In this week’s episode, we talk about some very interesting developments.
First, the team over at Basecamp decided to move their 15-year-old blog called Signal Vs. Noise entirely over to Medium. This is a big move for a lot of reasons. I can see why someone would do this, but the risks still outweigh the benefits. I’ll explain why in the episode.
Then, we’ll also talk about how driven you need to be to produce meaningful work. Some, like Gary Vaynerchuk preach that you need to hustle, hustle, hustle every day. Others like Cal Newport think intentional laziness is the key to productivity. Who is right? I do my best to answer that question in the second half of this episode.

I used to think it was a silly waste of time to think about a vision for my life. Who does that?
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.
We all fall off the horse once in a while. You committed to something with the best intentions, you even started strong, but now it’s been weeks since you did anything about it.
My first day on the job as a consultant in a boutique Fortune 500 tech consulting firm went like this. I took the 6am flight from Portland to Houston, arrived at work groggy but got right down to business.
Do this, then do that. Watch for when this happens and make sure never to do that.
