Hey, team! We hope you’ve enjoyed a fantastic start to the week.
Our morning began rather nostalgically as we said ‘goodbye’ to three of Next Gen’s summer team members. We’ll miss you, Tom, Hunter, and Liam!
Next Gen continues to march along with our stellar community, and tonight we’re highlighting new authors, standout women, marketers, and more. Enjoy the goods below, curated with (lots of) love to add value along your journey:
How Phones Made the World Your Office (Jeff Giles)
⭐️What You Can Achieve in 15-Minute Bursts of Creativity (Herbert Lui)
Our two-cents on Lui’s article:
“Carving time into your day for yourself isn’t a selfish act — it’s the difference between truly excelling during your ‘on’ hours and burning out. Self-care looks different for each person: for some, the 15-minute approach works great, though for others, a Saturday spent creatively away from a laptop or lounging in the sun may be best. Entrepreneurs take so much weight onto their shoulders that it becomes necessary to find time to float without it.” –Rachel G.
