Thank you for having this discussion.

I've worked in 'Work From Home' businesses, 'Remote Friendly' business and 'Multiple Timezone' businesses, and a lot of the pain points you all bought up here are ones that I have either experienced myself, or clearly seen in people around me.

Mac, my commute is really important to me too. I've avoided driving a commute where at all possible and have always either cycled or taken the train or a combination of both. That time really anchors me. It clearly separates work from home, and without it I feel really lost. I've mentioned this in the past to a few people who I don't think understood the appeal of 40 minutes alone on a train and 20 minutes on a bike in winter, but to hear it coming from someone independent of myself is really validating. I was really curious about the time tracking tool you use as well. What was it? If it's listed in one of the ones above please forgive me but I couldn't spot it.

I've used PomoDone in the past when we were a trello based business, but we moved over to Notion a while back as well, pretty heavily. The one thing I miss from that transition was the one thing that only I used, which was PomoDone. I've had a few interactions with the Notion team, and am really interested to see how they support the API they are potentially making/going to make.

Hello Dave! sorry I just noticed this comment.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that love commuting for the alone time. I use Rescuetime for time-tracking.
