Everybody works a little bit differently and there is no perfect recipe for us to follow. But people need good role models, and so I like articles like this, which point to outstanding examples of successful people and delve into their day-to-day habits, thoughts and feelings. In this article, Jane McGonigal points to the importance of pursuing non-work objectives in order to accomplish work objectives. "Completing a training run each day helps me feel productive and accomplished, even on days where I hit stumbling blocks or unexpected challenges with the work project." This is the same for me. A good cycling run (like yesterday's) makes me feel accomplished even when nothing of significance was otherwise achieved. “The opposite of play isn’t work. It’s depression.”
