New Feature: Contact Fields

Simplero now lets you add custom fields to your contacts. It used to be that we actually only collected name and email for your contacts. Now you can collect any type of information. including complex ones like addresses and phone numbers.

We've added a bunch of built-in field types, like Twitter handle, age, birthday, addresses, phone numbers, and so on. And you can add your own fields. As many as you'd like.

You can add them to forms, and you can add additional ones to products, that are...

Be Where You Are

As entrepreneurs, it's easy to want to be further along than we are. To want to be more successful, have more clients, make more money. And that desire is great. But it's really really important that we enjoy and appreciate where we are. In fact, that we want to be where we are, right now.

Because this is the only now that exists. And if today you want to be 3 steps ahead of where you are, guess where you'll want to be when you're 3 steps further than today? That's right, you'll want to...

When you let go of the "should", the "want to" may arise

I wrote about Getting Things Done last week. Since then, I've had a related experience - twice - that I need to share with you.

I've been having a side project to create an iOS app for calculating numerology with my friend and numerologist, Allberte. It started with my online numerology calculator, and it grew into talks about an app, and immediately my mind started thinking about what an app might do, and how to do it, and so on.

Yet, as the weeks went on and I did nothing about it, it was...

Learning to live in a finite world

There's a part of me that longs for the day that I never have to worry about how much or what I eat, or how much and what type of exercise I do.

It's the same part of me that doesn't want to worry about money and what I spend them on and whether there's going to be enough. 

It's also the same part that doesn't want to have to worry about what I spend my time on.

Or what I choose to put in the limited space I have in my Manhattan apartment.

In short, there's a part of me that really...

Goodbye Office

For most of my life, I've been self-employed, and working from home. Even during the short periods when I've been employed by an outside company, I've rarely gone to an office.

But that doesn't stop me from trying. Many times, I've been sucked in by the lure of having a separate space for work and for non-work, of going to a place with other people. But each and every time, I end up concluding it's not for me.

Recently I read this post by my friend Lauren Fritsch, and it just hit it home for...

Getting Things Done, in Two Variants

Getting things done is important. We work on the energy, we blechschmidt, we visualize, we do all of those things. But at the end of the day, we still need to get stuff done.

Here are two of my favorite hacks for getting the most important things done reliably and consistently.

The Spread-Out Variant

My life takes different forms at different times. A few months back, I had many projects going all at once. I was applying for my visa, I was overseeing different development projects, I was...

Life hacking experiments: Fasting

I like to experiment with different "life hacks". From changing my name based in numerology, to spending a year in India practicing yoga daily at 4am, to going vegetarian for 5 months, to going without alcohol for 5 months, to blood tests, DNA tests, supplements, detoxing, energy healing, and much much more.

These days, I'm trying out something new: Fasting. I've done two days of fasting before, at the tail end of a 3-week detox cleanse. It was interesting to do the two days, but I haven't...

Living out your dreams

It was about 11 years ago when I started watching The Daily Show. I'd lived in New York for a couple of years prior to that where I wasn't aware of it, and by this time I was back in Denmark, and I'd hired a US citizen as one of my employees, and he was the one who turned me on to it. I've probably watched pretty much every single episode since then.

For years it was a way for me to stay connected with a country I loved and wanted to live in, despite "temporarily" living overseas. It was a...

The Universe Is Just Trying to Do Its Job

I'm at Copenhagen Airport, waiting to board our plane back to New York. By the time we land it'll be 3.30am Copenhagen time, and we'll have to go through immigration. I dread the long lines already, but thankfully we now have a freshly minted visa in our passports. It feels great.

We had a little bit of a scare when we got to the airport and tried to check in with our dog. We did have a reservation, so that wasn't the problem. The problem was that the lady at the counter said we had to have a...
