Next Gen,

Hey, team! We hope you’ve enjoyed a fantastic start to the week.

⭐️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.
