00:00

I'm going to call I'm going to write a

00:00

note and say it's going to be called how

00:02

Andrew can be a better

00:07

person list of ways to improve Andre see

00:12

I can't improve when I never have an app

00:14

for that list so it doesn't matter there

00:16

too many characters for my alarm apps

00:18

I'll

00:23

forget what is up people of the internet

00:25

welcome back to another episode of the

00:27

wait for podcast but it's a bonus

00:29

episode this time you can tell because

00:30

we have new people and I'm in a

00:32

different chair oh I didn't even realize

00:34

Collide that's new okay we're your hosts

00:37

I'm Marquez I'm Andrew and we're joined

00:39

by David Pierce hello thank you for uh

00:41

thank you for hopping on with us thanks

00:42

for having me it's fun to like be here

00:44

and do this with my internet friends in

00:46

person we've done it before but at Apple

00:48

campus weirdly enough that was our first

00:50

time this is cooler this is this is

00:52

Cozier uh if you don't already remember

00:54

David Pierce host of The Verge cast

00:57

editor at large at The Verge fellow

01:00

productivity app nerd and that's exactly

01:03

what we're talking about today I

01:04

hesitate to call this an

01:06

intervention but it's kind of how it

01:09

feels you waited till right now to use

01:11

that word a little bit Yeah so on the

01:13

right side of the table for our audio

01:15

listeners David and I uh have been not

01:18

just using but experimenting with

01:20

playing with trying implementing ruining

01:23

our lives with all of these productivity

01:26

apps for the past couple years probably

01:28

a little too much but on the other side

01:30

of the aisle Andrew is either way

01:33

smarter than us or has a bunch of

01:36

unlocked potential ruining his life on

01:38

the other end of the spectrum Andrew

01:40

uses uh the alarm app we've talked about

01:42

this as literally a task manager

01:47

reminders like that's the maximalist

01:50

that's as far as it goes right pretty

01:51

much I mean we have notion for work we

01:54

do even sometimes with that if I really

01:56

need something to get done I put an

01:58

alarm for it yeah so I think uh I think

02:01

this is our opportunity to like expose

02:04

you to the the world that you could live

02:06

in of of like second brain software yeah

02:10

I think the goal for the end of this

02:12

episode is one of you should convince me

02:15

to use an app and if I get convinced I

02:17

will use it

02:18

for we'll see and if we can't Marquez

02:21

and I have to both live our lives out of

02:22

the alarm app that and that I cannot do

02:26

I yeah I respect my job too much I feel

02:28

like this whole company crumble to the

02:30

ground if that happens I just will not

02:32

get anything done this is something

02:34

actually my dad has said before but I

02:35

say the same thing like if you tell me

02:36

to do something and in that moment I

02:38

don't write it down trust me I'm not

02:40

going to remember so I I'll start my my

02:44

opening my opening convincing argument

02:47

with the human brain is an amazing

02:51

computer right it's it's very powerful

02:54

it has incredible AI obviously it has a

02:57

neural engine it has an optical image

02:59

process processor it has all these

03:00

things that are amazing for a computer

03:04

but it has one critical flaw the memory

03:08

only fallible that's the only flaw the

03:10

human brain as a computer the memory is

03:13

fallible and so you could think you

03:15

remember to do something you could tell

03:16

yourself to remember something but it

03:18

may not remember you may lose those bits

03:20

and bites and so the reason that I'm so

03:24

into this software augmenting my brain

03:26

is because that memory is not infallible

03:29

that will stay that will work and then I

03:30

can sort of plug it into my brain as

03:32

like a puzzle piece as uh the way to not

03:35

as a way to complete myself as a

03:37

computer if that makes any sense am I

03:39

making any sense no it makes total sense

03:40

and I think I would just add two things

03:41

one is that uh do you ever heard people

03:43

talk about decision fatigue like why

03:46

like a Barack Obama we the same suit

03:48

every day or why Mark Zuckerberg always

03:49

wears gray t-shirts or whatever well

03:51

he's a robot but that's where I'm going

03:54

we're all Rob no I think the the point

03:56

is that uh there is at least I

03:59

