‘Design the perfect day’ defensively

Andrew Wilkinson cuts through the fog using anti-goals

Andrew Wilkinson and his partner Chris [insert last name here] determined that they would ‘design the perfect day’ defensively, by stipulating what not to do:

[…] we made this set of Anti-Goals:

1. Never schedule an in-person meeting when it can otherwise be accomplished via email or phone (or not at all)

2. No more than 2 hours of scheduled time per day

3. No business or obligations with people we don’t like — even just a slight bad vibe and it’s a hard no

4. Never give up voting control of our businesses, no favors from people who could need something from us (ensure the rule of reciprocity doesn’t kick in)

5. Work from a cafe across from a beautiful park where we can come and go as we please with nobody to bother us

6. Video conference or pay for people to come visit us

7. Never schedule morning meetings, sleep in when needed

I like it.
