When it comes to "workplace productivity," it seems like there's always a new way to get your inbox to zero (folders, people!). Or to get more done without freaking out. Or to, um, move with the cheese. But we've always found that, while some of these work when you diligently implement them, it often feels like more work, not less, to keep them up. That's why we loved today's VSL link: They linked to a blog that compiles the daily routines of creatives-you know, writers and the like. The through line here appears to be that there isn't one.Creatives, it seems, are best off creating their own rituals, even if it means procrastinating the day away like Kafka, or working from bed like Emily Post. Then there's the genius Colette, whose prolific fifties were buoyed by light meals, massage, hanging out with attractive young people, and athletic sex with her third husband. Sounds like a recipe for success to us.
