Bryce discusses why 'lazy' creators are the ones that produce work that matters, why being busy can be bad for your business, and comedian Mike Birbiglia's tips for succeeding (as a freelancer and as a person). 

 

Episode Summary

In this episode, Bryce addresses:

  • The labor illusion: when it comes to judging other people’s work, we want to feel they wore themselves out for us -- not necessarily if the job was done quickly or well.
  • The time that really matters to creators
  • Why nobody spends more than four or five hours on their primary creative tasks
  • The difference between deep work and shallow busy work. 
  • What defines a day well spent
  • Comedian Mike Birbiglia's 6 Tips for Making it Small:
    • Don't wait
    • Fail
    • Learn from failure
    • Maybe quit
    • Aim for small successes
    • Cleverness is overrated and heart is underrated
