What you do outside of work can improve performance and productivity at work. Ever felt revitalized working on something that’s completely unrelated to work?

  I spend a lot of time on Twitter – the whole FlowReader team does. It’s a great place to connect with new people, engage with your community, and discover great content. Twitter’s interactive nature is part of what makes it so popular, but it’s not without its own set of challenges. There’s a lot to learn and it’s easy to make mistakes (we’ve made a lot) regardless of whether you’re just…

These days, we are constantly exposed to information.

I use FlowReader every day at work to help me with content curation and keep up with news in the industry. Using our own product encourages the team to honestly evaluate FlowReader, and it’s one of the best ways for us to learn how to do better. In other words, we eat our own dog food. When I first started working on FlowReader, I’d never used an RSS reader regularly.…
