2020 Focus Course Digital Planner

I am a big fan of what Shawn Blanc does with The Sweet Setup and his personal blog. I’ve been looking for a way to bring my planning to my iPad. I have traditionally found it cumbersome, even with great apps like Goodnotes. This PDF planner looks like it will give some structure to an […]

Learn about Stoicism.

Ryan Holiday writes excellent books. Ego is the Enemy and The Obstacle Is the Way are my two favorite.
