Hello December 🌲,
Continuing my effort of curating parts of the internet. The December edition! This month we’re starting with a podcast and three great reads. As a bonus I added some end of year lists I found inspiring. Share your recommendations in the comments.

🌸 The No-Brand Strategy
Muji is one of my favourite brands. This quick read gives a nice insight into the brand and how it operates. For me, they stand out in consistency and quality.
☑️ The Case For a Schedule vs a To-Do List
I’m a fan and practitioner of Getting Things Done (GTD). My workload as a digital strategist is often made up from smaller and bigger projects. The bigger projects have set deadlines and in order to meet them I schedule time to work on them. Scheduling time for bigger projects allows me to work through multiple tasks in the project and sometimes finish it as a whole, staying true to the GTD methodology of course. This article makes the case for scheduled time vs primarily working from a to-do list.
Bonus: 3 end of year lists to inspire you
