Why do I recommend it? Because I feel this is where @mikeschmitz’s “secret project” is headed. But that’s just how I feel.
These random facts are what my hunches are based upon:
- Mike has said several times on the podcast that he is re-writing “Thou Shalt Hustle” and @joebuhlig mentioned a “secret project” of Mike in the BASB episode.
- Mike’s latest newsletter (“42 of My Best Creativity Tips”) is to me a huge tell (see tips 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 36 and 38)
- Mike uses productivity apps less and less, relying mostly on Obsidian. Thus, he has narrowed his reliance on productivity and instead expanded his reliance on creativity, as per Madeleine’s choice of words for the titles in chapters 1 and 2 of her book.
