🌏 Remote work

Some tools I find very useful when working remotely (everthing is free unless explicitely stated):

  • Akiflow: a slick TODO app that allows you to connect multiple tools and create new notes from anywhere with a single keyboard shortcut.
  • Gather: A virtual office with an 8-bit visual touch.
  • RescueTime: allows you to track your time and start FocusTime sessions to block all kind of distractions (FocusTime comes with the premium vesion, for $9/month).
  • Anti-RSI: reminds you to look away from the screen every now and then, and to take breaks ($4.99).
  • ScratchWork and Excalidraw: the best shared dashboards I've found so far.
  • Don't touch ya face: if you have habits you want to get rid of, try donttouchyaface, it's free and privacy preserving.

Some habits that are even more valuable when working remotely:

  • Meditation: I highly recommend Sam Harris' app: Waking Up ($15/month, but you can get it for free if you don't have much money and send a nice email).
  • Sport: at least once every other day. It doesn't have to be intense, but I need the endorphins.
  • Gratitude journal: a great way to keep it up is to write daily in a gratitude journal.
