23. There's no such thing as the best morning routine.

43. My favourite productivity subreddit: reddit.com/r/NonZeroDay/
44. Instead of thinking: why am I so lazy? Why am I so poor? Why does this always happen to me? I reframe that question in a positive manner, such as: how could I have more energy? How could I earn more money? How could I enjoy it?
45. Growth Mindset is your productivity friend. Last year, I wrote in my journal: "I'm afraid I have no more levels to my intelligence." This year, I proved myself wrong.
46. Your brain is continuously flowing with thoughts, so don't let your creatives ideas build up. Put those things in writing in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming. For the love of all things holy, don't keep them in your head.

59. Change is happening whether you want it or not. Find flexibility in the way you plan.
60. Sit somewhere else to move your energy and thoughts to a new direction.
61. Read every day, but not when it's time to create. Trust that you know.
62. Find out how you like to work best. I like creating rules and structures for myself that I can break and rebuild.
63. Don't apologize for having a messy desk. But if you want your ideas to keep evolving you need an uncluttered space.
64. As soon as you publish your work, it stops belonging to you.
65. Use templates and shortcodes. Avoid starting from zero.
66. Do you want to discover new stuff about yourself? Gather data. Document the hell out of your experiments. Be a master of your life.
67. Life is a series of cycles and waves. Identify your peak energy times to work on the most challenging tasks and take advantage of your low energy periods for mental restoration.
68. Keep moving in a way that's sustainable for your wellbeing. Burning out is the worst.
