How we work

"We’re interested in the habits,
rituals and small (and occasionally big) methods people and teams use to get
their work done. And in the specific anecdotes and the way people describe their
own relationship to their own work. Here’s a list of some stories and habits.
Not sure it is actually useful for anything. Do any patterns emerge across
stories, other than the obvious stories of super-focus,
super-dedication?
These examples are mostly "names"
because the list so far is mostly from published sources, but everyone’s stories
and habits are interesting…
