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 very glad 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 larger 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.
