Tip of the Week:  How to Triple Your Productivity

The trick is pretty simple: use three times as many monitors.

  1. I can keep a resource open on one monitor (research, notes, etc.)
  2. My working document on the center monitor.
  3. I can keep communication or utilities open on the third monitor.

You can do this rather on the cheap (as I currently am). I use these three: my Macbook Pro 15″ Retina, and two run-of-the-mill 21″ LCD monitors.

And once you decide this really works for you, you can upgrade with a specialized dock (which is what I'm doing next). I recommend you look at the Henge Dock.

Why Henge Dock?2016-06-30_10-18-06

Intelligent. Automated docking and full integration with Mac OS X together make the world’s most intelligent docking station.

Powerful. Support for up to three external displays and 13 expansion ports, including Thunderbolt 2 – your Macbook has never been more powerful.

Elegant. Metal architecture and an elegant design create a natural extension of your MacBook.

Secure. Safeguard your MacBook automatically with password protected dock locking.

Henge Dock for Macbook Pro is $ 449 USD

3 Converging Forces That Make This Possible

  1. Global Networks
  2. Instant Commerce Systems
  3. Digital Distribution

These 3 converging forces make it possible to take your life's passion – the thing that lights you up inside, that brings you joy, that makes you come alive – and turn that passion into a book, a product or a business?

What could you possibly package? What if you “don't have a passion”?

Discover your passion with an “I Exam”:

1. Things you love to do.
2. Things you're good at (other people say so).
3. Things other people pay for that are on lists (1) and (2)

A convergence here gives you a place to start.

The “how” to make the product is NOT THE MAIN ISSUE. It's a detail.

Park the thoughts of tech, and next week, we will explore how to “promote your products.”

This is hilarious (coaches, please have a thick skin… have a laugh!)

    Hi. I’m new to your site and don’t understand something.
    There’s a lovely graphic with the words “how to turn ideas and experience into income”. Nice, but the audio link below is”grow your business with LinkedIn”. Why doesn’t the audio match the graphic or have I missed something?
