I have said many times that learning is a lot more like exercising than it is like storing stuff in a computer. Thatès sort of the sense behind this post. John Spencer asks, "But what if the relaxation you get from creative work is closer to the relaxation you feel after working out? In other words, what if creative work actually includes work? What if there's a certain grind to it that ultimately leads to success?" To me, that's what it is - writing this newsletter, for example, is a creative exercise that makes me feel good and makes me smarter (well, I think it makes me smarter).
