This week we discuss the recent Royal Wedding, ponder why 37signals are selling Sortfolio which appears very profitable and have a roundtable chat about our approaches to achieving a work life balance.
Good show, guys. And particularly pertinent as I’m about to go freelance full time.
great) love music and cant live without it) radio is a very good thought! best wishes from me to you) and thanks for being so cool)
At first I found it difficult to get into this podcast, but now it’s my favourite web/design/tech podcast. The dry British humour and general banter is awesome, so thanks goes out to you guys!
Some of the comments in this episode pertain so precisely to my setup it was shocking. Like when Ryan talks about how he’d try to read a book but in the back of his head he’s thinking about reading tech blogs etc. I think it’s visceral once you jump onto the tech-blog bandwagon. Almost like following a real-life drama between the tech giants. The tech world changes so fast that it’s really interesting to stay in touch with the news on a day-by-day basis.
Stuff about Mike Kuss and never-ending work, I’m in exactly the same boat. At some point you have to call it a day even though you can squish more work in on weekends, nights whenever. The parallels between you guys in particular and the way I operate (even though I’m an aussie working remotely from Rio de Janeiro) are pretty amazing. Thanks for the podcast, always good to have a laugh and here about how others work.
Thanks for listening Bill!
I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.
Loved the talk on Work/Life balance. With having a baby 10 months ago and launching our startup at the end of last year, it’s been crazy. So important to not lose focus on family. I have had to discipline myself to not look at my computer or phone from when I get off work at 5:00 to about 7:30 when the baby goes to bed. Even though a quick look at the phone doesn’t take long to check out our latest stats or emails, it causes me to mentally check out for a little while. Great talk guys!
