The Creative process of perfection, eating healthier, and a stoic way of life. It’s all good, and how are you?
This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. And in-between it all work needed to get done. Getting off track with my morning routine, finding it hard to focus on my own work, and giving myself time for a workout or meditation.
Whenever a week like that hits, I know it’s going to get better again. I have to let go of the moment. Slow down. Get back on track.
I hope you had a fantastic week. And if not: let’s make the next one better, just a little bit.
Let’s serve those sections:
With most everything that I create today, I have a very high bar of my own love for detail and quality. But it’s a struggle to keep that up. Especially when I commit to long-term goals and regular schedules. It’s fun to create, but I get tangled up by my own “but the video I made last year looks better” or “this article doesn’t feel as good as the last one”.
But the thing is: those thoughts are just rode-blocks. They are hindering the creation of something potentially helpful, informative, fun, or creative.
The conversation between Peter McKinnon and Chris Hau shows clearly that this is not just a struggle small creators or beginners have. It’s actually something everybody experiences, no matter how big their following, or industry (musicians, writers, and photographers experience the same).

While traveling it’s easy to get used to eating out. But with that comes my tendency to choose what might not be the healthiest option on the menu. I finally went to a local grocery store again and got myself some veggies, eggs, salad, and mushrooms. And as a bonus: taking the time to cook has meditative side effects.
How I went and minimalized my project count. Five steps that brought clarification and started the killing (of projects)… While living a minimalist life is amazing, it’s not all easy, and sometimes I miss areas in life.
As mentioned in last weeks email, I killed some projects. In this post, I discuss some of the things that happened before and that I hope to happen after.
