My Biggest Two Productivity Gains from 2016

Boom! It's 2017. Oh my goodness, 2016 was the best year of my life by far. Knock on wood, everything is working. It's working marvelously, even.

One of my very few regrets is that I'm doing less ad hoc writing. I published 52 essays at The Strategic Review in 2016, the first half of which got edited into the book Progression; the second half will be in the upcoming Machina (rough guess on ETA: February).

TSR roughly doubled in size, all through word of mouth. (Thank you.) But I didn't blog as much as I used to, and I used to have a lot of fun doing this.

I've also learned a lot about making things happen in the last year, that I think might be useful to you. I'm going to be blogging a little more in 2017.

So without further ado, here's two things that have been huge for me.

Why The New Kindle is a Must-Have for Travelers

On Tynan

There are three items I own which I'll always upgrade when a significant upgrade exists: my computer, my camera, and my Kindle. Yesterday I got my new Kindle, the fourth generation one that was just released. Before I talk about this specific Kindle, I want to address some general points about the Kindle.


Some people balk at the $189 price tag of the newest 3G Kindle (which is the only one to buy, by the way). It's expensive, but only if you consider it a drop in replacement for books. I consider it $200 to ensure that I read at least 10X more than I used to.
