#402 Can you avoid negative productivity?

4787d001-4c4d-4342-976e-791e7537dc1c

Hello amazing!

We talk a lot about being productive and efficient: get sh-t done. But in creative work, I think the biggest risk is not low productivity but negative productivity. That is, when what you do create more distracting work for you(and others). And you would be better off if you just stopped. This week, try to notice if you get into negative.

With love.

#401 Perfectionism and true aspiration

fcb467a3-3ee7-44fe-876e-f0624e26731b

Hello amazing! And welcome to 2015. I recently found myself beating myself up for not living up to my own standards. Why? I kept telling myself that I need high standards to grow. What was missing was a perspective of time. Without time there is no aspiration, just perfectionism = focus on always being not good enough. Give yourself time.

With love,

Mathias
