I'm kind of scared this email is going to end up in your spam folder because of the subject line, but—oh well. Gotta talk about it.
One of the reasons I started this newsletter is because I was fed up with unrealistic magic formulas shared by productivity gurus who sold people the dream of effortless success.
As you may know, there is no such magic formula. Successful people do work hard. What makes them successful is not a secret hack, it's the execution: the ability to work in a sustainable manner, over the long run, without burning out.
Beside this touchy topic, I want to discuss an interesting cognitive bias we all fall prey to: the planning fallacy. Whether you tell your friend you'll be here in 5 minutes, or miss a project deadline, the planning fallacy is often the culprit.
Finally, this tweet was so popular, I turned it into an article: whether you're an architect, a gardener, or a librarian, you'll find out how to pick the right note-taking app for your specific style.
Enjoy the read, and hit reply if you have any questions, feedback, or want to say hello!
