Tell us something funny about you

My favorite food is leftovers. Meaning, I’d rather eat a mix of things I find in your fridge than eat some intentionally prepared food.
Thinh’s note: man, I can relate to that. I even believe that there are specific foods that taste BETTER when they are a reheated leftover

Show us your desk

My desk is anywhere I happen to be working.


What computers do use (desktop, laptop, mac or pc or both ?)
I use both a desktop and laptop computers.
The desktop is an iMac 27″, and my laptop is a 13-inch MacBook Pro 2015.

Note that I’m okay with PC, I just happen to have Macs.

What’s your current phone ?
I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S6.

What gear do you use for podcasting (mic…) ?
For my podcasting needs, I use a Blue Yeti microphone.

Is there any useful gear you can’t live without (printer, router,
analog stuff…) ?

Nothing that I can think of. I don’t have a printer. I go to Staples (the office store) if I need to print something.

Thinh’s note: Using Chrome without any extension ? Now that’s a feat.

The one productivity tip you’d recommend.

Work on priority management, not time management. Work on what matters most and not just doing what needs to get done. To do lists are the devil. Work instead from your goals and priorities.
