I'm starting 2021 with an ambitious planning goal - to work in 8 week cycles... with 2 of those weeks set aside for buffer and sabbatical rest. Will working less allow me to do just as much, but with increased margin?

Show Notes

A few years I ago I started testing 8 week cycles for my side hustle (YouTube, courses, etc). The idea is to focus on a specific project or goal for 6 weeks then take 1 week to buffer and 1 week to rest. It went moderately well as a YouTube schedule, but I was still working full-time at ConvertKit. Could I really take a full week off so early in my new company? Listen in and find out!

Apologies for being a day late! Had trouble with the upload all weekend 🙃

What is Connect the Dots with Matt Ragland?

Connect the Dots is a show about how different topics converge to form a new idea. We start from the perspective of productivity or creativity and how they intersect.

But one of the things that has proven most fascinating to me over the years is how many other topics and disciplines impact creative and productive work. Like how much is productivity impacted by the improvement of physical health? How does creativity increase when you learn from new sources of inspiration? It's these questions that form the heart of Connect the Dots.
