⏰ 2. The #1 Tool I Use To Track My Time – Toggl

It’s no secret that I love time tracking.

The one question I get asked all the time – what tool should I use to track my time?

You’ve really got three options:

  1. Pen and Paper
  2. Spreadsheet
  3. Use an App

When it comes to time tracking apps, there’s really only one winner in my mind – Toggl.

I’ve been using Toggl EVERY DAY for the last 3 years to track my time.

If you want to get started with Toggl, I recorded a quick video showing you how to get started – You can watch it here.

PS. Toggl is one of sponsors for How To Work Less Cohort 4 (yes, we give out free stuff too!).

When you enroll, you’ll get 3 months of access to Toggl Premiumtotally free.

Just another reason to join us! 😉

💩 3. Lessons Learned From Toxic Business Partnerships – Why 50/50 Partnerships Are Lazy

I recently got a question from a past student who is in a tough situation with his business partner.

The main issue: they have totally different expectations about work.

One wants to work 24/7, while my student wants to run a lifestyle business.

I instantly referred him to this article, written by Cathryn Lavery, founder of BestSelf.

It details the whole story of her messy “business divorce” from her cofounder, and all the lessons she learned along the way.

It also explains things like:

  • How to decide if you need a business partner
  • Qualities you should look for (and what to avoid)
  • How do you split equity
  • The operating agreement (yes, you need one)
  • Business partner checklist

It’s an awesome read. Check it out here.

💰 4. My Current Favorite TV Show – How To Get Rich (Netflix)

I’m a Ramit Sethi fan.

His book I Will Teach You To Be Rich is one of my all-time favorites (if you haven’t read it, do it ASAP).

I also recommended his awesome podcast way back in Work Less Wednesday Issue #7.

And now he’s got a brand new show on Netflix, called How To Get Rich.

Ramit works with people from across the US to live their riches lives.

This means digging into their finances to see what’s really going on behind the scenes.

What makes it so good?

You see real numbersreal emotions, and all pull back the curtain on the irrational thoughts, fears, and feelings people have about money.

It’s an easy binge that will actually improve you life. Check it out.

🔍 5. Cool Tool For Automatically Building SOPs – Scribe

If you’re building systems for your business, you’re probably creating SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures).

Most people do it manually, by just writing down the steps.

A student of mine shared a new tool with me for SOPs: Scribe.

Scribe does it like magic.

Just hit record in Scribe and start your task.

It will record all the steps automatically.

It generates a beautiful step-by-step guide, complete with screenshots and instructions.

I’m experimenting with introducing it into my workflow.

Check it out and let me know what you think!
