Now

Clint

I’m Clint Brown, and this is my “Now” page. The “Stuff” I’m working on at the moment lives here, it’s sort of a mind dump of what I’m up to:

Quick Note, this page is not listed on my site, so if you do stumble across it, please send me a quick hello, by commenting below, or via the contact page. I found about about “Now” pages on Tim Ferriss’ podcast #125 with Derek Sivers, it’s awesome check it out.

Covid Isolation update:

I don’t want to whine about not being able to go out. I’m extremely privileged to live in a home, with space for my wife and I to work from home. I’m even more grateful that we are both still able to work amid this crisis. I have family members who are effectively unemployed as a result of all of this, and it is quite scary. The uncertainty of it all can be overwhelming.

It’s fantastic to see the lockdown lifting slowly, my team in the Holland seem to be a few weeks ahead of us here in the UK, they are coming out of it much faster than us. Let’s hope that the infection rate continues to go down, and that the death rate goes to zero, so that we can get back to some sort of normality.

To keep myself sane, I’ve been getting out of the house for a daily walk with my wife, it certainly helps break the monotony of back to back Zoom calls!

Email Optimisation:

I hate email, over the past few months, I have been working hard to minimise the amount of email that I get. I have a massive set of rules that mark and file email, so that it is pre-sorted before I get to it. I’ve un-subscribed from most newsletters and just when I thought I was on top of it, I started receiving Corona Spam. Airlines seem to be missing me and they are sending a lot of updates, which I am instantly deleting, I understand that their business is suffering, but I have no desire to book anything right now!

I for one cannot wait for the day that email goes the way of the fax!

Keeping myself honest: This page was last updated on the 18th of June 2020 at 06:42 AM, it is a rainy overcast day in London.
