Hey all,
How is it going?
I am listening to the book Essentialism by Greg McKeown. I’ve been spreading myself thin lately. Saying yes to too many things. It wasn’t an issue before I had a kid because I had the time.
Now with work, trying to run a startup and being a mom, I can’t say yes like I could before. I also end up giving more than I receive. I need to find a balance.
The book has some good tips on setting boundaries and applying more selective criteria for what I choose to work on.
With work, learning and other things you have going on in your life, if you are also struggling like me, I recommend the book.

Anil Dash is… Dark Mode
If you are an underrepresented person in tech and are able to do so, talk about your work so loudly and so consistently that people say you’re arrogant or full of yourself or bragging. And then keep going. Because anything less than that, you will not get the credit you deserve.
