How do you say goodbye to a dog?

We knew Sparky would die soon because the vet wouldn’t operate on his cancer. His heart wasn’t good enough. He seemed so healthy so I told myself I’d get a second opinion. But he got unhealthy so fast. So I just thought I’d go back to the vet to see if he’s in pain. Then he bit the cancer spot and there was blood everywhere. Then I stayed up with h...

When I joined Insider Inc. in July, I onboarded completely remotely.  To this day, I still haven't met any of my work colleagues in person — but I have taken steps to get to know them an...

Weekly Summary of To Dos and Already Completed

I got a question yesterday from Cecilia, asking: “Is there a feature or method to create a weekly to-do. and ‘have done’ list?” There are two ways to see something like that. Hands down, my favorite is on the homepage, right when you login. What you see on the screen are called “widgets,” which are like “tiles.” Note that these widgets can be repositioned by dragging them. You should see a widget called Reminders, which will show you all of your action items you’ve set up, right on your homepage...
