Visual Pathways – Interview with author Michael Kribus

The author of Visual Pathways explains this new productivity system.

Growing up, I didn’t play with a whole lot of store-bought toys. It’s not that my parents didn’t provide enough tools to stimulate my young mind. In fact, it was quite the opposite: my parents had given me the best toy a young boy could have. I was raised in the country. Living in the… Read more

As I write this it’s early Saturday morning. I’ve got a cup of coffee, a quiet house, and I’m in the zone. You know that place where you mind is free, yet you’re blowing through tasks with the focus of a ninja on ginseng? That’s the zone. I’m starting to think that Saturdays may be… Read more

Our elementary school had an incubator where we artificially heated chicken eggs until they eventually hatched, in our very own classroom. Every day we’d all be sure to gather round the incubator and check the progress of the eggs. And when the… Read more

Spontaneity is something that many, many people don’t like. Why? Because they equate spontaneity with surprises, and nobody likes surprises while they’re doing their job. This rings true for CEO’s to Stay-at-home Moms. Routines are what we productive people crave! But we can learn a thing or two from being a tad more spontaneous, especially… Read more

Since it’s Monday, I thought I’d lighten the mood and list some things that I do while working at home that I probably wouldn’t share with anybody else.
