001: Jason Fried – Whose Schedule Are You On? - Hurry Slowly

In a world where scaling fast and exponential growth are the watchwords, Jason Fried pushes against the rushing tide. As the co-founder and CEO of Basecamp, he has committed for 18 years running to building his business in a calm, measured, and profitable manner.

Jason is also the co-author of numerous bestselling books. We spoke as he was writing his latest, The Calm Company, a testament to the power of a slow and steady approach in the workplace.

Key takeaways from the interview:

  • Why the “expectation of immediate response” has been the most momentous change in the way we work over the past 20 years
  • How to set boundaries and put “hard edges” in your day so that you can leave work at a reasonable hour
  • Why real-time conversations distract us (hint: they feed your ego), and how to shut them down in favor of more considered, thoughtful debate
  • How Basecamp breaks its workflow into 6-week cycles, and why short timelines keep team members motivated, engaged, and focused
  • Why you should consider ditching technologies like the “shared calendar” which could be doing your business more harm than good
  • How you can push back against an over-demanding boss who is trying to usurp your time outside of work
