Trio #40 Connecting the Dots

3 curated ideas for Consistent Productivity based on a common theme

Everyday, we will bring to you a related set of 3 actionable tips, ideas & advice (mostly from Twitter)! These are meant to expand your thinking, knowledge & empower you to be the best version of yourself. The links (people, tools & processes) are also meant to add value :)

We hope you enjoyed this eye +mind candy. Share it with your friends and family if you find it valuable. Perhaps they will too!?

Cheers and see you :)
