We resume our series on living, teaching, and creating during COVID-19 with words of wisdom from the brilliant O Tomas Bell. In this episode, we talk about redefining productivity, reframing our creative process, and finding inspiration in our current circumstances to make positive changes in our lives.

“I think the part that people often forget in terms of their own productivity is their emotional connection to that activity…Being productive now is not about the product. It’s about the process…We could make this a complete negative. Or we can reframe and explore and discover the positives.”O Tomas Bell
“I’m not a big fan of beating yourself up. I am a big fan of learning the lesson…It’s about making a conscious choice to do things differently in the future.”O Tomas Bell
“You can be isolated physically, but you do not have to be isolated socially…Don’t let your physical isolation disconnect you from the world.”O Tomas Bell
