Don't write 1,000 words a day 🙅‍♀️ - (StartupWatching #155)

Happy Thursday Watchers!
I’ve got a really important read for you today. I read Amy Hoy’s article, “Don’t write 1,000 words a day,” at the beginning of the week and knew immediately I wanted to share it in today’s newsletter.
This one hit me hard. For most of my life I’ve beaten myself up about not being productive enough. Self-discipline is an important trait and sometimes you have to grit your teeth and get things done. But if you’re consistently missing the mark try to ask yourself why instead of inflicting further damage.
Understanding what motivates you (and working towards that instead of arbitrary benchmarks) is a powerful thing.
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
