Write each valued principle as an action statement. See that your unifying principles are the highest truths and mutually compatible. Write a paragraph of clarification under […]

CHARLES R. HOBBS…">MY YEARLY AFFAIR WITH CHARLES R. HOBBS

September 20th, 2007

Normally this would wait to appear as a From My Chapbook post, but I’m near the end of the Ten Days of Awe and finishing my annual assement and planning exercise, I thought I’d let everyone have a peak at the book that I annually read cover-to-cover: Time Power by Charles R. Hobbs; the best […]

HOBBS…">CARNEGIE, HILL AND HOBBS

March 8th, 2007

For several months now I’ve been reading Life Hack a couple times a week. I’m a total geek for organizational systems. I’ve re-read the three Grandmasters on the topic — Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill and my personal hero, Charles Hobbs — dozens of times and I constantly make new discoveries when I do. This past […]

WE LABOR IN THE DARK…

September 10th, 2017

I finished Angela Duckworth’s Grit: The Power Of Passion And Perseverance yesterday and for the first time in many years, perhaps decades, I truly came across a new, for me, way to look at planning and goal setting. For most of my life I have relied on the wisdom of Charles Hobbs as recorded in […]

OBSESSION WITH PRODUCTIVITY NOT PRODUCTIVE…

July 19th, 2017

So, over the past three years I’ve been gradually working myself through Oliver Burkeman’s opus: This Column Will Change Your Life—yes, the title is tongue-in-cheek—because, like Burkeman, I have a lifelong obsession with being better. For me, the focus began in high school when I stole the book How To Study Better And Get Higher […]

HAVE YOU SOLD YOUR TRASH ON EBAY…?

March 27th, 2012

In my quest to Get Myself Up From Egypt — four years and running — I’ve toyed with the idea of hitting up people on eBay who, insanely enough, would actually pay money for my accumulated salvage, but never done much more than glance at the site and read Adam Baker’s post on A Minimalist’s […]

GOING OUT FROM EGYPT… NO. 14

May 2nd, 2008

I’m relying so much on the wisdom I’m finding on Leo Babauta’s zenhabits, I decided to buy his ebook: Zen To Done. I started reading it this afternoon. One of the organization elements that Babauta writes about is routine. A morning routine (for example) could include looking at your calendar, going over your context lists, […]

THIS WRITER’S DAY…

April 9th, 2007

A little more than a month ago I wrote about how I had begun to print out my daily action list on 3×5-inch index cards using my HP IIIP laser printer. This afternoon, as I move into a new phase in my organizational structure, I thought some readers might be interested in seeing what each […]

A STRATEGY FOR DAILY LIVING…

February 10th, 2007

A Strategy For Daily Living by Ari Kiev Kiev derived his eight principles from a genesis request: I want some kind of daily checklist to help keep me on track during times of doubt and indecision. I know I must solve my own problems, but if I had some general rules to follow it would […]

NINETEEN BOOKS THAT HAVE SHAPED MY WORLD…

September 24th, 2006

I first compiled this list in 1997 when a friend asked me for a list of the 10 books that most shaped my life. Of course, I couldn’t restrict the list to just 10. I think in the original I kept it to a dozen or so. In the eighteen years since the list has […]
