DeveloPassion's Newsletter #153 - Being There


Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩

This will be a short one because I'm exhausted (sorry :p)

This week, I've gone through my notes for the past few weeks. And woah, I wrote so little recently! I'm now spending a lot more time in traffic than I did last year. Since I moved, I have a 30-minute drive every time I bring the kids to and back from school, plus one more hour to get to work. It takes a lot of time and is quite tiresome. I try my best to read and write while I'm on the train, but with short days and little light, I often end up falling asleep 😂

As you know, I strongly believe in Zen Productivity principles, so I try not to worry too much. Energy comes and goes, and motivation/inspiration isn't always there, even though I do have clarity of mind about where I'm headed. It's all right. That being said, I do want to produce and publish more. So I think I need to find ways to free up more time to focus.

Alright, let's gooooo 🚀

The lab 🧪

I've published a few more articles for the Knowledge Worker Kit, but that's about it. I've been thinking about offering a discount on my PKM products for Knowledge Worker Kit members too. I think that it'll improve the overall value of that offering.

From now on, I'll have more time during the week to work on my projects, since I've pretty much lost my last consulting client (oops). We'll see how much progress we can make!

New articles
