What happens when you slack off? Bad things usually, but is there a good way to slack off? And if there is, how do you do it? In this episode, I interview Conrad, a university pal who's now a senior developer at Slack.

But he wasn't always a senior developer—like every functioning adult, he had to go through his own ups and downs to get to where he is now. In this episode, we talk about a few things that I regularly get asked about as a teacher.

  • High school indecisiveness: Good or bad?
  • Working smart: Does it exist?
  • The importance of saying yes and being uncomfortable: Should you actually do this?
  • Building your own luck: Yes, it's possible
  • Sci-fi and fantasy book recommendations

Also, if you're looking to try Slack as an alternative to email, I highly recommend it as a way to communicate with your colleagues. And finally, no, I'm not getting any type of benefit from bumping Slack, I just really like it.
