This is why I’m giving it to you for free, for 5 days only, from Tuesday the 12th of June until Saturday the 16th. You can read it from any device!

Have you ever felt that an MBA is becoming a new must-have to be competitive on the job market? Would you like a free MOOC Based MBA?
I had this feeling. So I started researching the options to see which one could be of service for my needs and came up with the following:
As you may already know, exercise has many positive effects on your life: it helps you relief stress, get better sleep, live longer, boosts your metabolism and immune system, etc. All of these benefits help you become more productive, but I want to discuss exercise mainly from the energy point of view: boost your energy with exercise

As the quote suggests, the first time I heard about The Not-to-do List was from Tim Ferriss’ blog.

- The Belief: What we believe is the long-term benefit of acquiring this habit.
- The Reward: The immediate positive feedback we get by the Action/Routine/Behavior, and that serves as short-term motivation.
Ok, having these four elements in mind, let’s go through the seven steps to create habits that last.
