s starting to use the Zettelkasten method I talked about on episode 250. But I wouldn’t be able to manage my Zettelkasten if it weren’t for a recent breakthrough in how, physically, I write. It wouldn’t be possible without my new low-EMF computing setup. keep on reading »
