Short on Time? 6 Ways to Improve Your Side Hustle Energy

Time is our most valuable commodity, and it’s uniquely egalitarian; we’re all dealt the same 24-hours each day.

But it’s also a non-renewable resource — once it’s used up it’s used up.

Bryn and my friends think I’m crazy. They’re probably right.

But call it a coincidence — things have been going pretty well since I turned on that cold water!

The I Done This and Daily Gratitude Challenge

What work did you do yesterday? The day before?

Up until a month ago, I wouldn’t have had a good answer for you.

He recommended an automated service called I Done This.
