How To Invest In Yourself; A Framework For Changing Your Life!

From medium.com:

My framework for getting places, accomplishing things and living in a way that makes me happy.

This isn’t a bullshit, head in the clouds, you can do it if you just *believe*post. There’s plenty of those out there. I’m not going to write another one.

A note taking app or notebook

A spreadsheet app (Airtable is amazing)

A browser for research

A calendar or calendar app

1. Write A List Of 100 Things.

I have a list of 100 things I’m going to do in my life. It’s not a bucket list, it’s not things I wish I could do — it’s things I really am going to do.
