There is a huge and gorgeous difference between peak work and useless toil.

Get that difference deeply and you’re ahead of the pack (so terrifically caught up in the busyness of being very busy yet often not producing anything important and helpful).

I’ve been doing a ton of reading/learning/growing this summer and came across the 16th Century Latin root of the word “frustration.”

It’s “frustrare” and a handy term to deploy at your next cocktail or mocktail or pumpkin seed milk party.

All kidding aside, you really should know that “frustrare” means to disappoint.

And if you fail to block out all the digital noise, protect your daily work from trivial distraction and regularly lock yourself away in a metaphorical [or physical] cabin in the woods so you produce your magnum opus, you’ll not only disappoint all of us wishing you will win—you’ll disappoint the most essential person in your life.

[I explain my entire creative and productive process in my #1 bestseller The Everyday Hero Manifesto; definitely get your copy here].
