Self-imposed deadlines are fake. Stop doing that. The core problem: You work on things that don't align with your values. No productivity hack is going to fix that for you.

Harsh Truth: Many daily lives are wasted focusing on other people's dreams. Stop being the spectator.

Digital Transformation 101: You never start with technology. First, define your "Why?" Then, make sure the human beings in your organization understand that "Why" Your Digital Strategy is doomed to fail without solid purpose and people.
People say technology is too rigid and inhumane. I say technology can illuminate the uniqueness and traditions that empower humans.
Repeat after me: "I'm not downloading another productivity app until I've finished 3 things on my to-do list."
Stop watching so much Netflix and start watching the world around you.

Underrated hack to turbocharge your career: Don't run away from work you hate. Instead, run towards the work you love.
Oh no. @TwitterSpaces I get it. I know what you are trying to do w/ the podcasts, etc. But I loved just clicking the spaces tab to "see what's live right now to join the conversation." You took serendipity away and now it feels too impersonal. :(
Google Maps decimated your inner compass. Wander more, navigate less.
Life is a never ending cycle of recreating yourself. You wake up a new person every day. You decide what you will be today.

You don't need to slog at job that you don’t like, even if the pay is high. Go find: - A job that you love - Work on your craft - Save and Invest as much as you can You will look forward to it every day While securing your financial future.

Spent the day at @MITMuseum doing some network “optimization” —- completely unnecessary but very satisfying. Most of my time I’m thinking big picture, but I also believe leaders in tech need to keep their hands dirty or else become irrelevant
The real flex: tell your haters to "have a nice day" and actually mean it.
I'm most impressed by people who never announce their goals and then quietly achieve them.
This will be epic.@erodley is exactly who I have in mind when I think about big thinkers re: the intersection of humans and technology and digital+physical experience twitter.com/i/spaces/1ypKd…
Stages of learning: • Novice: "I know everything!" • Beginner: "I know many things." • Advanced: "I don't know much." • Genius: "I don't know, but I'm dying to find out."
This is amazing. So valuable and they are updated it in almostreal time. Clearest visualization of the chaotic disruptions I've seem... Coming from an individual citizen. Bravo. Future of transportation is in the hands of people, not beuracracies twitter.com/transitalex/st…
People: "I never get anything done." Also People: "Let me spend 18 hours on Twitter looking for productivity hacks."
That moment of panic when you see "8:30" out of the corner of your eye and think it's 8/30 and you only have 33 days before @MITMuseum is open to the public... ...not that 41 days is any less terrifying 😱
This is going to be 🔥!... Going to be diving into the future of immersive experience w@erodleyy this week. No holds barred, ... We are going to get into good examples and the horrible mistakes #musetechhtwitter.com/i/spaces/1ypKd…s
When your technology vision fails to inspire others, ask yourself: "Have you built empathy so that you feel their problems?”
Want to level up your brain? I've increased my reading to 4 books per week, and it's been a game-changer. You can read 5x faster (and retain comprehension) by using speed reading techniques:

Reading faster gives you access to more insight, inspiration, and understanding. It takes lots of practice, but it's worth it! If you found this helpful, please retweet the first tweet below: twitter.com/davidnunez/sta…
Tldr; how to read faster 1. Read less 2. Fast modes 3. Environment 4. Make a map 5. Power words 6. No mind talking 7. Read with fingers 8. Banish boring books 9. 20/10 rule for resting 10. Summarize your findings
10. Summarize to a friend Immediately after reading a chapter, stop and summarize (out loud) what you just read. Tell a friend - or tell a voice recorder. Explain it like you would to a 5-year old. Simpler is better - if you can simplify, you can understand.
9. Follow the 20/10 rule 20 minutes of focused reading 10 minutes of break Our brains can only sustain this effort for short bursts before needing a reset.
8. Bail out at the first sign of boredom You don't owe the author anything - don't waste your time on poor writing that doesn't teach you something new. There will always be other books to read.
7. Snake your finger Drag your finger down the page in a zig-zag pattern. Your finger controls the pace. Always move forward. Fingers read.
6. Get that voice out of your head Don't "subvocalize" as you read - sounding out the words in your head as you read is just slamming the brakes on your reading speed. This is the hardest thing to unlearn. There's no way around this. This takes practice.
5. Focus on power words When you are reading, look out for the keywords: - Ignore filler words (ex. articles, "a" "the") - Nouns > verbs > adjectives > adverbs - domain-specific words are signals - note new words
4. Create a roadmap Look at the table of contents. Understand the chapter titles. Make an outline. Skim bold headlines. Review illustrations. It's easier to go faster when you know where you are headed.
All the usual focus hacks work here. - caffeine - sleep better - make it a habit - reduce multitasking - turn off distractions
3. Set up your environment for speed Speed reading is work. It's all about focused learning. Foster a laser-focused, professional mode. i.e. Work at your desk instead of in a cozy bed
However, when I want to savor a book, slowly, I tend to pick up a physical book so I can luxuriate in each turn of a page. Pick the right format for your goal.
Audio books are great for interstitial moments - commutes, walks, vacuuming the house. Not all books are great for it, though - especially if you want to take notes on something. Self-help & some fiction (if well acted) works great in audio for me. E-Books are perfectly fine.
2. Choose fast consumption modes Audio books at 2.5x speed. "But that's not reading!" I'm not trying to impress you. I'm trying to learn something.
1. Read less to read more Your filter for books should be razor thin. You have a list of 100 books you think you should read. I promise you _maybe_ only 1 of them is worth your time. The fastest way to finish a book is not to read it.
Research shows that there is a trade-off between speed and accuracy when reading. However, most books give only 20% new knowledge; the rest is filler. By speed reading, you identify and skim the most valuable info from a book. Here's how:
Warning: This is not for pleasure reading. This is not for 100% comprehension and recall. You shouldn't speed read if your job requires remembering every detail in a book. These techniques are for busy people who want to introduce efficient learning techniques into their lives.
