Jason Mullings is Just Rolling with It Through Apps like Asana

asana-news-recap-092616-6My name is Jason, a thirty year old in search of a better self. I’ve spent the past ten years in a sort of carousel going around and around with a loose idea in mind of what I want to be but with no plan or timetable to become what i didn’t even bother to define.

Over time, while slanging coffee at my latest dead end job I began to develop a friendship with Chris, the creator of Just Rolling with It. It immediately stood out to me how he managed to become and do whatever it was he was he wanted to do. It was Chris who literally reached out to help me get started Just Rolling with It.

How the BYOD Trend and Platforms like Asana is Changing the Way Companies Run Meetings

asana-news-recap-092616-7In recent years, the proliferation of BYOD — or “bring your own device” — has emerged as a major trend in the work landscape. Be it laptops, smartphones or tablets, many employees are now able to collaborate from the comfort of their own devices.

With this influx of devices and variety of ways to instantly communicate from anywhere, meetings will inherently become shorter. There will be no need for meetings to last hours because most topics will be discussed with a short message in Slack, commented on in Quip or Google Docs, or assigned as a project or task in Asana or Trello — as mentioned above, collaboration and productivity platforms will eliminate unnecessary information.

Therefore, meetings should ideally become much more concise (even those covering important information) because only information that is absolutely necessary to discuss will be addressed.

asana-news-recap-092616-9Just like business planning, project management is a long and intricate process with an infinite number of little tasks, but it has a nasty habit of not coming through exactly as imagined.
