> The work is the same but it feels purposeful.

It's interesting to think about. I feel like we're often sold on this idea of finding the perfect "work." But even in my experience, it's almost never about the work, itself. Personally, the people I work with have a lot of impact on how I feel at work. Same work, but different vibes with different people.


Face Gym sounds amazing. Now that I know I won't have to hang weights from my chin, I might give it a try!

And all the best with the Tokyo marathon, Jen. Have a good run... is that the right expression? 🤔 😅

People, and more specifically the right manager, can make or break the whole experience of a job.

Yes- that’s the right expression. Thanks Alvin!

“When you feel overworked, it wears you down. Then you stop showing up for people in your life.”

So true and not just for the seemingly “get-no-thanks” roles. Can even happen in a role you’re enjoying but you get overloaded.

And it’s got to be NYC for something like a “face gym”. 😂

Hope you got the time you were looking for on Sunday.
