We all suffer from a profound case of “Idea Surplus Disorder” at Filament — and we think that’s a good thing. Here are some of those ideas we’d like to share with you.



MMM #12

Happy President's Day!  It's time for another Monday Morning Meeting. Ready to go?

The Idea:  If you sleep 8 hours, you have about 1000 minutes left in your day -- essentially 100 ten-minute blocks.  How are you using them?

It’s always good to step back and think about how we’re using those 100 blocks we get each day. How many of them are put towards making your future better, and how many of them are just there to be enjoyed? How many of them are spent with other people, and how many are for time by yourself? How many are used to create something, and how many are used to consume something? How many of the blocks are focused on your body, how many on your mind, and how many on neither one in particular? Which are your favorite blocks of the day, and which are your least favorite?  Imagine these blocks laid out on a grid. What if you had to label each one with a purpose?

The Quote:  “It is surprising how much one can produce in a year, whether of buns or books or pots or pictures, if one works hard and professionally for three and a half hours every day for 330 days." - Leonard Woolf
