Best Articles

On August 7, 2015, I published my first article on The last time I checked (May 2018), I published 212 articles on this blog—and it feels like I’m only getting started.

During that time, I’ve covered many different topics. But I’ve always written about things that are relevant to me and you, the reader. We face the same challenges. I only document how I deal with them here.

No matter what I do, I have one central question that drives my work: How can we live a useful life that matters?

I believe that a productive life equals a happy and fulfilling life. On this page, you can find my most read articles on life, productivity, habits, decision making, personal finance entrepreneurship, and more.

I hope they will help you to live a productive life. Enjoy! And feel free to join the journey.
