71. Awareness, Creativity and Self-discovery with Michael Ashcroft

• 50 min

David speaks with Michael Ashcroft, a writer and Alexander Technique teacher who previously spent 10 years consulting on clean energy innovation. A lot of Michael's work centres around helping people expand their awareness. He's written several essays and posts I've loved, particularly about the concept of grinding, and how paying attention to our awareness can help us maximise our creativity, productivity, posture and physical engagement. They talked about: ๐Ÿง  How mindset affects life efficiency ๐ŸŒŸ Managing awareness for productivity ๐ŸŽจ Balancing creativity and structure ๐Ÿ“ Developing a writing process ๐Ÿ’ก How to manage ideas and writing ๐Ÿš€ Paths to self-discovery This is just one part of a longer conversation, and it's the last of three short episodes.
