With so many different blogs on the Internet it’s difficult to know which ones are actually good. Sure, you can Google for “productivity blogs” and read each one that shows up on the first page, carefully comparing notes between the blogs, but who wants to do that? That takes valuable time that could be spent on reading the archives of one of the better blogs out there. So, through years of reading productivity blogs in all corners of the Internet, I’ve come across a few I think are beneficial to everyone in a diverse area of topics.
In fall of Junior year of college, at 6′ tall, I was 132 lbs. I was skinny. Really, really skinny. And I knew it. After complaining one day about my bony frame, I had someone tell me that I should lift weights. “Nah,” I replied, “I’m just one of those people who can’t gain weight.” Seemingly helpless, I accepted my fate. For all my life, I was going to look like a malnourished child. However, when I began crawling the web for productivity blogs, I stumbled across a method of weight lifting that helped people gain insane amounts of weight: High intensity training. In fact, Tim Ferriss, the New York Times bestselling author, gained 34 lbs. of muscle in one month. Ecstatic, I had found my holy grail. I was finally going to break free of my skinny frame.
When I was 13, I wanted to build a computer. It was a pretty simple goal: I wanted to buy the parts, assemble it, hope it worked, and then use it. 9 years later I’ve assembled, repaired and torn apart hundreds of computers and there’s one thing I’ve noticed when teaching people about building computers: they’re amazed how easy it is to build your own PC and how much money it can save you. With computer parts decreasing in price yearly, now’s a better time than ever before to assemble your own computer and saves hundreds–if not thousands–of dollars.
