I enjoyed this brief post from Hypebot, the music business and tech blog, entitled “12 simple ways to be a happier and more productive musician“. Although it’s aimed at musicians, it could frankly apply to any creative professionals, and includes suggestions that echo our thinking about personal and professional effectiveness, including the importance of knowledge and skills acquisition, exercise and general health, steering clear of negativity and keeping out of debt. I personally would have added something about mindfulness and digital downtime in there, but it’s a good list nonetheless.
