Ep. 12 Why You Shouldn't Move Your Blog to Medium, and Lazy Vs. Driven

In this week’s episode, we talk about some very interesting developments.

First, the team over at Basecamp decided to move their 15-year-old blog called Signal Vs. Noise entirely over to Medium. This is a big move for a lot of reasons. I can see why someone would do this, but the risks still outweigh the benefits. I’ll explain why in the episode.

Then, we’ll also talk about how driven you need to be to produce meaningful work. Some, like Gary Vaynerchuk preach that you need to hustle, hustle, hustle every day. Others like Cal Newport think intentional laziness is the key to productivity. Who is right? I do my best to answer that question in the second half of this episode.
