  • Kindle

    As a long fan of hardcover books, I was always tempted by e-books readers but fought the urge to get another digital thing. You know, less screen time whenever possible.

  • The beauty of cheap products

    No one likes cheap products. We all want high-quality ones, and we want to feel the joy of owning them.

  • A simple idea to reduce procrastination

    Like every human being, I used to procrastinate a lot. Dishes? Nah. Cleaning something? Nah. Folding clothes? Nah… I knew it’s wrong, but I couldn’t help it. My body was against me.

  • Adopting the PARA system

    It’s been a while since I’ve been active online. The last few weeks were hectic as too many things were going on at the same time. The majority on a personal level. My to-do list was full. I felt I was doing a million tasks a day. And I felt unproductive. My head was working […]

    Why software engineers fail at building online businesses

    I enjoy being a software developer. I can open my laptop, write some lines of code, and turn my ideas into reality. I feel that I can do anything I want, without much involvement from outsiders. That’s why I’ve been trying to build online businesses, just like a big chunk of software engineers. I built […]

Well, here they are: The ladders of wealth creation – Nathan Barry This is my all time favorite article about wealth creation. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about […]

  • My recurring Todoist tasks

    I bet you already know that I use Todoist for everything, it’s my personal assistant. If not, give it a try! I hope you’ll like it as I do. One of the best usages of Todoist is recurring tasks.
