Creating and Doing

How to win the lottery (via Mefi).

Against productivity.

How to shut down Tolkien (Mefi).

Don’t assume that the last one is only for programmers; it’s almost entirely about writers, and has lessons for anyone seeking to create anything. It’s made me reflect on my own efforts to create stuff online, and how and why they’ve dwindled in recent years; it might even serve as a spur to do something about it.

On that note: Dan Ariely on managing your time (via, erm, Time).
