When you meet a friend for a leisurely catch-up it helps if you agree in advance if you’ll walk, jog or cycle. It isn’t easy to hold a conversation if one of you is walking and the other is trying to balance on a bicycle at 2mph. Inevitably the cyclist will end up begrudgingly pushing the bicycle. Fixing this is easy.
Choosing your mode of transport with purpose is like choosing your digital tools for communicating. Works better if we think in advance what we’ll use and what’s the point.
We’ll meet face to face for solving X type of communication
We’ll use email for Y type of communication
We’ll use trello for Z type of communication.