experienced it in a huge way this

04:00

feeling of like I'm supposed to be doing

04:03

something or I was supposed to have

04:05

remembered something or something is

04:06

going on and there's just this like

04:08

latent constant anxiety of thinking

04:11

about all of the stuff happening uh and

04:14

you and I Andrew are both new parents so

04:16

there's even more of that because I

04:18

haven't slept in forever and I have to

04:20

remember to like keep my child alive so

04:22

for me it's it's not just like having a

04:25

place to offload all of that stuff it's

04:27

having a place that I know that it is

04:29

MHM M uh and I think like I always think

04:32

about my own brand as like do you have a

04:33

drawer full of like thumb drives and

04:35

memory cards and memory sticks and it's

04:37

there's just a thousand of them and

04:39

you're like I know the thing I need is

04:40

on one of

04:41

these but my options are either I'm not

04:45

either I'm not even positive what I'm

04:46

looking for but there's something in

04:47

here that I need which is terrible

04:49

outcome or I know what I need and it's

04:52

on one of these but what do I do with it

04:56

and I feel like my entire product

04:57

productivity Journey has been trying to

04:58

solve those problems yeah yeah and my

05:01

own brain is both of those things at the

05:03

same time that's fair I'm I'm going to

05:04

interject here and say nothing either of

05:07

you have said I disagree with you okay

05:09

that's good yeah yeah I would say and I

05:11

would say I have the same feelings as

05:13

both of you do in a lot of these senses

05:15

okay you're just more comfortable in

05:16

your chaos than we are I don't even know

05:18

if comfortable is the term maybe

05:19

thriving in anxiety works sometimes um

05:23

but and it's funny you mention being a

05:25

new dad because arguably the only

05:28

productivity app I have out side of my

05:30

alarms app is the Huckleberry app which

05:32

is like the very newborn like I need to

05:34

make sure she's eating enough and

05:36

pooping consistently and sleeping and

05:38

taking naps so that is one thing that

05:40

Claire and I together are consistently

05:43

I'm logging things in that all the time

05:45

so maybe that's that is my gateway drug

05:48

into the life of productivity that needs

05:50

an ocean integration that's what it

05:53

is that is really interesting okay I

05:55

think uh what I thought would be really

05:57

fun was to give you some hypotheticals

05:59

some hypothetical situations that I

06:01

could propose that would maybe convince

06:03

you that it would be more likely that

06:05

you would get the thing done if you had

06:06

a better tool to do so CU from what I'm

06:09

hearing you're not against maybe trying

06:11

some productivity apps or I don't know

06:13

you don't necessarily need to dive into

06:15

the deep end with it because there's all

06:16

kinds of there's so many first of all

06:18

yeah but they also all have different

06:20

pros and cons and different capabilities

06:22

and different weaknesses but you're at

06:25

least down to hear how they can plug in

06:27

I'm down to hear I'm open The more I've

06:30

thought about this episode The more open

06:31

I've become because at first I said

06:32

Marquez I'm not doing this it's going to

06:34

be boring when I do nothing at the end

06:36

of it because I'm still just going to

06:37

use the alarm app um but you know what I

06:39

got a new phone so it kind of feels like

06:41

new phone new me and like maybe it's

06:43

time to add some things and it deleted

06:45

all of my alarms so I don't have any of

06:47

those anymore to that point though this

06:49

is one of the things I was wondering for

06:50

you is um it's not like you don't spend

06:54

all of your time with somebody who talks

06:55

about this stuff incessantly uh no I

06:58

hear it maybe that's part of the reason

07:00

why I haven't made I was wondering is

07:01

like is it do you feel like the system

07:04

you have like works and why screw it up

07:06

in the name of just some cool app that

07:07

might not solve your problems or like

07:09

what what has kept you in the alarm app

07:12

world all this time I'll be honest it's

07:14

stubbornness it's not like no I don't

07:16

think I'm running smoothly I think if

07:18

you had the opportunity to call my wife

07:20

right now she would be like no he does

07:21

not do all the things that he says he

07:23

will do or I ask him to do so I'm

