hallo! i’m gail.
sometimes people ask me how i stay organized, get so much done, and approach all sorts of problems. i’m doing my best to document the answers here.
my life quest is to become the best possible version of me. it's not a very well-defined goal, but it means i'm always looking for ways to improve myself, and i take it pretty seriously. this is a space where i can share some of the stuff i've learned.
about gail, the human
i have a lot of fantasies about what the world would look like if people:
made decisions with intent (rather than defaulting to the default)
developed a strong sense of compassion for others and themselves
learned to approach problems like scientists
learned to express feelings and appreciate beauty like artists
increased their self-awareness and checked for blindspots
adopted a growth mindset
spent equal(ish) energy on play and ambition
understood and valued the importance of sleep
invested in developing talent via deliberate practice with a coach
about gail, the productivity & personal development nerd
i’ve been working in silicon valley for nearly a decade, specializing in generalist / person-of-all-trades roles. i’ve worked with dozens of managers and executives and hundreds of engineers in a variety of tech environments from gigantic company to tiny early-stage startups to a non-profit ai research lab. i invest time into figuring out how to live and work smarter and have learned a ton along the way.
