Office Hacks: The Best Thing With The Macbook Air?...
I’ve upgraded from a MacBook Pro to MacBook Air. If you carry your computer around a lot like I do, loosing that extra weight is actually pretty awesome. When I carry it around, it’s like I don’t carry a computer at all and I’ve already noticed how my shoulders are less stiff. As for style, I can also recommend the P.A.P. laptop cover. It’s thin, light and...
Office Hack: Shortcuts To Favorite Documents
I’m an inspiration-driven person. What this means is that I must do everything I can not to loose my inspiration when I’m working. Since the Mac Office programs sucks at templates, I’ve had serious issues with this. The company has a folder on the Dropbox with document templates, but I have my own way of structuring and working, so if I’m about to create let’s say...
Data-Driven Life: Tracking Weight With Withings
I’m determined to start tracking life data more vigorously. One step is of course to start tracking weight, BMI and stuff like that. The Withings scale does exactly that and that’s why I bought myself this scale some time ago. You should stand on it with your bare feet, because it sends a weak electrical current through your body to measure body fat. Pretty scare, actually. It also...

GTD: 10 Inbox Zero Tactics
I’ve now implemented Inbox Zero. It sure took me a while. Here’s how I made it work for me: 1. Email that I can take care about directly, I other do, reply or delegate. Then I move them into the Archive folder. 2. I used to have a lot of different folders. It was really boring sorting emails. Now I only have the Archive folder and the super fast search function in Apple’s Mail...
Office Hack: Key Takeaways From Reading Rework
One of my colleagues gave me a tip about this book, Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. Yes, they are the founders of 37signals, a company which all of you hardcore GTD-enthusiast knows about. So, I got myself the ebook and in the spirit of sharing, here’s my key takeaways: 1. “Planning is guessing.” Yes, too many people worry about long-term planning. So...

Lucid Dreaming: Slow Start
Pulled an all-nighter, lots of work to be done. No sleep, no dreams and a lost night for the project. Dammit.
Lucid Dreaming: The Plan
I realize that I’m starting from scratch. First order of business is really to start remembering dreams. I might be able to experiment with REM-sleep, certain extracts, sleep monitors and things like that, but I don’t know if it’ll come to that. The first week I will focus on just forcing myself to remember dreams directly when waking up—and to write them down. Simultaneously...
Lucid Dreaming: I Remembered A Dream
I remembered a dream this morning. Entered it into my dream journal. I was riding a taxi, alone in the backseat. And then I can’t remember anything else. I snoozed and tried to slide back into the dream, but no. Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Lucid Dreaming: The First Night
Fuck. I set the alarm for 7am. Instead of reaching for the black book beside the bed, I reached for the snooze button on my iPhone. And somehow pressed “off”. Woke up 9am, late for my 8.30am meeting.
Lucid Dreaming: The Moleskine Notebook
Ok, so I need a dream journal. I need it because I don’t remember my dreams. And the way to start remember your dreams, which is the first basic step to take, is to force yourself to remember them the minute you wake up. And when you can recollect anything from any dream, you have to write it down. Why do you have to write it down? I’m no brain expert, but from listening to self-help...
Lucid Dreaming: Getting Started
Have you ever had a dream and suddenly you realized that you are in fact dreaming? With some training, it’s possible to stay in the dream and actually shape the story as you move along. Think Inception. Step 1. First you need to remember your dreams. Place a notebook beside your bed and when you wake up, you write down what you remember. In the beginning you’ll be happy to remember...
Lucid Dreaming: The Starting Point
I’ve always wanted to fly like superman. But how? Lucid dreaming is a well-documented phenomenon. I’ve experienced it myself a couple of times. It was wonderful. I woke up within the dream, becoming conscious during the dream and understanding, “hey, I’m actually dreaming right now”. Once I realized I was dreaming, I simply decided not to wake up. And suddenly, I...
