This newsletter’s taught me a lot - that a lunatic, redneck neighbor can be an ally when properly mollified with edible marijuana products, I overuse adverbs, and consistency over intensity results in a hefty body of work without a single nervous breakdown!
Prior to starting the MoaT, my work habits were pretty much textbook dysfunctional - long hours, high stress, with precious little to show for it other than burnout. Over the course of writing something everyday for fifteen months, I’ve learned to trust daily micro accomplishments over bursts of idiocy masquerading as self-proclaimed genius.
I stumbled upon this video today. I don’t know why Simon Sinek’s credited as the speaker, but the content’s spot on, a neat breakdown of why intensity’s glorified but, ultimately, damaging as a go-to.
