Supplement Update

In an attempt to get the correct ratio of vitamins and minerals, I have been mixing my own supplement packs for some time now. Tonight, I mixed my last batch. Am I ceasing my supplementation? No.

The good people of Vitamins on Demand have agreed to provide me the precise mix of supplements I have been taking in individual daily packs for basically the same price as I was paying for the supplements alone.

What will I do with my extra 15-25 minutes per week? 

The possibilities are endless.

Stay well engineered,

External Brain, Part 1

Sure, I have been using Evernote for some time to keep all of my new notes in the cloud, but what about all those binders full of notes from High School and College? They are certainly of no use unless I am in my basement. Plus, the few times I have wanted to have some of them at work I had to put off what I was doing, remember to dig up my notes and bring them to work the following day. Definitely not efficient use of my time.

This past weekend, I took the opportunity to scan three office boxes worth of notes prior to shredding and recycling them. This is just another step toward what Ari Meisel calls your "external brain". You can read about it in his book Less Doing, More Living.

Stay well engineered,

First Post

I never thought I would start a blog. What would I write about? Who would want to read it? Why would I want to have one in the first place?

Well, some of my coworkers have begun to notice my weight loss and it was not long before people were asking me about the "butter in the coffee" thing. When a random guy at Barnes and Noble asked me why I was picking up Timothy Ferriss' The 4-Hour Workweek, my interest in Biohacking and parallel avenues of Less Doing and Minimalism clearly needed more of an explanation than I was willing to go into.

It was at that point that I decided that it would be faster to hand them a business card with a link to my blog where they can see what I do, and get links to where I have learned to do it.
Not sure if I love the logo, but the I think the title is good to go. What are your thoughts?
