  • Rant: Goodie Bags

    This is a short rant post but bear with me. We develop custom mobile apps, and one of the main apps we’re running is SeriousMD, which handles medical records and overall practice management for doctors. As we’re always looking to improve our service, we, the founders, would regularly meet with doctors to see how we can further improve the app.

  • I Think You Are Doing Too Much

    I Think You Are Doing Too Much By Dennis Seymour · November 13, 2017 It’s been the most challenging 2 years of my life. I was juggling a lot of things together. I thought it would be a breeze. I guess not. Frustrated with my lack of progress, I decided to take a step back and actually “look” at what I’m doing.

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 30

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 30 By Dennis Seymour · April 30, 2017 It’s finally here. The last day! Did I wake up? I really learned a lot about myself the past 30 days. This challenge has been exhausting, especially since my daughter couldn’t sleep early even with adjustments. The wife tried her best to keep distractions to a minimal and hit the scheduled time but she’s very pregna ...

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 29 By Dennis Seymour · April 29, 2017 It’s almost the last day of the challenge and I’d like to finish strong. It’s been just as I expected when I first started this challenge. This month was going to be grueling with all the events, holidays and travel needed. It tested my will and how I learned a lot on how I can manage my motivation and energy throughout the day.

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 28 By Dennis Seymour · April 28, 2017 It’s almost done! Day 28! I have to finish strong even with these stupid holidays and events. This month has been crazy and it’s a crazy time to deal with a challenge that demands consistency. Today, I plan to go back to 3 major accomplishments per day workflow to get back ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 27

    Tired from a long trip (Over 8 hours) – Check Today is a holiday because of that ASEAN thingy – Check Too tired to move and slept at 11pm (No planning for the next day) – Check Those 3 alone spell disaster for somebody that’s going to wake up early. LOL. Thankfully, my body has gotten used to it and sleeping at 11 works already.

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 25 By Dennis Seymour · April 25, 2017 After a busy day of almost 20k steps, up and down hospitals, strategizing where to go and who I need to be talking to, I was drained. The lesson: pace yourself. With entrepreneurship, it’s ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 23

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 23 By Dennis Seymour · April 23, 2017 Woke up around 4am but I continued to sleep. Why? I told myself that I needed this weekend to recharge before the busy week ahead. I’m expecting it to be the most tiring week of my life, embarking to a new place, new dialect and new culture to try and “sell” our services to more possible users. It’s also ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 22

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 22 By Dennis Seymour · April 22, 2017 Yesterday was the 4th straight highly productive day and I got to bed around 1am because of a last meeting. I think it took a toll on my body. I wasn’t able to wake up early at all. I woke up from time to time throughout the night but I guess deep sleep hit me after 3am and not even the alarms could wake me up or my ...

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 21 By Dennis Seymour · April 21, 2017 My stubborn ass just wouldn’t give up. I slept at 2am this time trying to grind what I could before today’s big tasks and before I have my trip on Monday next week for a conference. I made i ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 20

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 20 By Dennis Seymour · April 20, 2017 I had a very productive day yesterday. Hit around 18 Pomodoros out the park. So, the dumbass that I am, decided to give it one more try. Just like yesterday, I failed miserably. I slept around 1am as I grinded out as much as I could since I was on a role. I felt like it was the right thing ...

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 19 By Dennis Seymour · April 19, 2017 Ok…yesterday was awesome. I got to 18 Pomodoros and finished some really tedious tasks. So, I tried to push it. I tried this last time and failed but I decided to try again and push myself to my limits and see what ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 18

    So, the alarm didn’t go off. I have to figure out why iOS does this sometimes. I think it locks itself when it’s low power mode. So I woke up around 4:48 with no alarm. After I unlocked it, it started to ring properly. WTF iOS. Yesterday was tiring mentally and physically. I had to churn out at least 11 Pomodoros in the morning alone as I needed to rush and travel to a meet ...

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 17 By Dennis Seymour · April 17, 2017 17 days in and a week of “holidays” is now done. Nothing is more unproductive than holidays because it messes with your routine. I had a hard time waking up in the morning as I had to convince myself to get back to work. Even with all the things I’ve laid out the night before, the holiday feeling is really hard to fight off.

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 16

    It’s past the halfway mark now. They say it takes over 21 days to acquire a new habit, so I guess I’m almost there. Progress update: Scheduling is a must even if you wake up early, you won’t get much done if you don’t prioritize Review before going to sleep as it helps your mind get started once that alarm rings, well, unless you’re a freak and you don’t even use alarms ...

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 14 By Dennis Seymour · April 14, 2017 As I expected, combining a birthday and a holiday was gonna be unproductive. Good thing I woke up early yesterday to finish what I aimed for. For days like that, you’ll be pulled away from what you’re doing and if you have kids, you’ll feel guilty as well. You better ...

  • #Earlyfor30 – Day 13

    #Earlyfor30 – Day 13 By Dennis Seymour · April 13, 2017 Finally, a day where I could have enough time to get to a deep work state. Finished Pomodoro 8 before 3pm. I finished my work time around 630 to travel to another meeting. Though distractions kept happening on the other half of the day, at least for the initial half, I was able to grind out and accomplish things.
