⚙️Productivity Tip🚀
Here’s a story to tell you why you should be wasting time!
Yes, you heard it right.
Picasso once drew a dove on a handkerchief for a lady and asked for a million Francs. When the shocked lady inquired, “How can you ask for so much? It took you five minutes to draw this!” Picasso rightfully replied - “No, It took me 40 years to draw this in five minutes.”
What we can learn from this is that time spent on seemingly useless things such as scribbling or aimlessly writing stuff can actually compound over time increasing its value beyond measure.
Use this as a rule of thumb,
In creative pursuits your productivity is not measured by your efficiency(outcome/time), it is determined by your output and how much you produce; even if it’s useless.
