What I'm up to now
I quit my last job at Lyft in March 2020 to start an indefinite career hiatus. My girlfriend quit hers too, and we are spending our time together living in different countries around the world, working on personal growth projects.
I have several main goals for this hiatus, and am excited to have the time and mental bandwidth to explore them!
Developing better daily habits: sleep 8 hours, floss, meditate, stretch, exercise, and cook healthy food.
When I quit Lyft, I had hundreds of unread emails in my personal inbox even after filtering out stuff I'm not interested in. I also have countless notes I've taken on various topics that I want to organize, centralize, and migrate to new preferred tools (eg: moving everything I want to keep from Evernote into Notion).
I'm also figuring out what systems and tool combinations will work best for me as I start to develop better habits around reading, taking notes, writing up my thoughts, elaborating more deeply on ideas I have, etc.
I'm primarily spending my time right now learning about several subjects:
Starting with: fundamental knowledge in the areas of philosophy, politics, economics, and history
Then: Financial inclusion, sustainability / energy, education, healthcare, and urban planning / mobility
I'm making as much time as I can to read about these, and intend to write about them as a mechanism to (1) fully internalize what I'm learning, (2) share with others and refine my thinking, and (3) hopefully help others learn too.
I've spent 9 years working as a Product Manager and am now helping others to benefit from what I've learned throughout that time.
I'm doing interview prep mentoring, and career coaching, and product consulting for startups.
Always happy to chat and help however I can, just reach out!
