A tool to eliminate productivity roadblocks, coming to one’s senses and deciding to be young.

Hey !

A tool to eliminate productivity roadblocks, coming to one’s senses and deciding to be young.


Who doesn’t want to be more productive to achieve more or to have more time to hang out with family and friends?

Leading a business we constantly bet with our time. We decide what to do and what to avoid. If we are serious about productivity we often come up with new ideas of tools and rituals that will improve our well-being and effectiveness.

[“Come to one’s senses” - return to thinking or behaving sensibly and reasonably; recover consciousness. For example, I wish he'd come to his senses and stop playing around.

Life is killing us.

Some of us decide to be partners in that crime.  

We are killing ourselves slowly.

And I’m not talking about aging of the body, which is, to some extent, beyond our control.

I’m talking about aging of our spirit.

We decide to behave old. And choose to be old.

By using expressions like “good old days” or “I can’t make it” we instantly become old.

You may think I’m too young to know about it and I’m sure you are right.

But a 94-years old teacher, Flossie Lewis, knows what she’s talking about.

I had tears in my eyes while watching this video. Will you?
