I’ve recently done my quarterly retrospective. One of the topics I chose to review was my workflow, especially in a remote work context. A couple of recent years accelerated the remote work movement.

It all begins with an idea. Two technical leaders came to the realization that they both enjoy the same thing. I met with my co-host, Pete, ages ego. We have worked together for almost a decade.

Atomic Habits – the book that was recommended to me, and I wanted to start the new year 2020 deliberately reading it. It was an excellent choice. The book explains how “psychology” of habit works, what we can do to help us to create and sustain good habits, and how to get rid of bad habits from our lives. I decided to try a few things that were recommended. I made a few new goals for 2020. After a few months of following the tips and tactics from the book, I would like to share a few that work for me exceptionally well.Read More »Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones
