Good Stuff: What I Used and Watched in 2020.

The Best Stuff I Used in 2020

Roam Research — A big thanks to Hilmon Sorey at ClozeLoop for this one. For the past two years, I’ve used the notecard system to categorize important quotes, lessons, stories, and frameworks from everything I read and do at work. But notecards aren’t perfect: They aren’t searchable, and it’s difficult to draw parallels between different subjects without spreading the cards across the table and manually flipping through them. Roam lets you create a personal database, journal, and knowledge repository that takes the notecard system to the next level. I’m still learning how to get the most out of it, but it’s become a super important part of my research process, journal ritual, and getting the most out of what I read.

The Best Stuff We Watched in 2020

Jojo Rabbit — The funniest, most heart-warming movie ever made about an 8-year-old boy and his imaginary best friend (who also happens to be Adolf Hitler.) Trust me on this one. It’s fantastic.

I help small technology companies build stronger teams and make the most of their growth opportunities.
