Are you a productive person? No, not really... Well, Me Too. But somehow I manage to get some things done. Outside looking in you’d think I’m a very organized, meaningful, and productive person. Well, I am, and I’m not.
K-O-D-O-N-I-N-J-A, this doesn’t make any sense. Well yes, it does. Let me know if this resonates with you. I procrastinate a lot. But somehow I manage to get a lot of work packed in when I do manage to get things done. I get distracted fairly easily, and when I get distracted I'm gone down that rabbit hole for hours to days.
But when I do manage to get things done, it's like I made up for all the time wasted. CRAZY... I know. And despite this, I live a fairly meaningful life even though every day I feel like I've gotten nothing done. This past two weeks I’ve spit out more updates, and content to the platform than I’ve managed to do since I started the platform.
Now If I can get this type of work done every day. I’d be a much happier person.
So herein lies the question. “How to live a productive and meaningful life”
To answer this question we must first outline what brings meaning to our life. So what is it? What brings meaning to your life?
Okay… So what makes you happy in life? This means this is a purpose or goal you are aiming towards that makes you truly happy. A guiding light. A north star you see every day that guides you on your purpose.
Now run to your nearest window and look outside up into the sky, you see that ⭐?
That’s your dream. This is something that you should be getting closer to reaching each day. Now if you're seeing that goal in the sky. Seek BetterHelp. This is for metaphorical purposes only… Moving on...
I created an outline in ! These are a list of things that bring meaning to my life. I also have a FREE outline I created which helps yu find meaning and purpose. You can find this on the downloads page. Check it out below. Much more downloads on this topic on the way.
is now and has been my go-to everything planning app for over a year now. So much so that I forget I have other apps installed.
https://zapier.com/blog/best-productivity-apps/I love planning out my life. I cherish the feeling of accomplishing things in my life no matter how minor they may be. This is the secret to my productivity. This app! I’ve also used paper, planners, Google Keep, Evernote, Onenote, and simple code editors. We’ll circle back to this in a bit
Bonus note no one asked for.
I will be creating and developing my SIMPLE note-taking app “kodobook”. This app will link everything in my download page, and function a lot like , which I’ll also be creating my own reusable written/digital “kodobook v2”… Moving on… MORE ON THIS LATER
The main 10 things on my list that bring meaning to my life in order:
These are my top 10 outlined points that create my meaningful life. What were your top 10 essential things on your list?
Oh wow… You have quite a bit…
And oh... You over there reading, it's okay. You just need to take the time to think of all the things that bring you joy in your life.
My north star is my number 1 item. And it represents all the elements of myself. And when I have kids, it will still be my #1. You may have a person or a family listed as your number one. That’s perfectly fine. For me most of the things listed on the list will feed my legacy for generations. Thus they need to remain my top priority in life, and people will come after.
It’s not to say they aren’t important. They are. I just don’t live for others… I think about it this way; Whomever I end with will be grateful I kept them by my side while focusing on the top meaning in my life… These things keep me happy, grounded, and functioning perfectly.
If I kept a person as my number 1 priority, the kodoverse wouldn’t be a top priority. Similar individuals such as Steve Jobs were completely devoted to Apple. His legacy (his craft) brought meaningfulness to his life no matter how it treated him. It even came before his children. The same went for Elon Musk and other great gladiators throughout history.
For some there, kids and family were a driving force that kept them focused…. All subjective… We are all different…
The things in my life revolve around productivity. It’s no surprise all I produce is productive in nature. Producing results brings me joy… When I fall off the productive route I feel incomplete. When a companion becomes my pure focus I fall off.
It needs to be a pure ecosystem and balance if I were to include someone else.
We all have different goals in life. If you're a kodoninja, you may have found more similarities on my list as opposed to those that aren't regular to the platform.
… This is the king of productivity apps. If you use a different app please let me know in the comment section below. I use , by having everything planned out through various pages and lists. These things are:

This will keep you on track… I am living a fairly productive and meaningful life. I’m happy I am seeing the number one focus in my life become more and more developed as more content and updates flood the platform. I’ve dedicated my life to my work. With the help of tools in apps such as , and by using . It has helped me tremendously.
Take a look at some of the notes I’ve taken in my custom .
Also, take a look at some of the notes I’ve taken in my dead tree format.
As you can see my notes are vast and range from scripts for YouTube, and article posting to updates and code pushes to the kodoverse platforms.
Conclusion The awesome factor (isolation/multitasking)
If you're having trouble staying productive try to isolate yourself from distractions. As in going to a library, a park, or a quiet place. It helps if you live alone or have a room. Use a pair of headphones, noise isolating is preferred to keep yourself zoned in.
Or… Implement distractions while you work. Check out the picture below.
At this very second of writing this article I’m simultaneously watching “Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex Complete Series” I do this with YouTube, other anime, movies, and even other articles or books that will read at the same time writing or coding…
I have mountains of digital books that I read while I code or write and a collection of movies along with streaming…
The way I see it if your gonna be lazy. Which I am. Why not get shit done at the same time. I’ll even listen to music or audiobooks while I work as well…
📝 Now, this takes some practice to master effectively. I think I’ll write an article and later a book on how I’ve managed to do this for years.
Since I am a minimalist I only keep the essential things in my life. Other than the clothes I wear Almost everything “I own” revolves around the kodoverse. Producing content for the platform is what I live for. There’s a rush of dopamine and joy every time I acquire something that helps me produce content. If a sudden rush of happiness rushes over you when you are doing something you know this activity brings meaning to your life.
