I don't expect to be posting very much here for the forseeable future, maybe once or twice a month. Most new and exciting things that I'm up to are related to Life Nomadic, so make sure you check for my posts (and subscribe to the RSS) there.
The good news is that I will be posting at least twice a week there, Todd is posting as well, and I upload photos and write quick updates every day. Posts that I make to BTYB will be more "personal development" related, as well as projects I'm working on (like conversion doubler).
I also check the forums every day.
Anyway, this is just a reminder for anyone who is checking this site wondering why updates are a bit slow.
In other news, Life Nomadic is taking off. I believe that it will be a hugely successful site within a few months. In our first week we've already hit StumbleUpon (thanks to Alex Shalman, who is always very generously looking for ways to help me out), and Tim Ferriss linked to us because Donovan from Seduction Chronicles let him know about us.
Thanks for the help and thanks a lot for reading!
Here's what's going on with Life Nomadic. The site still isn't ready, but it's getting close. I also said that it was close a month ago, so take that with a grain of salt.
The primary delay is that the site is being coded by hand from scratch. It's not built on wordpress, drupal, or anything else like that. Todd is custom coding it from the ground up. This means that it takes a lot longer to get ready, but will also be way more advanced than any other site like it.
The second delay is that we basically did zero work for two weeks while we went everywhere in Panama. Can't say I regret that at all.

There is so much power in this quote. If you've never tracked yourself, you don't even know how much power there is in tracking. I couldn't even explain it adequately. You wouldn't believe me. You'd think I was exaggerating. The simple act of paying attention to something will cause you to make connections you never did before, and you'll improve the those areas - almost without any extra effort.
I'm not a believer in "free lunch" and I don't think the universe vibrates things to you just by thinking about them. But the closest thing to a free lunch getting vibrated to you by the universe is writing things down as they happen.
Before I go any further, I need to give you one piece of advice - start small and build up, so you don't overwhelm yourself. This is just being pragmatic. You want to scale up gradually, as I wrote up in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking." You want to build small wins, lock them so they become automatic, and then expand.
I'd have a hard time convincing you of the power of tracking, so I'll just show you. I fill this out every single day.
