In the past few years or so, there has been the steady rise of “hustle culture”. In essence it refers to the idea of glorifying workaholism. The stock images with motivational quotes, and hashtag based one-liners are at best cringe inducing. Even less said about self-help books – it is after all infinitely easier to tell someone to work hard as opposed to doing the damn thing on your own. While I do my best to stay away from productivity porn, I do want to recommend one unconventional source of this – daily routines of interesting folk. A particularly interesting source for this is the Daily Routines blog. The blog itself is not active now, but is a treasure trove of how famous people went about their day. It ranges from Darwin and Murakami to Benjamin Franklin. Makes for fascinating reading and is perhaps even a tad inspiring !
