TOPIC: Updates on Productivity and a modern Kobayashi Maru Scenario
This week, Dan and Merlin start a new series on updates. Which sounds really boring, but it isn't, we swear.
This time out, the boys start by diving deep on how and why just so much of their productivity systems have changed over the years. Innumerable ways in which technology and life has evolved to where so many of the old systems seem fiddly, unnecessary, or both.
[This is a good one.]
