The beauty of white noise for my focus – Red Lemon Club

I’ve always been hypersensitive and can get overwhelmed by thinking. I can be wholly incapacitated physically, even though a party’s going on in my head. So I like to work in cafes and public spaces to avoid losing my mind by myself in my room. But in these places I can get fidgety and distracted, …

‘I would get so much more done if social media didn’t exist’ – Red Lemon Club

We’re drowning in distractions. If only that damn phone would stop beeping at me, then I’d get some work done. Can’t YouTube…you know…just not exist, so I can finally find my passion in peace? It would be so much easier to be productive if Instagram stopped spewing out so many glorious pictures. Techy stuff is …

This is how showing up every day will change you – Red Lemon Club

It is hard to move out of the darkness. To cross the chasm into being recognised, following years spent in the unknown. To make a living from our own ideas, rather than from a payslip, can be a monumental challenge. The hordes at the gates seem to grow with each new day: More talent with …

How I use a simple ‘night-before’ questions checklist to greatly improve my day (and life) – Red Lemon Club

I know what it’s like to go through the day disorganised, and without knowing what I’m doing. I know how a day can be swallowed whole by the lure of tasty and stimulating distractions. I know the frustration of having a busy day, and working hard, yet feeling like I’m running in one spot not …

Do the right thing consistently, over doing lots of things right – Red Lemon Club

It’s tough when it feels like we’re falling behind. I’ve often wondered why it’s worth it at all — to put in all this time and energy, for few results, and little to no traction. People aren’t interested enough. Everyone else is a million times more talented anyway. The industry seems to be getting more …

All success is overcoming the panic one feels in the face of a challenge – Red Lemon Club

Why can’t this ever get easier? I desperately want to get this piece of writing done. I’m satisfied with the idea, and the way that I will execute it, but still I have a prickling in my stomach. I am nervous. When I think about what has to be done, and that I haven’t done it …

It’s time we figured out our direction in life. Here’s how to make it concrete

I had someone email me recently that their lack of purpose was driving them crazy. They felt lost; trapped. Surely the solution, if you are lost, is to figure out where you want to go. Right? Isn’t it easy? When we’re in a city we don’t know, and we are lost, what do we do? …

What I ask myself when I’ve gone off track with work, to come back twice as strong

I haven’t posted an article in over three weeks. For someone who promised himself an article a day no matter what, that’s pretty crap. I gave myself excuses… “My time has been consumed by other things.” “I went out too much and glugged one too many beers.” “I need to feel great to write a great …

Finding Moments of Deliberateness in an Ever-Connected World

A version of this post first appeared on the Turn Off the Overwhelm blog. We live such busy lives. We run from meeting to meeting, sales call to sales call, school event to school event, all without question. Instead of questioning the validity of these sprints, we simply brush reasons aside, because it’s just what …
