Status and hugs

Status reports come in different shapes and sizes.

  • A carefully formatted pdf.
  • A 30-minute conference call
  • Some powerpoint slides.
  • A text message.
  • A voicemail.
  • A carefully formatted email.
  • A one-line email.
  • A note on Trello.
  • A tweet.
  • A snapchat


They all do the same thing. They communicate status.

And no matter who it’s to, communicating status is as good as a hug.


Give more hugs. Give more status reports.

Just don’t do it too often or for too long. Nobody likes those kind of either.
