Episode 471: A Big Sense Of Relief

Daniel learns about Manton’s decision to hire a contract developer to help with server/backend stuff. They talk about the tendency to minimize the real cost of performing the many small steps in any project, and the productivity boot an extra team member can bring. Daniel tells Manton about his new “Must-Do Monday” strategy, with which he must spend Mondays committing to some long-overlooked items on his todo list.
