The art of doing less – observations

Some observations I made while following the online course on CreativeLive on the Art of Less Doing with Ari Meisel.

People get stressed by how things work. Some other people develop an app / technique to lower that stress. Something that supposedly helps you out, makes you more productive, but then there are so many solutions to the same problem that we actually need a guide, who would review all those available solutions, test them out and pick the best for us. He/she figured it out for themselves, fine-tuned to address the challenges they face and then it works for them. Would it work for us? We don’t know, but we buy the guide anyway.

What I learned from the course:

  • if you have “what” to share, the “how” will follow
  • ideas of setting up an email based course
  • organization, like creativity, needs limits and will-power

What I will act on:

  • have a heard a few times about pomodoro technique by now – will try it out
  • restructure my DropBox
