How I Quit Burnout issue #33 (Get it in your inbox next Tuesday)
Shortly after my company started us on Slack in its early days years ago, I had a profound moment. I was having a 1:1 meeting with one of my co-workers and she had her phone face up on the table in front of her. Nothing popped up on the screen the whole time. But I had four Slack notifications on my phone from a group thread we were both included on.
Why didn’t her phone light up, I thought? Why wouldn’t she want to get the alert right away?
