Category: Productivity & Goals

Welcome to the Productivity & Goals category! You have only two options in life. Either you follow your own goals, or you follow the goals of other people. If you don’t build and follow your own dream life, someone else will try to engage you or hire you to help build theirs.

There’s nothing wrong with helping other people achieve their dreams, but you absolutely want to make sure you also have your own goals and that you live your own dream life.

You want to wake up every day with determination and go to bed with deep satisfaction. You want to be maximally creative during the day and produce, deliver and capture as much value on the markets as possible.

You want to make sure you have many hobbies and personal goals that empower you and make your life worthwhile. It feels so good to be productive, to see the fruits of hard and smart work, and cross things off your vision list.

Blog posts under the Productivity & Goals category will help you make sure that you don’t only have a hunch of what your dream life could be, but to carefully define your dream life and build a superior life strategy and plan for how you will achieve all of your dreams.

Reading blog posts under this category will help you achieve a completely new level of personal performance – an elite productivity and goal achieving oriented daily life, while enjoying the path and hard work.

Many of the productivity and goal setting techniques described in the blog posts are inspired by lean startup and agile development approaches in business. If companies aren’t productive, they go out of business.

Superior innovation and organization are thus an important part of every successful company. So, there is no better way to learn how to be productive than from successful companies.