07:26

consistently forgetting things I mean if

07:28

it's super super important

07:30

I I will remember it or it will be in

07:32

the alarm app and that's how I'll

07:33

remember it but like there's only so

07:36

much I'm going to put in there and there

07:37

are definitely times where I get to the

07:39

point of like this needed to be done by

07:41

Friday and I've had an entire week to do

07:44

it and there was plenty of time to do it

07:47

but you know there may also be an there

07:50

may be an element of overexposure as

07:51

well cuz I've talked about it being like

07:53

almost what did I call it like my toxic

07:56

toxic trade I call it yeah where I will

07:59

will I will have everything I need in

08:01

one productivity app which I I literally

08:03

did this two days ago I have both the

08:05

apps in my doc which is hilarious I've

08:08

used a to-do list app a calendar app and

08:11

an email app and notion for however many

08:15

years and I'll see a new one and the

08:17

problem is the websites are always so

08:19

pretty oh they're so good they're always

08:21

and they're all animated now they just

08:22

make you feel feelings gorgeous and I

08:24

feel like if I could just have this in

08:26

my life everything would be even better

08:28

than it already is not that I'm missing

08:30

anything but there will be one or two

08:31

cool features where I'm like that I want

08:33

that and then I'll dump my entire life

08:35

out of one into the other one and then

08:38

several days later I'll be like why did

08:39

I do this this is missing the things

08:41

that I like about the other thing even

08:43

though I like that I have to move back

08:45

and now I'm like constantly doing this

08:47

dance between apps Adam actually has a

08:49

little bit of the same bug I'm not even

08:51

going to lie I'm outing you over there

08:52

but thanks we do a little bit of the

08:54

same dance so I I'm gonna interject

08:56

right there and I'm gonna say by the end

08:58

of this episode I need convincing on

09:01

something that will be my app and just

09:04

be my app because that sounds terrible

09:07

and I will never do that I am you have

09:11

to enjoy it literally for its own sake

09:15

uh and also the the one thing I I had an

09:17

old boss who watched me do this a

09:19

hundred times and he was like oh every

09:21

time you do it you're actually like

09:23

going through all of your old notes and

09:24

reevaluating all the stuff you're

09:26

working on I was like I don't know that

09:27

that's actually true but it made me feel

09:28

better

09:29

that this is my way of sort of taking

09:31

stock of my system and all that um it's

09:34

not no one should do what Marquez it is

09:37

not it's delightful and unhealthy and

09:39

unproductive I appreciate you guys have

09:41

all the viewpoints of all these

09:42

different apps but if I pick an app and

09:44

I use it by the end of this episode if

09:47

there becomes a time where I'm like I

09:48

don't want to use this that looks better

09:49

I will never make that switch it is too

09:52

annoying for me to do that the partially

09:55

one of the reasons I've never switched

09:56

to an iPhone with ample OPP opportunity

09:59

here is I've tried to set one up before

10:01

and in the setup process I just go I

10:03

don't feel like doing this and then I

10:05

never use it so because this makes me

10:07

think we need to put Andrew in an app

10:09

that is very stable and straightforward

10:12

and not likely to do you know what this

10:14

one is sort of explode and of course I

10:15

know what that I think that's one of the

10:17

high top cand right now I think I have I

10:19

have three in mind that and that's one

10:21

of them what are your can I see your

10:22

three real quick well so I'll just I'll

10:24

just intimidating on this side Yep this

10:27

is the podcast version of we can fix

10:32

him Claire put them up to

10:35

this yeah yeah yeah it's that's the I

10:39

have it's the top two that I feel pretty

10:40

good about and then the third one is

10:42

kind of my wild card yes just because of

10:44

who makes it okay but it's also

10:47

potentially the one that is the most

10:49

things I I know why and I think we

10:52

should try to explain it yeah but now I

10:54

know how audio listeners feel how

10:56

confusing this is no no do you want me

10:58

to kind of go over maybe like a day a

11:01

week a month of what I do and maybe like

11:03

that might help your guys thought

