I am a big fan of Rosemary Orchard; I was very excited to hear about her new productivity podcast called Nested Folders. While I don’t know how I feel about her co-host yet, I am delighted to hear more about how Rose works.
The second episode introduced a new term to me, “non-zero day.” The concept is not unique; essentially, it’s: make progress every day. I like the term non-zero day because it signifies that any amount of effort, even a fraction, is better than zero. Ideally, that non-zero effort snowballs into a more significant effort, but it does not need to for me to count the day as a win.
When I am sitting on the couch at the end of the day, I am going to make sure it was a non-zero day.
