A round of free Work Cycles are scheduled for June. People always dig these, a good way to get a lot done —
On LessWrong, I wrote up some simple observations five years after starting mindfulness meditation —
The GDPR sale is the most popular type of sale that we (very rarely) run, the +1 sale that winds up being 66% off. That'll be live today and tomorrow. Even if you're busy in July, feel free to click the link and read the page if you want to smile. Perhaps I'm biased, but I dare say it's entertaining — at least, we had a lot of fun writing it.
Here's to peak performance, happy GDPR day,
So, this is pretty cool.
At Ultraworking, we developed a "Work Cycles Generator" to automatically create fresh templates of our work cycles spreadsheets -- a little useful if you're doing Cycles solo, incredibly useful if you're doing Cycles with friends.
Well, Gordon Yoon was a participant on Ultraworking Pentathlon IV, and he started using Work Cycles for coding work at Google. He said, "I'm getting tons of mileage out of the Work Cycles on the daily! Using work cycles at work, for coding… it's been awesome. It's such a powerful tool."
Gordon then coded up automatic graphing into a new cycles template that displays how your energy and morale changes throughout a work session.
Gordon was very kind to share his template, and it's really cool and useful. If you click this link, you can get a copy of Gordon's energy/morale-graphing version of the spreadsheet. Instead of entering high/medium/low as before, you enter how you're feeling on both of those from 1-100, and on the second tab, you'll get a graph of how your energy and morale change over a work session.
Being embedded squarely in the middle of the fast-growing mobile revolution, our company has a unique perch which I've wanted to codify into a vision document for some time. I finally found time to do it, and the resulting video is below, along with the slides below that. I'd love your thoughts & comments on what points you agree or disagree with, and why.
Here's the video:
