I’ve read conflicting views on this subject; writing quality impacted by health quality, the notion being that physical or emotional happy healthy feelings lead to mediocre writing; and the converse of that being that feeling ill, feeling distraught or feeling emotional pained leads to more insightful powerful writing.
I’m neither feeling over-the-top great, or poorly, physically or emotionally. If one believes this ‘theory’, you might think a little bit of effort could push me to better physical health and emotional well-being – but then my writing would suffer. Flipped around, if I let myself get run-down – if I eat poorly and don’t exercise or get enough sleep, then the writing should soar.
Couldn’t agree with you more Mark, this is the important stuff. But I’d also add things like customer service, making things that last and even technology companies making a product that works well, LH, Lethbridge, AB
