About the administrator

My name is Shun Sakurai. Shun is pronounced as /ʃun/, not /ʃʌn/.
I’m an English-Japanese translator in the IT field. I enjoy experiencing many cutting-edge services and introducing it into Japanese market. Personally I’m learning programming and creating tools for work.
I’m interested in organizing things and tasks, thinking about study methods, work efficiency, from childhood. I’m kind of a guy who stands in front of a standing desk and write this website.
I also love sharing what’s useful and well-thought. Recently I enjoy watching YouTube channel of mentalist DaiGo, and learn the importance of habituation instead of relying on will power. Morning Sidekick Journal was useful too.

I started using Asana in the spring of 2014 and I love it ever since. I use it to capture all tasks and information from personal life to work life, to avoid using brain capacity to remember something.
I was fascinated by its flexibility, ability to break tasks to subtasks and add them to multiple projects at the same time, and by its intuitive UI design. The auto-saving feature was rare at that time. Isn’t it great that the handover document is already created when you finish working with it? The list of my favorite features would go on like forever.

I was impressed by the philosophy and vision of Asana and I have read almost all Asana and Wavelength blog posts since 2015. I also love watching speech videos by Justin Rosenstein, which motivated me to open this website.
