Always Be Creating

Always Be CreatingHey what’s up guys!

Just like I said on my previous post (Being Consistent And Never Looking Down On Yourself) I have decided to start publishing new content regularly on Tuesdays.

The main reason is so you know when to visit the blog although I may also post stuff in between Tuesdays.

It was incredibly difficult for me to get this article published early so that’s why I’m publishing late at night (it’s still Tuesday though).

Anyway enough of explanations, what do I actually mean by always be creating?

Always Be Creating (ABC)

I can’t really remember where I got this from but the idea is that no matter what you do every day, you always be creating.

Sounds really basic yet many of us won’t (or can’t) follow this simple rule.

And the reason for this is that computers aren’t what they used to be back in the day.

Allow me to explain this a little better…  Continue Reading →

How To Avoid Being Overwhelmed With Your To-Do Lists

how to avoid being overwhelmedHey what’s up my friend?

On my latest post I was talking about How To Get It Done in the sense of making things happen.

You know what I’m talking about right…?

Avoiding procrastination!

(that has to be a pretty shitty nation btw but enough of my bad jokes…)

We’re already on April, the first quarter of the year is already long gone but I did manage to do a few interesting things anyway though:

But after quickly analyzing what I have done, my activities aren’t that close to the list I published for my 2013 Goals. Continue Reading →

How To Get It Done

get it doneThis article is all about getting *it* done.

So what is “it”?

Well, whatever needs to get done in order to make actual progress.

Here is the deal…

We all have to-do lists.

And we all have fears to overcome.

If you are reading this and you have a specific task (or set of tasks) that need to get done and you keep dragging them day after day, then you clearly have a procrastination problem.

(I’m not pointing the finger at you, it happens to me all the time too so it’s a “we” kind of problem)

But before I actually tell you how to get it done let’s go back a week ago… Continue Reading →

Productivity Hack: The Lockdown Method

Kris Mainieri's Lockdown MethodOkay guys, today’s post is going to be a little bit different to what you’re used to see on the blog.

I have an amazing productivity hack I learned from Kris Mainieri and I want to share it with you here.

But instead of writing about it, I thought about doing a video testimonial for Kris since he has personally helped me overcome a lot of barriers I had when I was getting started and struggling online and he stills contributes by providing great value to my Internet Marketing career.

His advice on important decisions has been key but most important of all, his friendship and support are literally endless and for that, I really feel blessed.

So without any further ado, here you go…  Continue Reading →

Running A Half Marathon In Just Four Weeks

sergio felix half marathon culiacanThe past weeks have been enlightening to say the least and here’s a quick recap of what I have been doing…

I finished a training from David Walker’s called 30 Day Marketer.

It literally changed my overall perception of marketing blogs for good and I’m really grateful to have been part of that first generation as well.

You’ll see the changes around here very soon.

I also finished reading Tim Ferriss’ book, the famous Four Hour Work Week.

Even though I disagree with many aspects on the book, I also learnt a ton of new things and I highly recommend you to read it as long as you don’t consider it to be some kind of THE marketing Bible because it’s definitely not.

This book is not just about traveling, working four hours per week or ‘hacking the system’ as many young entrepreneurs like to say these days…

It’s a very concise book filled with many different topics, great resources and it’s honestly highly entertaining and I think anyone interested in building an online business should learn a lot from it.  Continue Reading →

Keeping Yourself Accountable

keeping yourself accountableI shouldn’t even be releasing this blog post but you know what, it’s honestly very important for both of us and yes, I mean you and me.

We need to keep ourselves accountable right NOW.

I have been in product creation mode for a few days and I have discovered plenty of things that went under planned.

I did use a huge mind map to create my product but guess what?

As soon as I was recording slides and the how-to’s I was getting new ideas that were completely in tune with the training so I had to include them.

This of course, resulted in a much bigger course than I have thought in the first place and now I’m not seeing when it’s going to end.

But fear not, I’m still repeating myself to not include stuff that’s not related to what I’m trying to teach and yeah, the training is getting a bit more extensive but I want to be able to deliver a cool training anyway so I’m OK with that.

Keeping Accountable Video

I shot this video at almost 2:00 am today and even though it is a bit long I do talk about the things I have bumped into while creating this training course.  Continue Reading →

Product Creation Effectiveness

product creation effectivenessHey my friend, I don’t have much for you today apart from this video I just recorded.

I was checking out the dates of the first files I created for a product I’ve been wanting to do for a while and I can’t believe it has been MONTHS since I first got started with it.

Another friend of mine, Dan Sumner has created at least one full blown product in this time and is about to release a second product and is currently working on some other alternate projects.

This just shows that being effective at product creation is also something we all should aim for.

And this is the summary of what I did before and what I’m currently doing right now.  Continue Reading →

How To Organize Yourself Like a Pro With Less Than $5 Bucks

How To Organize Yourself With A Monthly PlannerIt’s finally Monday again (I love starting the week!)

And here I am as always, trying to improve my productivity and keep myself organized.

A few days ago I was talking about how to organize your gmail inbox using gmail labels and gmail filters.

Well I just ‘discovered’ a new item that is going to help me quite a LOT to keep me even more organized now.

The Monthly Planner

The reality is that I needed to buy some double layer DVDs.

And yesterday after some roaming around the local office store, I found some incredible whiteboards.

Magnetized, non-magnetized, black boards, fluorescent boards, digital boards, I was in whiteboard heaven.

I did not go crazy though and decided to bring home one tiny 30x40cm whiteboard (monthly planner) with me.

A Few Ideas For A Monthly Planner

From the top of my head, you can use this for:

  • Important Webinars
  • Skype Interviews
  • Business Chat Meetings
  • Blog Schedule Posting
  • Product Launches
  • Product Development
  • Book Creation
  • Software Projects
  • Etc

Really, you can do just about anything as long as you consider the size of your whiteboard.  Continue Reading →

Cold Shower Therapy

cold shower therapyThe reason I’m doing this update is because we basically tend to follow routines.

Some people have good routines and some others don’t.

The important thing is to learn how to break them when they are bad.

So being the proactive guy that I am, I made a very stupid video today with my first cold shower therapy.

I didn’t edit anything, I just trimmed the actual shower parts (they weren’t sexy anyway)

The main reason for not editing anything is because I just realized I’m a complete idiot when it comes to video editing.

Seriously, I’m not joking, I need to learn this.

That’s the only reason… so just go watch now.  Continue Reading →

Decluttering Time

unclutteringIt’s decluttering time baby!

I have been going around in circles for some days.

Going back and forth switching from Thesis to Genesis themes and viceversa.

I’s a really long boring story but it has a goal in the end, trust me.

Digital Nomads

I have been reading a lot of stuff about digital nomadism lately and I mean some massive reading on the subject.

Topics on how to live a more meaningful life with less things and all that stuff that sounds so hippie-related in our XXI century.

Quick out of place disclaimer…

If the first thing that springs to mind is a 1960′s hippie whenever you read digital nomad I have the same exact impression as you do but apparently it has nothing to do with that, it’s just the new age entrepreneural life.

These guys (digital nomads) can do a lot of stuff I really don’t think I would ever be capable of.
