Life Tools

Here are some things that I use that help me get by in life.

Gold Tier

Items in this tier wowed me.

  • Evernote – In case you haven’t noticed, I think better by putting things in categories and boxes.  Evernote helps me to organize all my thoughts and keep them for reference.  I use this in my business, but also my life.

Purple Tier

Items in this tier provided me supreme value for the cost and time invested

  • Trident Tropical Twist Gum – In Ranger School, gum helped me to stay awake, and gave me something to do when exhausted.  We had a chance to buy more gum after the hardest part, and this is what I bought.  So this particular gum reminds me of the relief I got when I was going through one of the most challenging parts of my life.
  • Kitchen Timers – I find having a small deadline helps me to focus.  Using a kitchen timer makes it super easy for me to accomplish that.

Blue Tier

Items in this tier provided me a good amount of value for the cost and time invested

  • Logos Bible Software – I purchased this when first starting out in my business because I thought I’d make more Christian oriented games, but have moved away from that.  Now I use it for my bible study in the morning
  • Calendar White Boards – Mini-habits (1, 2) is a great way to build habits that are productive for you.  I find tracking my habits visually and digitally helps.  This is what I use to track whatever mini-habits I may be working on at any given time.

Green Tier

Items in this tier provided me some value for the cost and time invested

  • Water Jugs – I listened to a good podcast about the importance of having clean water.  My wife and I found a natural spring near us, so this is what we use to store out water.

White Tier (None So Far)

Items in this tier provided me little to no value for the cost and time invested

Grey Tier (None So Far)

Items in this tier felt like value was taken away from me for the cost and time invested

Continuing Tool Finding

Growing a company takes a lot of work, and tools that make life easier helps a lot.  I plan on trying new ones and seeing which ones help me succeed.  I’ll keep them updated.
