With my hands, with my laptop; I can impact change and move the world!

Laptops are under-rated, smartphones are over-rated.

My realization:

If you truly desire to create MASSIVE VALUE; the goal is focusing on working on your laptop, NOT your phone!

And this is where everyone is kind of getting suckered:

We think we can become more productive by getting better phones.

But the reality–

If you desire to maximize your impact in the world, focus on creating value and making great things via your laptop!

Practical ideas

  1. Buy a good laptop; the best entrepreneurial investment you can make for yourself. I recommend buying a maxed-out refurbished Mac. For example, I bought a 13” MacBook Pro Touch Bar (maxed out, refurbished) for a model which was 1-2 years old. I paid around $2,000 instead of the original $3,200 cost.
  2. A phone is truly the least important “productivity tool” in your arsenal. I’m starting to realize more and more– the phone is only really useful for texting, making phone calls, Google Maps, and Uber. Buying a smartphone for the camera doesn’t seem to make sense to me; even using my RICOH GR III has at least 10x better image quality and performance than the new iPhone Pro.
  3. Make your own website/blog: 1and1.com or bluehost.com for your host, and install wordpress.org. One of the best ways you can change the world is to philosophize, blog, share your photos, and share your thoughts.

Why laptop?

  1. Laptop to build your own website. To manage your own FTP server.
  2. To quickly edit, organize, export, and work on your photos, videos, or text-based things.
  3. I can type 10x faster on my laptop than even the best phone. Thus if I desire to maximize my production of ideas and text, the laptop reigns supreme.

Long story short:

Use your phone less, use your laptop more!
