N8tip is here to help you get a little bit better better every day! Personal development is a challenge - but a challenge worth pursuing. To improve means change, and change is not comfortable. But as Benjamin Franklin brilliantly explained, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

N8tip is a resource dedicated to helping those in the pursuit of self improvement become more organized and productive … and thereby maximizing their true potential! N8tip was launched in June 2007 by Nate Just. For more about Nate’s vision for N8tip, read his first post Confessions of a Chaos Whisperer.
