A few things worth sharing: 08-30-2020

Shitty first drafts and accelerating fasts.

Read Time < 1 minute

Here are a couple of things I thought were worth sharing:


Shitty First Drafts (an excerpt of a chapter in Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott)

The author says that almost all good writing begins with bad first drafts. As I’m writing my book, I can certainly attest. These terrible first efforts, she argues, lead to clarity and sometimes brilliance in our second and third drafts. An encouraging read for anyone discouraged by their initial efforts.


Working out as a way to accelerate the benefits of a fast (Peter’s IG video, August 2020)

In case you missed it, I recently whiteboarded out my logic for how I use my workout on the first day of a fast to accelerate the benefits.

  1. What might it take to train us to encourage “shitty first drafts” with our VERBAL expressions?

  2. I think visually and conceptually thanks for the white board.
    I have wondered how the glucose production worked, and now I know.

  3. Dear Peter – greatly appreciated your very clear explanation (with white board diagram) of why and how you use your work-out on the first day of the three day fast to accelerate the onset of autophagy. Kind regards. Iain
