I’m going to figure out a way so that this becomes what wakes me up in the morning. This is what makes want to be more. This is what I dream of.
I have a clear rhythm to my day and I’ll bet you do to. From 8am to noon on any given day, I can get more done than any 3 afternoons combined. It’s important to be aware of your natural cycle to maximize productivity. This is a reason why it’s difficult to schedule a meetingContinue reading “Bursts of super productivity”

The audio quality is shockingly bad in this video. This was on Feb 18th, at Ignite-DC. I’d like to do a new spin on this talk soon. This is an Ignite talk. If you’re not familiar with Ignite, the talks are all EXACTLY 5 mins. You get 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds.Continue reading “Inspiring kids by thinking big in space”
