What is your favorite item in your workspace?
- Physical item/tool: I love what the Grovemade shelf does for my workspace aesthetics and organization.
- Digital item/tool: Things hands down. It's easily one of the most carefully crafted apps and as someone who heavily relies on GTD, it's indispensable in my workflow.
How do you spark creativity?
I love sketching and writing to spark creativity. Quantity > quality for me when it comes to getting the creative energy flowing.
