I hope you had a very Merry Christmas with your family. If you’re working this week I’m sure it feels like no one else is working and everyone seems to be on vacation. It may feel like you’re wasting time, with no ability to make any progress, right?
Wrong! The fact that work is a ghost town right now can totally be used to your advantage! The way I like to think about it is now is the time to
Order and your
That’s right! Get your house in order and your shit together. Now is the perfect time to plan for 2022, tie up any loose ends from 2021, set your goals, clear your desk, clean out your office, and get ready for your best year yet. In an effort to increase my accountability and share with you my goals for the coming year, I have outlined my objectives and key results (OKRs) for the year here! The time when no one else is around is a perfect time to look inward, do an assessment of how well you did in 2021 on your goals, and prepare your goals and objectives for the year to come.
Good luck navigating the GHOST town to set yourself up for success in 2022, and I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year to you and your family!
All the best,

Will 2022 be the year you finally put a (smart) ring on it?
With Oura and Movano set to duke it out for market share, we may soon have one smart ring to rule them all.By Rachel Kraus on December 28, 2021

Finger-worn wearables are so hot right now. Smart rings, the lovechild of jewelry and fitness trackers, are designed for anyone who longs to log health metrics without the bulk and annoyance of a notification-happy computer on their wrist.
But in contrast to the many screen-based options in the fitness tracker space, smart rings have been thin on the ground so far. Your main choice as of December 2021 was the pricey Oura ($300 for the second generation model, plus a $6 monthly subscription for ongoing health insights). Celebrities such as Jack Dorsey and Gwyneth Paltrow are among Oura’s devotees.
But as of January 2022, the smart ring universe is expanding. Health wearables company Molano just announced its first product, the Movano Ring, which will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. (Yes, Omicron notwithstanding, CES is still going ahead.)
The Movano tracks sleep and activity metrics, and is working to gain FDA clearance to monitor vital signs such as body temperature — something even the latest Oura can’t provide yet. Movano’s companion app is focused on combining these metrics to predict how you’ll be feeling on any given day. Tracking body temperature isn’t just good for figuring out when you have a fever. It could also be useful for anyone who is trying — or not trying — to get pregnant.
