Sprints, Breaks & Async Work Done Well – John Zeratsky & Freedom Matters

John Zeratsky Freedom Matters Podcast

John Zeratsky discusses the power of ‘sprints’ and how to do asynchronous work well

What if we didn’t just treat work as a series of sprints, but our whole life? What if we applied the same process of reflection that we do at the end of our projects, to our whole life?

In this episode, we welcome John Zeratsky, a co-founder and general partner at Character, where he supports technology startups with capital and sprints.

He is the bestselling author of Sprint, Make Time, and a former design partner at GV. Previously, John was a design leader for YouTube, Google Ads, and FeedBurner, which was acquired by Google in 2007.

In this episode we discuss:

  • how the principles of ‘Sprint’ are applicable across life 
  • other steps to ‘Make Time’ 
  • his views on the future of work and of asynchronous work done well
