this post about creation and consumption. Last weekend, I spent an hour or so drinking coffee and reading Lean In and getting jazzed up to work on some professional development/responsible adult stuff I've been putting off. I sat down at my desk excited to get to work, but after making some introductory moves (pulling together work I've done in the past! creating a new file!), I hit the "this doesn't feel fun" wall. And I wanted to go back to the couch for more inspiration in the form of reading about Sheryl Sandberg's career path. It was the first time I really noticed the "inspiring story cycle" Elise writes about at work. Good to be conscious about the creation/consumption balance and making sure I'm making more time for the former.
