Top 10 Purposeful Jobs from PROJECT X





Looking for a job that's different & meaningful?





What's on our minds this week: Creativity vs Efficiency

We live in a world that is obsessed with efficiency, productivity, and getting the most out of every single hour we spend at work. (Just google "productivity hacks" for an endless list of things you could be doing to work faster, better, longer.)

Yet, when it comes to inspiration and doing our best creative work, it can be anything but efficient. There are no 'productivity hacks' to the creative process. There are no hard rules either, just observations that people in the creative roles have made over the years: show up, do the work (so have a routine, but don't let the burden of efficiency kill your creative spirit), and follow your curiosity. That should make for a much richer (if less efficient) life.

Purposefully yours,
Jeff, Greg, Yulia, Mada, and the Project X team
