👋 Hey there!
🚅 This is issue #24 of The Double E Bullet where I share two bullets of things to help you elevate your entrepreneurial journey so you work smart, not hard.
📖 Someday Maybe Later
Have you heard about a Some Day Maybe List? No, it’s not the catchy Michael Buble song but a really easy life hack to get all of the things you want done but you just can’t seem to find the time to do.
A Someday Maybe List allows you to capture all our ideas, however crazy they may seem, without a due date. Capturing these in a to do app/ notebook allows your brain to get free from the cognitive load its feeling from carrying all of those open loops.
Here’s a few examples from from my Someday Maybe list
- Write a book
- Ride a motorcycle from Dubai to London
- Sign up for improv classes
- Live / Work for two months in Bali
- Sign up for a ayahuasca retreat
While these sound like a pipe dream, this list serves me in two ways
- It’s a physical record of the things that are outside my ‘normal range’ of life
- These ideas that are now in queue (of sorts) and serve as a jumping off point that I use when I’m feeling a low / looking for my next exciting project.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
📱 For your everyday life decision making
Here’s a website you probably never knew existed.
It’s called Untools, and it’s a curated collection of mental models and frameworks that can help navigate the complexity of everyday life from decision making to to better communication to giving clear feedback to someone!
Say you were going to make a very important decision regarding adding a new service addition to your business in 2023; instead of doing the way you’re used to, you can use the Six Thinking Hats framework to help change things up and learn a whole new way to take a complex decision.
I’ve had to learn and re-learn the art of delegation several times. It’s different when you need to depend on team to get things done and resist the urge of doing it yourself. I published two videos with my learnings on the topic.
I hope you’ll learn a thing or two and while you’re there, consider subscribing and help me grow the channel 😈
