Let's start with the "productivity" tools. There are so many out there now. After years of jumping between different ones, I've focused on 1. No, 2. Actually, 3...
Each one serves a slightly different purpose.
- Obsidian is my second brain and journal. Offline, private, flexible
- Notion is for pages I need to share with someone else that looks pretty. Like guitar teaching
- ClickUp is for tasks and client work. Structured and great automation features built in.
I'm using ClickUp to draft my newsletter. Check out the snapshots here: https://twitter.com/notiondad/status/1625131196916109350?s=20&t=0ienD0vhzbaqIhgIJFVPjw
It's a short one today. Stop taking quick calls on Slack or Teams. If someone says "do you have time for a quick call?", ask them what they want a call about so that you can prepare.
9 times out of 10 you'll be able to answer their question without the need for a call.
"Hey, you. Feeling a little tense? Take a long, restful stroll down a thread of starship corridors."
That's the tweet that caught my eye. I'm not a Star Trek fan but there's something peaceful and strangely beautiful about this thread of empty starship corridors.
