1. Custom made icon libraries, someone smarter already made proper ones for real applications.

2. Upwork, freelancer, peopleperhour .. just walk away.

3. Fighting over a font choice, does it matter if it’s Cormorant or Baskerville?

4. Following celebrity drama and pop-culture and trying to add that in, no one cares really.

5. Meetings about things that can just be a few JIRA tickets.

6. Being serious all the time, a smile and a laugh will get you everywhere you want to go.

7. Stock photos. Put it down, you don’t know where it’s been.

8. Custom slack emoji’s, leave the parrot outside. so 2015.

..And that’s it, those are my 8 quick and dirty recommendations on what to leave and not spend any time on.
