    Wonderful. Everyone should watch this and incorporate these concepts. I have been doing something similar for years and I always find I meet or exceed my own and other’s expectations for producing quality work. Thanks Jess for helping spread the word : )

    Jess, this is the best talk I have heard in a really long time. Everyone needs to see this. Thank you for sharing it – I will be passing it along as well!

  3. I’ve passed it along, too. I love the metaphor of sprinting used against creative productivity.
