Remote work. Async-first work. Four-day work weeks. Pay based on value, not location.

It’s awesome to see great experiments and culture shifts happening across the tech industry. These perks seem to center around employee trust and longevity rather than churn and burn.


Mac Studio – Day One

The Mac Studio I ordered the day after launch finally arrived, and it’s been so worth it. It’s been an incredibly fast and responsive desktop, and I love that there’s now an Apple desktop that makes sense if the iMac doesn’t suit your needs (like if you own a Pro Display XDR). I decided to set it up from scratch as a new machine and document all of the things I did on day one to get it configured for my daily workflows, and wanted to write it all down.

We live so much of our lives being afraid. Afraid to try. Afraid to speak. Afraid to be different.

But if we give into that fear, we’ll be left with something worse: regret.

So do that thing, write that email, and be yourself. Even if you fail, you’ll be grateful you tried. ❤️


“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

– Steve Jobs

It’s been almost three years since I last wrote about my remote work setup, and a lot has changed in everyone’s lives since then.

But first, let’s talk a little bit about remote work almost two years into the pandemic.
