Winter Citrus

Finding the color in February

  • My book in the news: Last month, I talked with the fine folks at First Round Review about the power of listening in a startup setting. I had a great chat with author Greg McKeown (Essentialism, Effortless) on his podcast. And if you’re the type of person who is curious about how people work and the tools they use (I know I am), you might enjoy this brief profile of my work set up on Uses This. For my Seattle-based friends, I hope you’ll join me at Town Hall Seattle for a talk about listening at the end of the month (also available on livestream for out of towners).
  • 🕵🏻‍♀️ The Rest Trials behind the scenes: Regular readers of this newsletter know that I’ve begun to experiment with rest trials, personal experiments for getting well-rested, based on research for my forthcoming book. Once a month, I share these experiments with a small group of folks who have opted in to test them out with me. If you’d like to give these rest experiments a try, sign up here.
