10 things I’ve learned this year:
1. Learning to cook and eat more veggies isn’t that hard.
2. “Batching” tasks at work makes me significantly more productive and helps me stay focused.
3. I can do anything for 30 days in a row when I commit (log my diet, run a mile, write a blog post, listen to 30 minutes of an audiobook).
4. Rather than dramatic changes, multiple small and calculated changes could have a more drastic change. This can lead to a tipping point.
5. Automating your finances is one of the easiest and most effective ways to stop worrying about money.
6. When it comes to the average investor, low-cost index funds are the way to go. Take it from the founder of Vanguard, John Bogle.
7. Want to build trust? Just remember to focus on character and competence.
8. Meditating is for cool people, like chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin. Many high level performers engage in some sort of daily meditation practice to up their game.
9. I recently bought new pillows that give me better neck support. I was surprised how much good pillows can effect sleep quality. I knocked out for 8 hours straight the first night without waking up.
10. My new favorite pre-lunch snack: hard boiled egg with salt and pepper, and sriracha drizzled on avocado halves 😋
