Get Stuff Done by Doing This Stuff

Joshua Brown is The Reformed Broker. His blog is A+ and great fun, and he’s made a list of SEVEN WAYS to make 2013 your MOST PRODUCTIVE YEAR EVER! He wrote that headline with a smirk, which is why I like him.

ANYWAY, his hot tips are actually good and I feel inspired (kind of) after reading his list and MAYBE YOU WILL TOO?!?  Thing three is “change your listening habits,” and by that he means: Listen to rap in the morning. HE MAKES A GOOD CASE:  “I respect accordion skills and lyrical romanticism as much as the next guy—but whom do I want to emulate more in my business dealings each day—the Decemberists or Dr Dre? One of them is worth $260 million and just built and sold the Beats Audio headphone company as a side project. The other one is really great at tying scarves.”

Is he implying that Dr. Dre is not really great at tying scarves?

@stuffisthings Or lyrical romaticism?

Some good tips. I like the second one about turning off phone notifications. Actually, I liked it so much I decided to delete the facebook app from my phone. I don’t even like reading facebook updates (the only friends of mine who post are young moms and grouchy, overly political retired people), but because it keeps reminding me its there I look at it 3 or 4 times a day! Dumb!

I went on a three week vacation before I started my most recent job and turned off notifications to help me relax. I am NEVER turning them back on, trust me, it’s the best decision you’ll make this year.

The first step to a happy and productive 2013 is to immediately erase all vestiges of The Decemberists, Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers from your ipod.

@faustbanana OK sorry that was mean. I apologize to all fans of these bands who also read The Billfold™!!

What I meant to say is that listening to rap in the morning sounds like a good idea.

@faustbanana

I already see this. There is nothing funnier than a 7am train full of 20-something pasty cubicle dwellers listening to rap on their big expensive head phones.

@Morbo That scene from Office Space.
