#121 Goals vs Systems (Part II)
This creative habit has made me hugely productive, here's how it works.

Today I bring you a long-overdue follow-up to the most popular letter I ever wrote, waaay back in November 2019 (Oh, halcyon days!)
It was about creative productivity, particularly James Clear’s distinction between a goal and a system as ways of getting stuff done.
I took Clear’s advice to heart and since that letter was published, I’ve filled a dozen sketchbooks, written and drawn 26 short stories and entered three national comics competitions.
Today’s letter is all about how my creative system works — I think you’ll find it both simple and useful.
Until another Sunday soon,
