The road to success requires clarity, action, and confronting your blocks. Repeatedly.
So far, I’ve focused on making easy-to-use tools that help you plan and create what you want. (Who am “I”?)
You might think this is just a plain little monthly agenda and a couple of self-help books. “Oh, great, more motivational nonsense.” I call that “productivity porn.” It’s an inexhaustible fountain, and my patience for it is limited.
What’s solid advice for someone in the C-suite can be good for someone in coveralls to adopt (and vice versa), but each needs to hear how it’s relevant to them. When advice is relevant, you learn how to do things differently and you feel validated and supported.
With concise and actionable tools I designed from practice and research, you can bypass “analysis paralysis.”
The tools are a scaffold on which you can hang your own process and ambitions. I made the template; use it your way.
What I’ve done here is bullshit-free and 98% Woo-free (that is, free of spiritualist leanings). But it’s not commitment-free. Because to do anything worthwhile in life, you have to commit!
Why this is important
People who’ve learned to trust themselves and direct themselves are happier and more collaborative. They can see what needs to be done and step in and do it. (Responsibility! It’s a good thing.) They inspire others to do more. This is where self-management becomes project management.
A lot of awesome, necessary things aren’t getting done because people don’t know how — and sometimes don’t have the organizational skills and charisma — to pull people and resources together for things bigger than themselves.
This is how good ideas get murdered in their infancy. Everyone who has a new idea struggles with this.
So I’m researching to design what could become a collaboration space. I see it as a necessity because people need self-starting and open-access ways to create meaning, support each other, and address the problems they see.

Why it’s a .org site (for now): a social enterprise makes money and provides a social benefit. It will likely serve the non-profit community as well.The Latin suffix -ica means ‘a collection of.’ This website is a collection of projects.
