Love Your Work, Episode 20 – Kill Your Todo List (& Sell Your Ideas to Google)
Sometimes, the things you feel like you should do create so much cognitive burden you can hardly get anything done. When I feel that way, I know it’s time for me to have a “Week of Want.” I give myself a whole week where I can work on whatever project I want, without having to think about what goal I’m trying to achieve.
This has brought me great results many times, including writing a blog post, which connected me with Timeful, which later sold to Google.
I talked about the Week of Want a little in my interview with neuroscientist John Kounios, but in this mini-episode, I explain the technique in-depth.
