It’s helpful to think of any career in the same way we think about major athletes.
You hear about million-dollar professional athletes getting frequent massages, or having a nutrition plan, and having exercise routines.
And we kind of just write that off as that’s an athlete thing to do.
But in reality, in any creative business, we can use some of the same concepts.
We can absolutely take massages, maybe use acupuncture, or take certain supplements in order to help our energy.
We can eat well, we can treat ourselves the same way that athletes treat themselves.
In order to get more, more out of ourselves, we’re constantly trying to squeeze productivity out of every single day to get words on the page, or to get our ads out into the world.
But it’s taxing, and it’s tiring, and there are a plenty of stories of burnout.
Personally, I go to a massage therapist, and I get acupuncture.
And I am very interested in things like personal training and nutritionists and dietitians.
Why? Because I know that if I treat my body as well as I possibly can, it’s going to impact my mind, which is going to improve my bottom line.
