I’m not a huge fan of Peter McKinnon and his hyper-polished hipster EDC snowmobile ATV drone renovation videos. But on occasion he strikes a chord. Witness I did this for 30 days and it changed my life, the mother of all clickbaity titles, but with a simple message:
Make a handwritten list of 8 critical things you need to accomplish at the start of every day. Then do them, crossing off as you go.
Not an original idea—indeed John Grimsmo does most of the explaining—but kind of brilliant in its simplicity.
I am on day number one.
So far from the list I’ve taken a bunch of stuff to the thrift shop, scraped some long-standing gunk off the library floor, and taken a bag of cables to the office.
Item four on today’s list: charge my bicycle lights. I figured if I was going to do it, I might as well make it easier for the next time, so I conjured up a system.
