694: Removing friction

For a while now, I’ve been intentionally reducing the number of apps and services in my daily work flow.

This occasionally comes at the cost of features that I might like, but increases clarity, calmness and overall productivity.

Here’s a quote that sums up this idea:

The more complex a machine or procedure or set-up becomes, the less directly it applies its power. Simple forces applied intelligently should carry the day. This is no snub of wile or cleverness or inventiveness, only a caution against dissipating your efforts in the bother and friction of complication. – Jan Adkins, Moving Heavy Things.

This rough and ready podcast is free and happily given, but if you want to buy me a coffee from time to time… have at it.
