A tweet thread on how to think about work, stress, and downtime aka recovery, in the context of being “creatively productive”.
Look for ABSENCE of recovery not PRESENCE of stress.
Q: How do we maximise potential over both the long & short term?
Working too little doesn’t produce results - wasting present potential for creation.
Working too hard burns you out - sacrificing future potential for creation.
Stress happens, so ensuring recovery really means knowing what you as an individual need to do to recover.
How do you monitor that you’re recovering well, and feel inspired and creative to take more things on again?