11:05

process on this I think this might work

11:06

the same way which is I have

11:07

increasingly complex hypotheticals okay

11:10

and you can tell me how you would tackle

11:11

them okay okay hypothetical number one

11:14

sure Claire says Andrew don't forget to

11:17

take out the trash on Friday morning

11:20

what do you do wait you just unlocked

11:21

something that's the only reoccurring

11:23

task in my calendar app is take out the

11:25

trash on Thursday okay that's a good

11:27

answer and it comes up on my watch every

11:29

time I'm sitting on the couch Thursday

11:31

night task in your calendar app or is it

11:32

a calendar event in your calendar app

11:34

that's a great question this is very

11:36

important huge okay let's see I I'm

11:40

guessing it's a calendar event you

11:42

probably have it the either the night

11:44

before when you need to put things out

11:46

or that morning if if memory serves your

11:49

your you have both right I have both I

11:52

have one as a task the night before and

11:53

then I have the calendar event the next

11:55

day okay of when it actually gets

11:57

collected which do you follow more often

11:58

I follow the task because the calendar

12:01

event is sying to a gcal provided by my

12:04

Town's website that is not always

12:06

accurate uh cuz the holiday weeks all

12:09

the weirdness it's supposed to be up to

12:10

date but I've just found it's I live on

12:11

a corner I think it might be the other

12:13

blog this podcast is going to be 16

12:14

hours this prepare everyone I'm here

12:17

trying to figure out if it's a task or

12:18

an event and Marquez is connecting to

12:21

his local government with this Marquez

12:23

hacked into the mayor's office to get

12:26

the schedule it is an event okay and it

12:28

is sorry can I see that one more time

12:30

you can it is the night before it is the

12:33

night before before perfect I'm I ain't

12:35

getting up in the morning to do that

12:37

totally fine so but that works for you

12:39

it works for me it works every yeah I

12:41

have not missed a trash T perfect okay

12:43

so so the Calendar app so part two

12:46

hypothetical Claire says now when you're

12:49

taking the trash out make sure that you

12:51

break down the cardboard and put it to

12:53

the left of the plastic or they won't

12:55

take it we only have one recycling bin

12:57

this is the hypothetical okay

12:59

I'm not good at hypotheticals apparent

13:01

so you need to remember both to do this

13:03

task at this time and something specific

13:06

to do in this task I'll give you the

13:08

perfect example which is something we

13:10

found as an old alarm app on my phone

13:12

the other day when we were talking about

13:13

this where I had an alarm that said

13:16

money on trash because for the holidays

13:18

I was tipping the trash people and I

13:20

needed to bring out the trash cans and

13:22

also put the like card for them so you

13:24

set an alarm to do that and I did it

13:27

actually a third party alarm app which

13:30

is

13:31

deranged hey hey interesting um I

13:36

actually say Andrew it said monkey on

13:39

trash so I so it took a so if there's

13:42

auto correct yeah that would be a huge

13:44

benefit of whatever we're doing um but

13:46

yeah so and that was something I did the

13:48

next morning because I didn't I didn't

13:51

want to leave money on the trash can

13:52

over so you set that alarm for the

13:54

morning that yeah so I would at my the

13:57

end of my driveway I would know to pull

13:58

it out of my car and put so in this

14:00

hypothetical if there was a specific

14:03

thing you had to do with the cardboard

14:05

to the left of the plastic you would set

14:08

maybe an alarm correct at the same time

14:11

that you're taking out the trash uh that

14:13

tells you what to do that says cardboard

14:15

left plastic yeah like it would

14:17

essentially be yeah at the same time

14:18

okay okay okay I already have so much

14:22

anxiety right so far it's checking out

14:24

coordinating the alarms it's I can't

14:27

wait for in a month you're like how's it

14:28

going and I'm like there's so much trash

14:30

in my house

14:33

piles right part three again pure

14:37

hypothetical but how would you tackle

14:40

this you now need to do this every

14:42

Monday and Thursday night during the

14:44

summer but every Sunday and Wednesday

14:47

night during the

14:49

winter if I'm being honest I would

14:52

probably just have two Calendar
