I have a confession to make: I’m a natural-born over-packer. When I go on a trip, it’s very likely that I’ll come home with a lot of unworn clothes and unnecessary weight in my travel bag. This is a tendency I recognized early in my business travel days, and that over the past few years I’ve tried to mitigate just a bit by packing only the essentials. You see, the problem is that my definition of “essentials” is a little… broad.
On this episode, I share a few pieces of “extra baggage” that we carry with us as creative pros, and how to shed them so that we are lighter, more nimble, and better able to attach our work.
