Hey Petal! I've been thinking it'd be funny to make LinkedIn horoscopes (i.e. to post on LinkedIn) made entirely of quotes I've written down in meetings. But I don't really know the signs so I'm looking for help! I know this isn't how horoscopes work but I guess I'm thinking more "who'd say this" than "whose near future is described by this." Page is 🔓so you can write signs next to lines, or just comment or w/e, if you feel like it. Thanks!!!
How are we distinguishing on the viewing side between how we’re viewing results?
We’re saying the same thing in different ways. (gemini)
If we had better conventions, we wouldn’t have to use aliases. (virgo)
increase the footprint of functionality (capricorn)
there continues to be a steady flow of new ideas coming over the transom
their largest pain point is it takes them too long (taurus)
Because at the end of the day this is going to be an enabler
What's been your practice?
It feels like we’re falling back into previous conversations. So what’s the focus of this conversation today? (aquarius)
what we know is we value several things (taurus, libra)
we have to point to something physical in the document (virgo)
they've done really well at penetrating a number of customers
It's in the database, so that will be trivial (gemini, aquarius)
It sounds like this is an opportunity to leverage technology to streamline (virgo)
My prior on this is
We need to come to a decision one way or another if we believe we need two different things. (libra)
I think it’s a little bit different. (aquarius)
happier middle ground (libra)
I’d want to see all the metadata (aquarius, virgo)
I think that’s a very good point that you’re making. I remember reading that on Jira too. (leo)
So I’m comfortable with us pursuing this middle-ground (libra)
Is it correct to say (gemini, sagittarius)
sign off on
even under the ideal still has several different steps
All things equal (libra)
I like the best of both worlds (libra, pisces)
it’s very hard, and usually quite domain specific. (virgo)
One comment I would make about this mock that you have here is that the real estate usage here is not ideal. (virgo)
And I would minimize that.
Shouldn't be a big lift
Would it help to just force the issue (aries, scorpio)
Correct, that’s my understanding. (virgo, gemini)
I was really excited by the meeting yesterday. We’ll see when they get back to us. But very exciting. (sagittarius)
Workflow-wise there’s a lot of really cutesy stuff that ends up being really habit-forming that could ultimately be done with this stuff…
That further resonated as well.
So he's supposed to sketch something out then circle back with them for next steps.
We were pretty much all on the same page right from the start of the meeting. (aries)
Which I think is cool. (aquarius)
then it gets even more exciting (sagittarius)
lots to come, but we're really excited that the product can have uses (aries, capricorn)
we're just at stage one (aries)
any questions on that? (sagittarius)
making the case at the top of the house (capricorn)
very key, but very difficult and ambitious to pull off (sagittarius, virgo)
deliver some value fast (libra)
which turns out to be important for reasons i'll talk about later (capricorn)
all of it should be data-driven (gemini, virgo)
We want to front-burner that result about services as well (virgo)
Where are we now? It feels like we're at either Monday or Friday but we're not, are we. (pisces)
And then that'll give us an opportunity to talk through all these different concepts and make sure we're on the same page about them. (libra)
Carve out an hour to go though all those different things. (virgo, capricorn)
Once we're all on the same page on that, we can divide and conquer in terms of the different threads.
Does Monday work for you? (aries)
It should. Mostly open. Anything before 1 is flexible. (pisces)
Obviously the path of least resistance is optimal. But being able to deliver is the most important. (leo, sagittarius)
I hope you trust that the call that had to be made was thought through. (virgo)
I don't know if I'm allowed to tell you this, but I'm going to tell you anyway. (gemini)
I'm very hesitant to say (scorpio)
It seemed as if he was starting to take that for granted
Neither surprising nor particularly worrying
We don't have a mock of that
and just allow you with a couple of strokes
Whatever reporting capabilities you want, we can build (capricorn)
I'm completely onboard with what you're saying.
Keep it simple and separate. (cancer)
That's a well-established capability.
Are you connected? Just make sure you're... this one? (gemini)
I don't know what the hell is happening here. (pisces)
Here, let me try. (aries, leo, sagittarius)
Let me grab one of the dongles. (scorpio)
We're institutionalizing some capabilities here. (capricorn)
None of this is hard-coded. (pisces, sagittarius)
This is not a demo.
Will the historical information be available?
Effectively, there's two environments. (gemini)
Give me all the shit I care about. (taurus)
I don't think you want to overcomplicate this. (aries)
I don't know about you, but I like to be efficient. (virgo)
To be perfectly honest, I look at this and I feel fairly overwhelmed by the number of numbers. (pisces)
Plenty of low-hanging fruit to go get.
Switching gears a little bit (sagittarius)
Lots to do there, really exciting stuff (sagittarius, aries)
deepen the ideation exploration
where I need your help is—
might be helpful for everyone (libra)
If I can summarize my understanding, we can break this whole exercise into three large distinct blocks.
I have a bit of a different mental model.
That is a logical version of what you're talking about.
start giving people a bit more transparency (capricorn)
getting people onboard and excited (sagittarius)
that's the dream, anyway... and sometimes it works out! (pisces)
