Happy Friday! I hope you’re doing well on this historic day of transition & change. I spent most of today helping entrepreneurs in Germany, India, & Amsterdam solve problems and make progress on their dreams. Given what was happening here in the US, it felt really good to reach across boundaries and deepen my global connections.
Our power lies in our ability to join together and do great work in the face of uncertainty. That’s my north star; it keeps me going, and keeps me connected to people who lift me up.
If you’ve read my post on Slack’s coherent & compelling journey to mastery, you may be wondering how to learn from Slack’s example and build game-like dynamics with long-term pull.

This is the first in our 2017 Game Thinking Teardown series featuring Slack, Duolingo, Kickstarter, Happify & more. I hope you’ll join us, and kickoff 2017 with killer design lessons about long-term engagement.
Here’s to a productive and inspired year!
