There is fire there, which is great, otherwise I will not be able to carry out creative and productive work without getting tired. what's happenin?

I subscribePaul JarvisNewsletter, the author is still outstandinga companybook. In a recent email, he wrotefire:

[…] Sometimes I think I can work hard […] I call this fire. When I have "Fire", I can do hard exercise or cross the finish line with my own writing. Fire gives me energy, motivation and determination.

I am really related to this concept. On fire days, I can write 5 blog posts in a row and code them for the rest of the day. I have all the fuel I need.

Fire

In this photo, I did have a fire when I was writing

Sometimes, I can't do anything.

The problem is that "fire" does not always exist. And I can’t just call it […]

Cannot ignite on demand. You can create a perfect environment for it, but you can't stir it like it burned in those days.

[…] Causing a fire is a balancing act. If I don’t charge, the fire will go out, but if I keep working hard, it will burn everything. This year, I am trying to make the "fire" burn to a healthy flame.

In those days, when I started a fire, I might hardly do anything and sat at my desk for 14 hours. I really appreciate that there is no fire every day, it is really unhealthy.

I am indeed very active, weighing 60 kg (~132 lbs), so I have no weight problems. However, even if the chair is very ergonomic, you can sit at the desk for a long time, which is definitely something you can feel at night.

There is fire there, which is great, otherwise I will not be able to carry out creative and productive work without getting tired. This is something I am very careful about, because I have been under a lot of pressure in the past and I know what it will be like.

Therefore, I’m also grateful for fires from time to time, and I’m learning to recognize fires in the event of a fire, so I can do things that are not strong but still useful, such as listening to podcasts and watching one of the videos I marked as "watch later" , Can reduce stress, such as answering emails, doing housework or just rearranging or cleaning things in the house. And since my schedule is very flexible, I might also be able to take a walk.
