    All the Bells and Whistles Without All the Bells and Whistles

    Drew decides that it’s time to investigate note-taking the way that task-management is often investigated! This sparks a long discussion on apps (or a decision not to use them), and how to avoid getting stuck in a space where writing just isn’t as easy as it used to be.

    It’s Where the Widgets Are

    Joe has done something out of character, updating to iOS 12 and Mojave with quickness. Drew asks why, and the two talk about Siri Shortcuts, dark mode, and a third-party app that makes both of their MacBook Pro setups so much sweeter.

    As Joe and Drew both grow their respective businesses, their usual task management talk transitions to a similar topic: team management. Drew gives the floor to Joe, who talks about why he manages projects and not people, and how to find the right system.

    Downtime Accountability Group

    Downtime Accountability Group

    Joe turns this episode into a confessional and makes a vulnerable statement: He’s a phone addict. Drew and Joe discuss our modern tendency to spend too much time on our devices, Joe reveals how he’s dealing with it, and Drew covers the ways that iOS 12 provides some ‘app limits’ of its own. Since iOS 12 gets brought up, so too does the other looming Apple beta: Mojave.
