2019 was this newsletter’s inaugural year!
This year, we covered everything from financial literacy to procrastination to why reading fiction can make you a better leader. Each topic came with links to some of the best readings and resources we could find—and a themed song (we hope you were listening along!). You read our personal revelations, our serious business learnings, and our moments of pure silliness. In the first week of 2020, everyone at Holloway took a good look back at Good Work, so we could share the editions we loved most.
Guest writer Paul Millerd on how to discover what good work means to you.
Good Work Nº 35: “What’s necessary is learning to notice what we’re valuing as important.”
Andy on using procrastination as a signal. One of our most helpful lists of links and resources.
Good Work Nº 38: “If you’re learning to swim, and you don’t respect the water, you actually are going to drown.”
Andy on the learning process.
Bonus! In Good Work Nº 37, we shared an excerpt from an essay on the Holloway blog on why startups should hire for conscientiousness, by Technical Recruiting and Hiring author Ozzie Osman. We highly recommend taking a few extra minutes for this intelligent and heartfelt work!
Well’p, that’s it. If you have a favorite Good Work that you don’t see on this list, let us know on Twitter @holloway! Thank you to everyone who’s been reading with us, and we hope you’ll be with us for another great year. Stay tuned for the rest of January, which will feature guest editions by some of our favorite thinkers and tinkerers!
That’s Good Work for this week. Looking forward to what’s next—and a Happy New Year, readers!
