Six Resources that Have Changed My Life

1. Coffitivity

Work with coffeeshop sounds in the background.

2. Ethan’s Private Stash of Really Good Reads

For one of my recent jobs, I spent a year combing the web for the best long form articles out there. This was the result: the very best reading on the web, curated by me.

Ideal audience: curious humans.

3. focus@will

I gotta have music when I work. Since all my favorite Pandora stations now repeat songs, I go here:

4. The Ridiculous Amazing List of Vocab Word Flashcards from Elite Prep

Why is it ridiculous amazing? I’ll just put it this way: the company spent a lot of money figuring out which words are likely to appear on your future standardized tests–SAT, ACT and AP–and it was nothing illegal, the company was just really thorough.

Increase your productivity.

And hear the words read aloud here, if you prefer. Listen while you work or as you go to sleep, as one of my colleagues does (no joke).

5. Meditation

That’s right: our own breath and mindfulness = best resource ever. Ever try meditation and fail? (Yeah, me too.) Here’s an eight-minute meditation exercise that features the most relaxing song ever. Or just listen to the songhere.

6. O*Net Online

Amazing resource for learning about different jobs and careers. Not sure what you want to study, or specific jobs exist in your field? Just type a search term like “medicine” into the box at the top right. You’ll learn a lot in a little time.

You don’t have to explain your business to anyone, unless you plan on doing business with them. And all they need to understand is their part in your business. People don’t listen to understand, they listen to reply, to give you their opinion. The thing is, that people who don’t get it, will never get it and the people that do get it, will never ask. These are the ones that will help you grow. You can’t spend your life walking people by the hand and explaining your actions every step of the way.
