We are trying Warby Parker

Marta needs reading glasses and we are testing Warby Parker. I read about them years ago, but since everyone in the family who needed glasses were set, I couldn’t find an excuse to try them. Now I have one :)

Warby Parker is a new way of getting prescription glasses. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere with a Warby Parker retailer, you can touch the glasses and try them on and then order online a get them two days later (two days!!!). If not, you have the option of Home try-on. You pay for the glasses, up to five pairs, you try them at home and ship back the ones you don’t like/ fit. And like with Toms, with every pair you buy, someone in need gets a free prescription glasses.

What it is not to like?

Fun at work

I keep reading that I have to have fun at work, that this is the only way my creative juices will flow and I will ultimately be happy at work and beyond. So the chore starts now: how to make work fun? Chase the project you think it will fulfill you (by having fun and joy)? Rewrite your title? Create your own project? Look for another position, in my current or another employer?

I am thinking out loud here. It helps put things in perspective.
