Remote Work, Consistency, & Creator Economy
I went to the office after more than 2 years (I had started remote work back in 2019!).
It is a huge shift with repercussions on my daily routine and energy levels. Setting up a house in a new city, commuting, interacting with real people- everything feels exhausting for now.
More than that, it is the extra mind space I miss which I used to have while working remotely.
That is particularly important because writing still takes a major chunk of my day. The mind space is valuable to come up with ideas and accelerate the writing process. I find it tough to have that space when you are constantly surrounded by people.
While hopefully, I will adapt soon, this brings me to what I have been reading this week.

This is a few months old yet it is the most comprehensive thing you can read about the evolution of remote work in three waves and the future.

On Consistency from Wait But Why- Shared by Dickie Bush
Not just in writing but in any creative endeavor, the power of consistency still holds to carve an identity from habit.
Time and again, I have often grossly underestimated the power of small, consistent actions.
I had almost made up my mind to not send this newsletter today because I thought I won’t have time after work. But then revisited the above quote last night and here I am at 7 am in the morning trying to finish this up before work so it can go on time!!
I believe some public commitment also leads to consistency!
Thanks to you who have kindly subscribed and agreed to become a part of my journey! 🙂
