Welcome to the 365 to Vision ‘Lifestyle’ Blog
Welcome to the 365 to Vision blog, which I refer to as a “lifestyle” blog.
This is not a personal author blog, which typically becomes a platform for authors to rant and exploit only their interests. I don’t own a personal-named site – I just can’t get myself to do it because of my attitude about ego-driven websites. Not that there’s anything wrong with it – it’s actually super smart marketing. I’m just not on board with it (yet).
And it’s far from a business blog, which typically highlights the solutions to a searcher’s problems and places the products/services as that solution.
Nope – this is a lifestyle blog that puts the 365 to Vision way of living in the forefront, a lifestyle that’s also promoted in the latest 365 to Vision books. I will focus on what I love best – writing, productivity hacks, and content marketing.
When used as an adjective, Merriam-Webster defines lifestyle as “associated with, reflecting, or promoting an enhanced or more desirable lifestyle.”
And that’s what this blog will do – promote a more enhanced and desirable lifestyle by guiding you on a journey of endless productivity hacks.
The content will expose ways to hack life in every way possible to achieve more quality work in less time. The results of developing a disciplined focus on productivity include less stress and more time to screw around in life and do what truly makes you happy.
The hacks involve everything from blocking time and prioritizing daily lists of items to becoming super focused by hacking your environment to enforcing downtime weekly to reset your mindset and body for stronger productivity.
I’ll also discuss many of the latest biohacking methods. This area is still confusing to many, so it demands a quick definition. Dave Asprey, founder and CEO of Bulletproof, defines biohacking as “the process of using science, biology, and self-experimentation to take control of and upgrade your body, mind, and life.”
Intermittent fasting is a biohack. Using a standing desk to increase energy and better posture is a biohack. Using non-LED lights in the office helps reserve energy, and is another biohack.
You get the idea, right? It’s not that confusing. I tell people biohacking simply means changing things in your environment and lifestyle to promote super wellness (and in my case, that means super productivity).
I would not be where I am today if I didn’t discover biohacking. I became obsessed with the biohacking lifestyle in late 2015. I attribute that lifestyle as the ultimate prompt to finally launch my own business and spend more time doing what I love, such as writing, riding motorcycles, and wandering around endlessly in the countryside.
Some of my favorite biohacks are:
- Standing work desk (I don’t own an office chair)
- Grounding mats for in-office “earthing” while working (reconnects you to the earth; reduces inflammation)
- Multiple supplements daily, such as turmeric, GABA, Theacrine, Huperzine, and about 40 others (I’m sure these will pop up sporadically in blogs)
- Bulletproof coffee (butter and C8 MCT oil blended in coffee supercharges like no others, and keeps the brain sharp all day)
- Zero caffeine after 2 p.m.
- Ending every shower ice-cold
- Circadian Optics light therapy light in the morning (mimics sun to awake us)
There are many others, and all help with sharper focus and more energy, which results in stronger productivity and wiser use of time.
I’m sure the above biohacks and others will be exposed throughout these blogs.
A productive lifestyle also demands “sharpening the saw” daily to learn and keep the mind sharp continuously. As a writer, my natural go-to for education is reading. I try to read six books per month. Sometimes I go well over, other times well under. The amount is futile as long as I’m learning something new every day. Others rely on podcasts, video content, or seminars.
Throughout this blog, I’ll provide reviews or insights from what I’m reading, highlighting the truly remarkable portions.
I’ll also provide interviews with some well-known productivity and writing masters and have some guest contributors who genuinely care about living a 365 to Vision lifestyle.
Some blogs will be 2,500 words if those many words are needed, and others 500. Once a point is made, it’s time to move on. Clutter-free writing is vital here.
The 365 to Vision lifestyle focuses on productivity and optimizing time. The results are increased happiness and positivity because you’ll regain much time and a clearer mind to truly enjoy life, whether that means screwing around on a motorcycle race track at 180 mph, having more sex, or taking the dog for a walk.
We all have 1440 minutes in the day. Take back whatever one you possibly can and screw around in life the way you want. No excuses. No BS.
