I a big fan of using Evernote to digitally store almost everything that I may ever need to recall. Good idea, restaurants I want to visit, meeting notes, etc. One limitation of Evernote is it’s lack of simultaneous editing of notes. Fortunately now, LiveMinutes helps to solve that problem as well as gives you a central location to work on projects with your team. You can put all your team content in a central workspace: build todo-lists, share documents, annotate visuals, run conference calls (perfect for teams on the go), all in one place.
You can get started with LiveMinutes FREE until December. Check it out today.

Two traveling monks reached a river where they met a young woman. Wary of the current, she asked if they could carry her across. One of the monks hesitated, but the other quickly picked her up onto his shoulders, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other bank. She thanked him and departed.
As the monks continued on their way, the one was brooding and preoccupied. Unable to hold his silence, he spoke out.
“Brother, our spiritual training teaches us to avoid any contact with women, but you picked that one up on your shoulders and carried her!”
“Brother,” the second monk replied,
“I set her down on the other side, while you are still carrying her.”
~Based on an autobiographical story by Japanese master Tanzan, 1819-1892
One of the best pieces of coaching I have ever received is to let go of all judgement. Judgement of others, but more importantly judgement of yourself and the things around you. When you let go of your judgments then the world becomes a very simple place. Take things for what they are, just a small point in time on a life long journey. Don’t dwell on things too long or else you might miss something.
Success comes in many forms. Those that are seen as super successful are really just as normal as the rest of us except that they do a few important things well more often than not.

Tomorrow kicks off the Whole Life Challenge, an 8-week, no holds barred, personal challenge to see what sort of impact you can have on your health, fitness, and daily lifestyle habits. It’s a game played online with your friends, family, and anyone that will help you be accountable, and trains you to stay “awake”… to make daily choices that support your long-term health, life and vitality.
It’s a great way to get back on track after the summer season and focus on what’s important.

I am a big fan of productivity. Probably more than actually being productive I like to try out new productivity apps and methods. After testing almost every app on the market, I finally settled on Nozbe. It perfectly follows a Getting Things Done methodology. And does so simply without having to come up with work arounds or being so cumbersome that you don’t want to use.
Here is a short introductory video on how to use the app:
If you would like to get started with Nozbe yourself, you can try it out for free here.
The free version only allows 5 Projects or Categories so you will likely want to upgrade but it is well worth it. Also, if you are planning or working together with a team, the ability to delegate and keep track of tasks is a nice feature.
Lastly, if you want to learn more about Getting Things Done, Nozbe’s founder, Michael Sliwinski, has put together a nice course that explains the basics.
Comment below with your favorite productivity app and why you like it.
