Issue #18  (Why Books Don't Work) 06/17/19

The story quoted in the subject line of this email (final link below) isn't necessarily one that you'll learn a ton of productivity lessons from. Maybe the main underlying principle that stands out is that you should always ask for what you're worth.

And yes, the 'static HTML page' that the author claims to have built was absolutely worth what he charged, based on the actual effort and hours put in.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!

Tools & Apps

WBO - Online collaborative whiteboard. To collaborate on a drawing in real time with someone, just send them the page's URL.
