Sunday Brief - Issue #13

Hey,
Welcome back to Sunday Brief, this is issue 13 of my weekly email newsletter for creative professionals where I share my thoughts, inspiration, life lessons and interesting reads from that week.
This week has been one of those full on weeks in which the time has just flown and I’ve found that my usually protocols have been slipping. However, as I’ve mentioned in one of my most recent blog posts, having solid routines to “fall back” on, allows us to have the discipline required to succeed and gives us almost a “sign-post” to get back to peak performance.
So without further ado, let’s dig into this weeks brief.

What I’m thinking about
Despite not sticking as rigidly as usual to my protocols, in someway not having the “pressure” of sticking to certain routines, allowed for a somewhat more spontaneous week in which my wife and I hosted a lunch for the first time ever!
Alongside perhaps the more obvious feelings that accompanied this sense of stepping further into adulthood, it was extremely interesting to see, for the first time in a long-time, the value of physical human interaction and community which is often referred to as a pillar central to human experience.
No doubt I’m still a big believer in the correlation between structure, protocols and peak performance, but lately I’ve been settling on the need for some “wiggle-room” in life to just either:
  • a) Do ‘nothing’.
  • b) Think deeply about ideas, problems, ideas etc.
  • c) Try new things (i.e hosting a dinner or lunch party with new people)
Try breaking your usual routine this week and see what happens, you might surprise yourself. If you don’t like it you always have your routines and habits to fall-back on.

Resources for creatives
As a Senior Partner at a leading creative agency, I’m always on the lookout for new tools to a) keep me more productive and b) help me do my job better. Check out some of my favorite tried and tested tools:
  • Notion - My all time favorite note taking/productivity app
  • Digital Ocean - My go-to tool for spinning up blogs, websites and more
  • Webflow - The tool I used most often at work to Build better business websites, faster. Without coding
  • Landbot.io - Used both personally and professionally, Landbot makes it intuitive and easy to make both simple and complex chat bot experiences. The best part is, it’s a no-code tool.
  • Coinbase - There’s no better time to start building up a crypto portfolio. Coinbase is my platform and wallet of choice. Join via this link and get some free Bitcoin!
