Personal story intertwined with productivity stuff

1.⭐️5 star for the productivity tips and systems. Great observations, if I want to apply some productivity system on branched creativity world, I would 1 use Davids.
There are some nice tips, observations and connections, which would probably be more digestible separately:
Great point that state of mind/attitude matters much more in certain areas then time frame (and maybe in much more then we think).

2. Davids Personae and a bit of mine
I think that being a great writer is still only Davids dream and wish, but maybe in the future he will really become one with all this tools he prepared for this journey. For now he is not for me in comparison to others - even in the self help category, but they dont say they are writers about themselfs constantly. David should decide if he want to present those tools, himself and his life or some actual creative work (personaly I would present those parts separately). I think he dont have that much talent for writing, so it takes more work, but it is a bit presented like he was already there. That does not say he didnt created a good podcast or is not a good graphic designer or dont have interesting life - his narative about himself just dont corelate with the reality in my eyes (I dont know all Davids work - to this time I read Heart To Start, this book and Davids newsletters, heard some podcast episodes). David is a bit narcicistic self obssesed control freak (at least a little bit) with his ego and reason is to create a legacy in books (and other creative work). A am actually very similar, so Davids life is kind a study for me, some narative triggers me for the same reason and some projection could be present too. For the same reason I like to donate by buying Davids books (donate because I think the price is relatively high for the actual extent, but thats debatable) and I hope Davids journey will be really successful at the end (especially for him). Being the same type as me, I think David have same tendency to overstructure things and life as me, but I think he is dealing better with it - in that he is my example. David reminds me that writer from Easy series (on Netflix) for whom everyone was his his therapist... Anyway, I am staying his fan.

3. Precision versus creativity
Some examples (or stories from Davids life) wasnt really needed and was redundant in my opinion. Some neurology stuff (like short term memory) should have been explained with more scientific precision when they were used like they were in the book. I think there are combined relatively precise scientific findings with authors personal views and experience - thats not necessary for the point or productivity, but I would like it declared. Thats the problem of trying to write productivity - more science, practical based book with artistic depiction of ones life. It would be better separated (I think). Now its all about David with adjunct creative productivity advice.

4. Personal story intertwined with productivity advice.
As I mentioned at poing 1 for the productivity advice I would give 5 stars - despite in some points its more good collection (and connection) which was already said in other forms. So if they would be only the productivity stuff (with real life examples, thats not a problem), I would give 5 stars in self help category. I would even give 5 stars if there were a separate, more detailed Davids life story book in the category memoirs/personal stories. But in this, a bit chaotic, combination, its ⭐️4 stars for me overall, maybe a little less (but I am counting other Davids works that adds up to this book).
