📚 3 Good Articles for You

What do you do when a project ends? We explore creative grief and how to deal with it
by Danielle Pender (10 mins)

  • Creative Grief After Projects: After the completion of a creative project, many artists and creators experience "creative grief," a profound feeling of loss, emptiness, or sadness similar to mourning. This can manifest in various ways, including fatigue, sleep disturbance, and a sense of disconnection from others.
  • Reasons & Responses: This grief often arises due to a sense of identity or purpose loss after dedicating so much energy to a project. Once it's complete or out in the public, there's a sense of loss of control and connection. Psychologists suggest that taking the time to process these feelings, rather than rushing into new projects, is essential for mental health.
  • Coping Mechanisms: Those who've experienced this grief recommend seeking a support network, reflecting on one's purpose, and focusing on the journey rather than the end product. Acceptance of these feelings, coupled with diving into new creative endeavors and practicing self-compassion, can help mitigate the impact of creative grief.

There Is No Truth in Business, Only Knowledge
by Cedric Chin (12 mins)

  • Business is driven by "knowledge" (predictive models) rather than fixed "truths."
  • As industries evolve, previously held truths can become obsolete, leading to business disruptions.
  • Emphasizing predictive knowledge over static truths promotes adaptability and agility in decision-making.

don’t take mindless notes | obsidian
by Kemal Tekce (2 mins)

  • Taking notes mindlessly in Obsidian or other platforms can lead to forgetting the information quickly and not truly understanding the content.
  • Rather than just transcribing, notes should be a process of explaining, elaborating, and connecting the information in one's own words to deeply understand and remember it.
  • While taking notes, ask three key questions: "What is it?" (Reframe and explain), "Why is it important?" (Reflect and elaborate), and "How can I use it?" (Reuse and connect) to enhance understanding and retention.
