Stories are in your DNA
“Story, as it turns out, was crucial to our evolution -- more so than opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs let us hang on; story told us what to hang on to.”
— Lisa Cron, author of Story Genius.
Don’t shy away from your mistakes.
Be honest with your team when you make an error, and encourage them to do the same.
An environment of honesty is the perfect breeding ground for creativity, productivity and collaboration.
Track your day
Don't waste your most ’awake’ hours on mundane tasks like emails when they could be better spent working on in-depth projects.
Track your energy levels throughout the day and structure your work around it.
High energy → challenging work
Low energy → simple tasks
