This site transforms any old website with a list of links into an RSS Feed.
I keep trying (and failing) at cleaning out my photos on my camera roll. Its a drag to do. But no more! Enter the Swipe Wipe app. It lets you swipe left to delete and swipe right to keep a photo. (yes, like dating apps!) I love it! I just started using it and it has freed up so much space on my phone. So simple, so effective.
Wow. My Mind seems impressive. Definitely trying this.
ps: OMG! The onboarding is a piece of art. The entire experience is a dream. YES!
I just now stumbled upon Tanya Moushi’s book Love is The Business Plan. The title made me gasp and I of course instantly downloaded it. So, while I haven’t read it yet, I am enamored by this video in which Tanya shares how she organized and wrote her book using Notion and Apple Pages. Love love love when people share how they organize / do their work. She also shares the template here.
(I love this internet so much! Gah!)
The site Make My Drive Fun is pretty darn cool. Go enter your starting and end point and see the magic unfold.
I had to get a form notarized yesterday. And I am sure many of you agree, finding a local notary is a total pain. My neighbor Marious suggested I use notarize.com. It connects you with a notary somewhere in the country, via video call. First you answer a bunch of questions that make sure you are who you say you are and then there is a real human notary, talking to you, via video conferencing. It was like magic! I totally squealed! So easy! So quick!
I have recently started using Notion. It’s no exaggeration when I say it’s life changing. For the first time I ever I feel like I have one place to organize my life and work in a simple and intuitive way. Love falling down rabbit holes on YouTube of people sharing their own personal way of using Notion.
In 2010 I accidentally, for funsies, created a simple to-do app with my studiomate Cameron Koczon. We jokingly called it TeuxDeux. This trusty companion has kept us organized ever since!
A few weeks after building it, and just Cameron and I using it, friends kept asking to get in on it. We decided to make it available to the public and has since attracted an incredibly loyal and committed fan base of humans who love to cross things off.
The concept is simple: Make an app that feels as close to a paper list as possible, but that is with you at every step of the way: On the go on your phone but also ready to keep you organized when you work on your computer. (The secret is to set your browser landing page to teuxdeux.com so you’re being reminded what you need to do every time you open a browser window!)
If you’re familiar with TeuxDeux you’ll notice the new and improved user interface on the app and the much faster and reliable syncing thanks to a complete rebuild of the back-end.
Big thanks to Kevin Kelly for sharing Am I Part of The Problem? It’s an interactive (and empathic) tool that will walk you through how to apologize. Kevin also describes in his post: “It also helps you understand the difference between intent and impact and the different ways you can make amends — direct, indirect or by example. It’s not designed to make you feel better about yourself, but instead is a useful practice in accountability.”
I loved this video in which Tim Ferriss breaks down how he reads and synthesizes books. Super interesting.
Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. Here’s your alternative to buying books on Amazon! Yes, please!
It seems like every meeting or online gathering is currently happening on Zoom. The platform is absolutely impressive but also takes a bit getting used to. Alexa knows a lot about running Zoom events and put together a guide for you, with checklists and all. She created the document originally to help our CreativeMornings hosts to move their events online. Here you go!
ps: My favorite functionality is the break out rooms. Check that chapter!
I love this step by step guide how to achieve Inbox Zero in Gmail to start the year out fresh.
Happy our birthday to you!
I keep my TeuxDeux as the browser landing page, which means, every time I open a browser window I am being reminded what I should be focusing on. Whatever you don’t check off today, will automatically roll over to the next day. You see the week at a glance and it’s delightfully simple. And in the ‘someday section’ below I keep lists like shopping, movies I want to watch, gift ideas for the kids, etc
Try it for free for 30 days! And if you do, do me a favor and enable the flying cat in the settings. You’ll see!
ps: We have an iOS app, but no Android yet. Someday!
