The Million Dollar iPad | I’m Scott Grossberg and This is How I Work

The iPad Lawyer | I’m Scott Grossberg and This is How I Work

By Scott J. Grossberg, Esq.

Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown your own voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition,
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.”
– Steve Jobs

For some time, the wonderfully entertaining and informative site, Lifehacker, has been running a “How I Work” series. Various people are interviewed and together they explore and learn about what makes these people tick . . . From their favorite apps to their preferred gear and, of course, how they work. Lifehacker hasn’t gotten around to asking me to be part of this series, yet . . . So I thought I would do it myself. Many of you ask during my live events how I crush my day-to-day workload. Well, here’s a sampling.

Location: Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Current Gig:
Creator (that should nicely encompass me being an author, public speaker, executive coach, attorney, and magician)

One word that describes how you work:
Passionate

Current mobile device:
iPhone 5s (Space Gray)

Current computers:
iMac (with dual display), MacBook Pro (Retina Display, 15-inch), iPad Air (128GB), and iPad Mini (128GB)

What apps/software/tools can’t you live without? Why?

I live in either iThoughts HD (for iPad and iPhone) (http://toketaware.com/ithoughts-ios) or XMind (for my desktop and laptop) (http://www.xmind.net). Both are mind mapping tools that sync with each other. These tools mirror the way my brain works and allows me the greatest flexibility for my workflow. I still long for Lotus Agenda and I’ve now created my own Lotus Agenda replacement with these mind mapping tools.

Next would be Notesy (for iPad and iPhone) (http://notesy-app.com/) and Notational Velocity (http://notational.net) or nvALT (http://brettterpstra.com/projects/nvalt) (for my desktop and laptop). These are how I capture quick thoughts, reminders, and even record my time.

I’ve started using Siri a lot more. I probably dictate about 30-40% of the time now. I find it truly effective and efficient to dictate several emails in one Notesy entry and then break them apart later into more formal email transmittals. And when Apple’s iOS 8 is released, Siri is going to be even more compelling and omnipresent.

GoodReader (http://www.goodreader.com) is my filing system for my iPad and iPhone. It’s really the Swiss Army Knife of apps.

My handwritten notes are usually captured in a Moleskine (yes, I keep a terrestrial journal) or in an app called Noteshelf. (http://www.fluidtouch.biz/noteshelf).

Naturally, I work a lot in my calendar – it’s how I manifest what I want to accomplish. So I am going back and forth between my desktop/laptop Outlook program and Pocket Informant Pro (http://pocketinformant.com) on my iPad and iPhone. They sync back and forth and make my life easier.

What’s your workspace setup like?
My office kind of looks like Mission Control. I have a dual monitor iMac setup. Dual monitors make me much more effective and efficient. I may even move to three screens at some time. I also have a Wacom tablet hooked up so I can draw digitally or make notes as needed.

I also have a standing desk. My MacBook Pro usually sits on that so I can move freely around without losing time.

Naturally, my iPad goes everywhere with me. When I’m traveling, my workspace is made up of my iPad, iPhone, personal hotspot, Apple TV, and extra batteries for the iPad and iPhone.

My workspace really isn’t complete without workout equipment (I like to keep moving). I have a Bosu ball, TRX suspension cord, a large stability ball, and a medicine ball in my office. I make it a habit to periodically take breaks and exercise.

What’s your best time-saving shortcut/life hack?
Planning, scheduling, and actually participating in my own success. I find that most people spend much of their time mostly reacting to what Life throws at them. I like to plan, plan, plan. That doesn’t mean that I’m not flexible. But, I know what I want to create and accomplish on any given day. And I’m ruthless about not participating in and eliminating anything that doesn’t further my grand designs. I like structure. And I like routines.

What’s your favorite to-do list manager?
I keep a Moleskine journal that is carefully configured to track my to-dos. For more complex and fluid projects, I will use iThoughts HD and XMind (mentioned above) to create elaborate action item workflows and deadline tracking.

Besides your phone and computer, what gadget can’t you live without and why?
My iPod. I still use the old iPod Classic. It’s got 160GB of storage and holds my entire music library. I must have music around me.

What everyday thing are you better at than everyone else? What’s your secret?
I’ve been told that I’m very organized and have a systematic way to make certain that things happen when, where, and as they should. I think that’s really a manifestation of my ability to see patterns in just about anything and everyone. I look at those patterns (even my own) and connect them to what I want to have happen.

Results are very important to me and my clients. That means I start with the desired result, first, and then systematically create a workflow and flight plan that will take me (or my clients) from where I am to where I want to be. It’s a very scripted and structured progression that has improvisation time built into it (no matter how much you plan, Life has a way of throwing you surprises).

What do you listen to while you work?
I listen to all kinds of music. Neil Diamond is my favorite artist. And I’ve really become enamored with Delta Rae lately. I usually set up custom listening stations on iTunes Radio.

I have been experimenting with ambient noise, as well. Take a look at coffitivity.com, rainycafe.com, and soundrown.com for some ideas of what I’m talking about.

Is there anything else you’d like to add that might be interesting to readers/fans?
The world is moving so fast and technology is changing so quickly that many people don’t think they can keep up. I promise you that by just employing a few, simple systems and creating a habit of success, you can achieve what others think is impossible.

If you enjoyed this, I’d be grateful if you share this with others. That’s right, go ahead and help spread this information by emailing it to a friend, or sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.

The Million Dollar iPad – Rancho Cucamonga Seminar

The iOS at Work Seminar

. . . How-To Make Your iPhone and iPad Work for You

by Scott Grossberg


Do you know you could be saving time and being more profitable if you could just figure out how to use technology the right way? You’re not alone.

Most people either don’t have the time to understand what they really need in the way of apps and accessories or they’re just overwhelmed with the sheer quantity of information. Stay that way and you won’t keep up with your competition and – worse – your client’s needs and expectations.

Fortunately, there’s an answer.


1.  On June 27 – in my Rancho Cucamonga conference room – I’m offering an incredible 3-hour “iOS AT WORK” seminar. You’re going to learn how to use your iOS devices (your iPad and your iPhone) in your business to save time, be more effective, and be more productive. You’ll walk out with more confidence in your technology, less stress by using apps that I’ve already tested and use myself to manage my businesses and make money, and you’ll have simple, proven workflows for running your own company, meeting client and customer expectations, and showing the people that matter that you’re innovative and on the cutting edge.

2.  You’ll be receiving ALL OF THESE:
Three hours of personal training with me.
You can ask all the questions you want.
Watch me demonstrate specific workflow techniques.
And be sure you’re confident in using your iOS devices.
A continental breakfast.
We’ll make sure you’ve got the fuel to take all this information in and make it a success for you.
A copy of my Kindle book, “The Million Dollar iPad.”
I want to be certain you have additional written material to refer back to and work through any specific needs at your own pace and in the comfort of your own space. You can even put my book on your iPhone and iPad so it’s as mobile as you are.

3.  It’s not just a seminar, it’s a way for you to transform the way you do business. You can become an iPhone and iPad wizard! The way to instantly reduce the amount of time for you to get comfortable with iOS devices in a business setting and to shortcut the learning curve . . . the way to get those faster, simpler, and easier results . . . is to stop following the Law of Insanity. I sound like Einstein when I tell you to quit doing the same things over and over again at work and expecting different results. Stop all the trial-and-error. You’re going to learn field-tested, business-tested, personally-tested iPad and iPhone workflow techniques and be able to instantly put them to work in your own company. It doesn’t even matter what type of business you’re in. This seminar will get you up and running with your iPhone and iPad faster than you can do it yourself.
