I'LL GLADLY TRADE SITTING AT A DESK FOR LAYING ON THE BEACH
I am Currently attending XOXO Fest in Portland, which is An experimental festival celebrating independently-produced art and technology. Including cool people like Kevin Kelly from Wired Magazine, Hrishikesh Hirway from Song Exploder, Dan Harmon from Community and Anita Sarkeesian from the highly controversial FEMINIST FREQUENCY. In honor of all things tech, I thought I would share a few tools I currently use to automate my life.
MY BUSINESS AND LIFE PLAN
>> Sleep when I am tired, even at 3pm
>> Work when I have the drive, which is usually all hours
>> Create day and night
>> Be better than the time before, be it my left jab or editing a collection
>> Eat well and travel often
>> Go to the Beach on the daily
Here is how I am doing it. No secrets from my friends ;)
I use it to send my instagram photos to flickr and save insta likes to a folder on my google drive.
YOGA STUDIO // 2
I try to sweat every day and use this app when I can’t get to my Muay Thai training session. When I am physical I sleep better and enjoy food more.
EVERNOTE // 3
My coach put it best, calling it an “Idea junk drawer”. I save websites, ideas, blog drafts, and any thing that pops in my head.
THINGS // 4
Make lists, check that shit off. Stick to deadlines. Use it to organize your projects.
Spend, type it in, spend type it in. I suck at money, but this helps
1 PASSWORD // 6
Don’t be scared. DO it. It is better then Livingthedream69 for everything. Trust me.
TRIPCASE // 7
I am not one to print out boarding passes and organize it in a tidy folder. So not being a “planner” this helps me track my flights, hotels, car rentals, etc. It is so easy.
I am always trying to free up my time from tasks that I hate so I can make things instead. Try them out and let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions!
