A Fresh Take on Creative Work, Productivity, Human Behavior and Habits

Hello, I’m Gregory Ciotti.


If you’re the type of person who loves seeing well-established research applied to practical lessons about growth and creative work, you’re in the right place.

Let’s ditch the positive psychology drudge in favor of honest looks at being a little more awesome than you were yesterday.

That’s what my writing aims to address, and if that sounds interesting, you should join the free newsletter.

You’ll be in good company with the 27,487 other friendly folks who read the newsletter just last week.

To join, simply enter your email below and click “Sign me up!”

I’m also humbled to say that my writing has been linked / featured by the fine publications above; it motivates me to keep my publishing standards high.

Perhaps my favorite compliment about my work comes from a reader who said “This is the least annoying + most useful newsletter I’ve ever subscribed to.”

I try to keep things interesting, I rarely email, and I guard your privacy like a mother bear guards her cubs (no spam, no games).

So give it a try, it costs you nothing but a few seconds of your time, and you can unsubscribe in a single click if it’s not for you.

More about me? I studied developmental psych and neuroscience in college, I currently work for a software company, I talk with my hands, I have a loving Italian & Irish family, and I own a pretty impressive Super Nintendo collection.
