Here is a rough transcript:
Hey, this is Justin. So when going on the theme of walking and talking this morning as the, as a way of working, and just had a conversation with somebody who was talking about his CEO, I made the comment that asynchronous work is something that's very important to me, it's something that I like to work on and, and just doing brainstorm.
So if I record a message to you an audio message, and I send it to you, a couple of different things happen, like I can record it at the middle of the night, which could be when, when I do my best thinking, and it's the best outlet from like, what's really going on in our mind to what is what's really going on in her mind to what is to sharing it was somebody else, number two, it can get too consumed on the other person's time frame. And number three, it can be consumed multiple different times.
Now it's beautiful a voice message is that can easily be transcribed with a multitude of tools like otters eye tool of choice, right now. But there's, I can easily be transcribed on the back end. And when it gets when it gets transcribed, that it can be that it can be broken down into different pieces to action items are broken down into knowledge blocks.
So it's a very, it's something that's very easy to produce, and can have a multiplier effect on consuming on the back. And now there's like how do we start to take away things or start to take away things that are that are take away the one number one take away overhead, which is like a tax on the stuff that we do, what do I mean by that?
When you set up a meeting, you got to at a minimum schedule that right you got to find the time that works for somebody else, then the other person has to accept it. And then you have to move stuff around, depending on the time and then typically one or two people is late for the meeting.
And then you go about and you Yeah, and then right, there's a big overhead that goes into it. Whereas with voice notes, they can be they can just be delivered in the moment and then consumed. consumed at the other person can be a dog read by here.
And so my dog got a little bit muddy going after the other dog. So yep, so and that is the ultimate and then we can start to process dozens if not hundreds of video of audio messages at one time.
So audio messages back and forth is number one the best way Now let me talk about the psychology of having to return things or not having to return things or having to go to take inbox zero or not getting vaccinated. Oh, we've got one here.
