After a talk I gave today, a student asked me for one piece of advice… Here’s what I said —> https://m.signalvnoise.com/habits-always-form/
At #wsjfuture, @jasonfried says the office of the future looks like public libraries do now. Quieter, designed for solitary working, better all the way around. As someone who loves working in libraries I am ALL for this idea
