A hypocritically productive newsletter

Friendzone

Hey friends,

I'm sorry. I've been slacking on this newsletter front a bit because I'm focused on book-writing. So instead here’s a Tweet thread I recently wrote about my top 10 productivity tips.

❤️ My Favourite Things This Week

  1. Audiobook - I've been listening to 9 lies about work this week, and it's been an incredible "read". I would 100% recommend it to anyone who's leading a team in any capacity and it's really been helping me on this journey.
  2. Songs - I've been revisiting the glory days of univeristy by playing old bangers by One Direction all week. In particular I'd recommend throwing it back to "Fools Gold", "18" and "Infinity".

✍️ Quote of the Week

"In the accumulation of material things, no deep satisfaction is to be found, other than fleeting pleasure and the temporary delight of impressing others. Both of these are short-lived (before we return to our default level of happiness), and ultimately controlled by other people or things."

From Happy - Derren Brown. Resurfaced using Readwise.
