These are 5 tools my multi-millionaire CEO uses to stay productive. But....

My CEO works non stop, from 7am to 10pm, he’s extreme. His only priorities in life are work and family, and he’s told me he sometimes regrets that he lost touch with a few of his good friends.

My point here is:

one, this lifestyle is not for everybody. And

two, you won’t become a successful CEO just because you start using those tools.

This is inspirational advice only; remember to adapt this type of content to your own reality.

“I’m 40 but my Garmin Watch (and my doctor) tells me my body has the condition of a 25-year old.”

  • When my CEO gets a bit of free time, he likes to run. He also likes to remind us how important it is to exercise, and that his doctor told him his heart is doing amazing.
  • He uses his Garmin Watch to track all his physical activity.
  • His number of steps was off the charts. The daily recommended average is 8K to 10K. He’s on the phone 80% of the time, and he uses that time to walk around the building (or his house since the pandemic) instead of sitting at his desk.

“I don’t like taking notes on my phone, it’s too small and impractical. I write everything in my notepad and filter out important stuff in my digital notes later.”

  • I also use a notepad all the time, and it was one of the most popular answers when I asked 50+ productivity experts about their favourite tools.
  • My CEO uses his journal like a lot of productive people do: not only for meetings and notes throughout the day, but also for personal journaling.
  • He also practices gratefulness on a dedicated page (write down 3 things you’re grateful for everyday).

“I would say my sneakers are a productivity tool, because I used to wear pointy dress shoes all the time, and the day I switched to sneakers, it just made my life so much more efficient. No more feet pain, shoe cleaning, or buying new shoes every few months.”

  • If you’re trying to make your life more efficient, your feet might be an unexpected area to investigate.
  • Sometimes we overlook parts of our productivity that are easy to fix & have a huge return on investment.
  • I buy a new pair of my favourite sneakers every 6 months, I don't spend time deciding what to wear & my feet are happy.

Google Suite is used company-wide at my work, so everyone has access to everyone’s calendar. My CEO is super transparent with his use of time.

  • My CEO’s week is organised in blocks of 15 minutes to a few hours.
  • This is known as the time-blockingapproach, and it can be really efficient if you stick to the allocated time slots.
  • This technique also tends to naturally eliminate distractions and unproductive multitasking.
  • Assigning colours to event types helps too. Here are the colours my CEO uses:
  • Green → Work
  • Blue → Family
  • Orange → Exercise
  • Gray → Specific tags and categories (work-related)

Wake-up light

Wake-up light

“I could never get out of bed as early as I do, especially in the winter, without this thing. I’ve had it for years and it’s been a game changer for my morning efficiency.”

  • I’ve my own wake-up light for years. It gradually increases from 0 to full brightness over 30 minutes & then the alarm goes off.
  • The light acts as an artificial sunrise & I wake up a few minutes before my alarm goes off.
  • Not only does this light help you wake up more naturally, it also helps feeling less groggy in the morning.
  • With this light, your eyes are already accustomed to the ambiant brightness when you wake up.

My CEO never did it to become rich. He did it because entrepreneurship is embedded in his personality, and he always wanted to create his own thing.

He understood that this drive had to be fuelled by constant motivation, productivity, and a ruthless desire to improve himself. Hopefully you enjoy a hell of a ride too.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
