Catching a productivity wave
We all want it badly: To increase our productivity.
"Atomic habits" is a great productivity book and mega-bestseller; I'm sure you have read it (or at least have it on your shelf). The gist: Develop a productivity habit, in small steps.
This is what successful entrepreneurs are doing, isn't it? Linkedin superstar Justin Welsh is batch-writing posts and posting them like clockwork, daily.
When I am scheduling time to batch-write my content, it turns out bland.
What if the productivity advice is wrong? (At least for me)
What if there are other forces at play - invisible energy waves to ride that will carry you to go where you want if you tune in?
This sounds way more woo than what I want to admit to believing in, and I don't have other proof than that it feels true. My productivity comes in waves.
When I'm writing and drawing from a place of inspiration, they seem to resonate more with my audience.
I wonder: Would that mean I can relax in between waves?
What works best for you? Do you work like clockwork, or do you follow the surfer's approach? Or a mixture of both?
P.S. A note for those in the Visual Thinkers' Business Club: I have recorded a video of how I drew the surfing girl above in Concepts on the iPad. I put it in the Simple illustration course.
P.P.S. A note for those who are not in the Club yet: The doors are closed right now, but if you want, you can purchase "Simple illustration" as a self-study course, and maybe join later.
