Tools

Techniques

  • Before you leave for a trip, transfer stuff to cloud storage and get rid of a lot of your crap
  • Travel light. Literally, and spiritually.
  • Don’t mind the clunky video edits
  • Go to lots of events, especially in a new city

Habits

  • Wake up early, before the world is up
  • Celebrate what you got done by mid-day
  • Eat right and exercise, even from the road
  • Build a workflow you can torture-test. Print receipts, save a PDF, keep backups. Save multiple copies and don’t rely on a single point of failure.
