12/4/2018
More
I feel strange. I'm not quite as busy as I could be, and it's giving me more time for chats and side projects, but I'm feeling like I am not really doing anything productive. Why are we so tuned to feel like doing paid work is productive, but doing exploration, investment in yourself and future-facing work is less important?

#45 The Will Smith Effect | Breaking Free From Comparison

11/25/2018
