3 Topics I’m Exploring Right Now

3 topics have been attracting my curiosity recently:

Topic #1: Tasks by Cognitive Effort

I’m interested in focus and being intentional with my time. So much so that I created a framework called Focus Drivers, which allows you to categorise tasks by cognitive efforts.

And I hope that over the next few months, as I continue to learn more and more, I’ll be able to turn Focus Drivers framework into a book, course or both.

Topic #2: Personal Knowledge Management (PKM)

Tiago Forte introduced me to PKM with the Building a Second Brain cohort-based course. 

⚡️Lightning bolt moment ⚡️

PKM opened my eyes to the benefits of a connected system for capturing content and distilling my expressions.

It transformed my note-taking into note-making. No more forgotten Kindle highlights, newsletter subscriptions or article bookmarks!!! They’re actually useful now.

Topic #3: Compounding Motivation

I’ve been looking at how unrelated achievements can impact motivation. 

Making your bed, hitting the gym, getting outside early, or an hour of morning writing — can create small wins. 

Small wins can prime for bigger lifts and influence a positive mindset.

It would be great to connect with other people interested in these same topics — so if any of the above resonates, feel free to reach out!
