Relaxation and productivity

I know there is this whole thing in our culture that you’re supposed to be working all the time, under stress, pushing against the limits. There’s a kind of calvinist strain that says “no pain no gain.”

But I find that I am most productive and most creative when I find some nice relaxing place, with good light, pleasant music and very calm surroundings. I get myself a nice cup of coffee or cappuccino, lots of space to work, and just let stuff happen.

It is amazing how much more productive I am when I set things up properly to reward my mind and body, rather than punish my mind and body.
