Dogs Improve Productivity

Wade Foster, Zapier Co-founder: 

At first I thought it would be a little bit of extra work, but I quickly realized that having Tuna around was actually boosting my productivity rather than putting a dent in it.

This is an interesting, light-hearted read. Despite the subject matter being quite silly and the title phrased as though you’ve tuned in to the internet on April Fools’, it’s quite interesting how having something that needs to keep to a schedule can actually influence your own work rate and routine.

I particularly liked the note about a dog reminding you that it’s time to step outdoors. Too often on the internet are we able to sit for hours, working on the same thing for a hefty length of time. It’s easy to forget to take a break and breathe in that clean, cold, fresh air that you find outside.
