I recently have been watching a Netflix show on the Juventus football team and something amazing happened. In spite of being a huge Liverpool fan, I found myself celebrating their win over Tottenham! Was this because I was becoming a fan of a team that is new to me or is it actually from learning the history and traditions that surround this club?
Believe it or not, this got me to thinking about work productivity and how much time we spend looking at what is new vs. what is established. I took some time writing a post about this and the work of Ramit Sethi that showed me that we may be hurting our work by wasting our time.

I recently moved from Mailchimp to Mailerlite for my newsletters. In doing so, I first set up all the automations and then added all subscribers, only to trigger a ‘Welcome to my list’ for everyone. Sorry for that!
When we develop a new application, when we post content on the Internet, whatever we do that people will have access to, we should consider just for a minute if our contribution will add up to the level of dumbness people are exposed to. If it does, we should refrain from going live.
Until next time , Anton
