What I learned about using Slack statuses when working remotely
The last few weeks, we've been experimenting with using a set of 4 emojis to denote our current status at work: Deep Work, Deep Break, Out of Office, In a meeting. When I notice I've been "Working" for a while, I pause and choose either a Deep Work or Deep Break direction instead. Deep Work. Deep Work is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work day. After experimenting with Slack Statuses as a tool for remote work, we ran into a few opportunities for improvement. Most likely, you're still in Deep Work but Slack doesn't re-affirm this. That's why we've chosen our Slack Status suggestions to be Deep Work, Deep Break, and Out of Office. Bytebase is a notes app that helps you clear your mind, prioritize, and do more Deep Work as you work from home.
