What happens to the dud weeks? Weeks can go by where it feels like no progress is being made.
I’m back for a short and sweet update, and I’m a little nervous to share that I haven’t really made any forward progress over the last few weeks. In fact, I’ve been avoiding recording an update episode because I want to be able to come back and show off a shiny new project—like, voila! Here ya go!
But my writing and building progress isn’t like that. The last few weeks have been full of work and deadlines, but I haven’t had space—or made space—for writing. Instead, I shipped important work and I still have a goal that’s on the back burner.
Here’s a short and sweet update from the writing cave, and what I’ve learned even though it’s been a lull for a moment when it comes to writing.
The Startup Pregnant Podcast Episode #131
SOME QUOTES FOR THE EPISODE
- It’s okay to have cycles that ebb and flow—you won’t make progress on all the things all the time.
- Taking space feels like I’m not being productive, but I can feel a sense of excitement and renewed enthusiasm brewing for my work, and that is an incredibly powerful and useful thing to have.
- Not all productivity can be measured or seen.
- Stillness is as important as movement.
