“At its best, the sensation of writing is that of any unmerited grace. It is handed to you, but only if you look for it. You search, you break your heart, your back, your brain, and then — and only then — it is handed to you.”

Unplug after 90 Minutes

Unplugging or taking a break after 90 minutes is not opposing your work in any way, but is a part of your work.

Taking a break only enhances your work quality, so that you are at your best after returning.

Long-term success depends on how well you manage your most important resource: yourself

Your brain works best at certain times of day, so learn when these times are for you, then plan your schedule in a way that lets you use your brain at its best.

“I like to think of mindfulness as one of those maps in a shopping mall with a big red dot that says, ‘You are here.”

You can change your attention span

To get better at concentrating, start small.

  • Choose only one task or point of focus. Clear all other things away or shut them down.
  • Look at your environment. Do you work better in silence or with ambient noise? Is your chair comfortable enough?
