Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.


Idea 💡

"For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase 'the play of ideas' and think that they need to knuckle down and work more. Often, the reverse is true. They need to play." — Julia Cameron

What would it look like if it were fun again? What expectations have stolen your joy?

Action ✅

Lose the expectations, heaviness, and burden. Get back to basics and have fun again this week.
