Herman Miller chair. I splurged on it recently and it’s worth it. Think about how much time we sit on our desks and the strain it puts on our bodies. Do it.

Free option but it’s a game changer - make your big screen your main, center monitor and put your laptop to the side. So much easier on your eyes. Regular keyboard and mouse are much better than laptop as well.

The mosaic background that people see when I’m on zoom calls. It gets commented on all the time and has ended up being a conversation starter with clients.

Fears of the new SBGE257 being too thick wholly unfounded. Two most surprising things about it on the wrist: 1) how ergonomic the case is 2) the subtlety of the sunburst green dial.
