Jason Fried: Optimizing efficiency and work-life balance

2 hours and 24 minutes · October 7th, 2019

I really enjoyed the 2,5 hours long conversation between Peter Attia and Jason Fried, co-founder of Basecamp. They spoke about achieving business success in a modern world, aspects of work-life balance, and what it means to “work hard”. If you are interested in Jason, you will learn something about his backstory and the creation of Basecamp.

Shaping, betting, and building

1 hour and 28 minutes · 16th August 2019

After reading the book Shape Up from Ryan Singer, I was curious to learn more about it. Luckily there are several podcasts around where he was interviewed. After listening to almost all of them, I found this one most comprehensive.

How consistent writing makes you a better designer

22 minutes · October 21st, 2019

If you are a designer and want to become better in what you do, then start writing. In this episode, Eugeniu is talking about how consistent writing will help. To be honest, I never was much of a writer. When this website was only about my photography, I was not too fond of writing a text to each post. Even writing my Bachelor's and Master's thesis wasn't always fun. My native language is German, and it took me some time to became more fluent in English writing. Like often in life, things change. I realized how much writing helped me structure my thoughts, communicate more explicit, and help others to grow.
