You are more than your productivity. Slow the fuck down.

Thanks Jon. This is so timely with the pressure of the holidays on top of the regular stuff. I’ve been asking myself why a lot lately. Why am I doing ____? Also, is there a different way to accomplish ____ I should consider?

I’ve learned that no matter how productive you are, the need to accomplish more grows with your efficiency.

Like a goldfish adapts to the size of his tank.

When I feel trapped, I switch tanks by switching my creative outlet.

It improves my perspective, and lessens those pesky self-inflicted expectations.

I’ve been writing less, lately but creating other stuff.

I made 4 different repurposed denim bow ties for my 4 boys for Christmas last Saturday night.

I didn’t follow a pattern.

I silenced the “shoulds”.

I didn’t worry about wasting my time or imperfections.

I just sewed.

And it was liberating.
