Time is not fungible. Imagine you take a 1-inch slice from the middle of a bridge. You don’t just lose an inch – you also lose a bridge. It doesn’t matter how long something takes. What matters is how taking that time effects everything else.
You can scrub your teeth with a toothbrush. You can scrub a toilet with a toothbrush. But would you use the same brush? Of course not. So why use your smartphone for every little thing it can do?

Don't end up in "creative debt" When you don't make space for creative thinking, you end up paying for it later. If time is money, then being excessively busy is like running a balance on a credit card. You pay interest in the form of lost creativity.
Happiness hack: Work for no one. Work with no one. Employ no one. Have creative control, eliminate workplace drama, & make decisions faster.
The Heart to Start is $1.99 on Apple Books! Currently the #3 bestseller in its category. Can we make it #1 today?
Good morning Twitter. What a day yesterday was! #136 best-seller on Amazon #1 SMB & Entrepreneurship #3 iBooks, Health, Mind, & Body #2 Barnes & Noble, Self Help & Relationships More than 1,700 copies sold this week! I greatly appreciate iBooks purchases 🙏 Only $1.99!

840 Kindle sales so far today!

Okay, Amazon's ranking system is definitely stuck. 738 books sold today, still stuck at a #934 ranking. Should be about #150. Not good timing! Hope it updates soon.
RT @pavsaund: I recommend this book! I wrote a small review/summary here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2224310974#comment_180443541 https://twitter.com/kadavy/status/1270811564136976384
If you'd like to help me make a run for the WSJ list, please buy The Heart to Start on Apple Books. It's $1.99! Practically free. Word on the street is you need 500 sales in a non-Amazon platform to qualify. Currently ranked next to @Gladwell @jimkwik & @msrachelhollis.
Gonna try not to read too much into these sales numbers...

Tallied up sales so far over in an /r/selfpublish post: Broke the 1,000 mark! (Today's Amazon sales now up to 582, so add on about 60) (Non-Amazon outlets are all sloooow to report, so add on I-don't-know-hundred) WSJ list minimum is 3,000, or so I hear.
Truly bizarre that The Heart to Start's ranking is still stuck at #934 overall. Have sold 547 Kindle copies today. According to @DaveChesson's calculator, should be ranked around #200. Thought rankings updated hourly, but hasn't changed for at least 4 hours. Always learning!
Well, hit that 500 mark before noon! Rankings still frozen everywhere – Amazon, Apple, B&N, Kobo, etc. So strange.
When our true self doesn’t get a chance to follow its desires – when it doesn’t get the creative exercise necessary to arm it with a vocabulary in which to express itself – it acts out in strange ways.
@tferriss You say you miss crispy things while keto. Don’t forget chicharrónes, Colombian style! 🇨🇴 -Baking soda on pork belly pieces for 1 hour -Pan on stove until fat melts -Fry the shit out of them in their own fat Super crispy, super delicious, #ketoaf.

Not even 10am, and now 300 sales. That's 100 books in half an hour. This sales velocity is incredible. Look at the sales so far today, compared to working my ass off and spending a shitload on ads the past few days. Sales rank still stuck at #934. That will change big, soon.
Wow, more than 200 sales, and it's 9:30am. Five minutes ago, I had 194. Now, 219. Breathtaking. Damn, @BookBub is powerful.

The Heart to Start, did, in fact, make it to #1 in Entrepreneurship by the end of the day. Actually, I'm surprised! Thanks to everyone who bought and shared with their followers! Trust me: Tomorrow will be even more exciting. https://twitter.com/kadavy/status/1270349856389939200
So close to breaking the #1,000 barrier overall. Searching for a meaning for why my stomach is tied in knots... Hope I don't create any bad blood... I'm running lean from the start... This thing is going from zero to one...
RT @matiasbaldanza: This thread is gold. Now, go write a lot of books, fail fast and learn!!! (10 failures teach more than 1 success, IMO)
Inching the way up to #2 in Entrepreneurship. @simonsinek is officially eating my dust. Though a 25¢ book? That's hard to compete with! Aggressive price point. Hoping tomorrow is a miracle morning.

Clear writing is not effective writing. Clear writing uses the exact right words. Effective writing actually gets read. To make your writing clear, remove words. To make your writing effective, add words back in.
By the way, The Heart to Start is also $1.99 today on Apple Books (though I guess most people still call it “iBooks”) Currently #47 in Self-Development!
Creativity doesn’t come on command. Don’t count on having the right idea at the right time. ABC A - Always B - Be C - Capturing In a notebook, on your phone, on greasy napkins. Good ideas, bad ideas, half-baked ideas. However necessary, ABC: Always Be Capturing your ideas.
Woke up to The Heart to Start #1 in Startups...yet #3 in Entrepreneurship. Can it get to #1 today? (It’s on sale for $1.99)
24. It’s easy to have a bestseller. Because your book can be in 10 categories, if you make some sales, your book has a good chance of ranking #1 in one of the less-competitive categories you choose. The trad. world will tell you it's not a "real" bestseller. They're wrong. END
You could use your smartphone as an alarm clock. You also could use your toothbrush to scrub a toilet. Doesn‘t mean either is a good idea. What a device CAN do isn’t as important to designing your behavior as actively deciding what a device WON’T do. De-vice your devices.
