As I get older, I notice the rhythmic nature of the year more. New projects emerge, get planned, develop, and so forth during different seasons. Here’s a quick sketch of hour my creative cycle plays out across a typically year.
Note: I read Smarter Faster Better by Charles Duhigg this weekend. I really enjoy Duhigg’s storytelling style, and found the discussions about mental modeling and analog data absorption fascinating. I kept wanting to build a scorecard of how my own productivity practices stack up. More on that later this week, perhaps.
