I recently read this, I think on Instagram, and it strikes me as world-changing for us creative-types. Like, most mornings, the first thing I do is check my phone to see all the alerts that came through while I was sleeping--my first act is to consume.
And I thought: what could I accomplish if I don't do that until after I write my pages?
It's something I'm working on. It's not easy, breaking the habits that happen when you're still mostly-asleep. But I'm working on it.
What could you do, if you did your creative work before phones and email and life? Hell, even before breakfast?
