The Brain Hacks Top Founders Use to Get the Job Done

The Brain Hacks Top Founders Use to Get the Job Done | Articles, Interests, and Tips | Scoop.it
Katia Verresen's new client had a big problem: He needed to find 3 to 4 extra hours in his day. This, of course, seemed like an impossible feat for an oversubscribed startup founder, but his ability to fundraise and recruit the best talent depended on it. By the time he met Verresen, executive coach to many such founders, he was drained, pessimistic, dreading every week before it started.
Even though tech culture champions sleeplessness, overtime and burnout, Verresen has seen how this mindset can lead to failure. To turn it around, her first order of business is to collect as much data on her clients as she can and funnel it into a plan with one goal: Maximizing energy. Physical energy, emotional energy, and mental energy. These are the components of successful execution that are too often overlooked.
But the proof is in the pudding. After adopting Verresen's recommendations, her exhausted client said he felt like he had 60% more energy during the day, had a more hopeful outlook, and — by getting more done in the morning — found the four hours he needed in the evening.

Petition to Split California Into Six States Gets Green Light | Articles, Interests, and Tips | Scoop.it
Draper's plan splits California into six new states. (KGO/ABC News) A venture capitalist who feels colossal California is too unwieldy to govern is proposing to split it into six separate states, and Secretary of State Debra Bowen has given him the green light to start collecting petition signatures. Tim Draper filed a ballot initiative in December stating that because of recent social and economic changes California has become “nearly ungovernable.” He proposed dividing California into six states. San Diego and Orange County would make up “South California.” “West California” would include Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, while Bakersfield, Fresno and…
Loretta Witt's insight:

F for Freedom. Always thought California was a more complex state than people have made it out to be. Six states might be a little much, but it's interesting to think of where this could take our beautiful state in the future. ^LW

F for Flexibility. Finding flexibility in a job is amazing. As someone who gets 10 times as much done alone - but is also the exception to the rule in enjoying people, talking, and sharing ideas - is there some kind of middle ground? Food for thought. ^LW
