• “I know what I want to do, but I’m not doing it …”

    grettascholten January 26, 2023

    When you know what you want to do, but you aren’t doing it, you’re waiting to FEEL like doing it.   Waiting to feel motivated. Less tired. More capable.

  • You don’t need “deep work” to be productive

    grettascholten January 21, 2023
