Hello, I am Maxim Dsouza.
Who I am and how I think
I am a self-improvement, productivity, and time management enthusiast. I spend every day of my life trying to find better ways to do things.
Many of my experiments fail and some of them succeed. I’m obsessed with making the best of my time. I have tried to optimize the time I take to brush my teeth. When I attempted multitasking while cooking, the dish turned charcoal black. So we ordered food that night. I am not proud of my approach, but I look for optimization opportunities that people consider shocking. My approach is to never run a sprint but take small baby steps like a marathon while enjoying the journey.
On this blog, I share my experience about what works and what doesn’t. I won’t suggest any tips to brush faster, pinky promise.
Also, I strive to make better decisions by understanding the different aspects of psychology and human behavior. If you’re keen on achieving your goals, you must develop a sound awareness about how your brain operates and thinks. I have done extensive research on cognitive biases and psychology on my own.
On this blog, I write real life and actionable advice on:
- Goal Clarity
- Time Management
- Decision Making
My adventure with entrepreneurship
Through my career, I have developed a special love for building businesses. Along this journey, I have been a part of and contributed extensively to multiple failed startups. I have run a web development agency, a practice management application for doctors, and a listing website for brands. My ideas have fallen flat on their face many times.
I am yet to find what works, but my experience has taught me what doesn’t. So when I write about entrepreneurship, I write what not to do instead of a blueprint for success.
My journey being a writer
What started as a blog turned into a thirst for writing better.
I have written a book called ‘The Magic of 2 Seconds.‘ It teaches you how to make better decisions and avoid silly mistakes in 2 seconds. Your mind can do amazing things in 2 seconds. Your thoughts are lightning quick, no matter what your IQ.
Practicing the 2 second principle is the secret recipe for developing the self awareness skills of a zen monk. Your brain is capable of a lot more than you think. Read this book to tap into the magic of your mind using just 2 seconds.
