Marc and Angel Hack Life - Practical Tips for Productive Living
The most beautiful smiles are often the ones that once struggled through the tears. One thing I can say for sure: September 2008 through December 2009 was an extremely hard time for us. In that seemingly short 15-month timespan, Angel lost her breadwinning job (which drastically affected our livelihood), we lost a mutual close friend to cardiac arrest, and then, just as we were starting to get back on our feet, Angel’s brother passed away unexpectedly as well. As you can imagine, each of these losses felt horrific. And when stacked back to back to back, it was sometimes difficult just to get out of bed in the morning – to make even the slightest bit of progress on anything at all. But as days turned into weeks, months and years, we pressed forward, stronger and with a greater understanding and respect for life.

Dont Ever Let This One Thing Crush You And Your Dreams I’ve tried pretty much everything in the way of increasing productivity… I’ve created to do lists, checklists, and goals for each day. I’ve dedicated special blocks of every day to writing, email, product creation, you name it. I’ve read books about how to maximize productivity, how to get more done in less time, while at a higher quality. Of everything I’ve read and out of everything I’ve tried, the greatest ally, tactic, or tip I’ve come across thus far, was given to me by Steven Pressfield, in his books, The War of Art 12 Ways to Fall Madly in Love with Life By falling in love with life, we fall in love with ourselves (and vice versa).
