Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow. I'm a web designer and lover of animating all things on the web. I enjoy writing about my thoughts on web design, going hiking, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, making YouTube videos, taking pictures of our doggo, and hanging out with friends and family.

Sometimes I share things on Twitter

This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM onΒ Twitter if you'd like to connect.

@chrisd008 I once left my water bottle in a lyft in SF. They shipped it back to me, about half full. It's a 750ml bottle πŸ™ˆ I think I've been pacing around my house for 30 minutes now looking for it and just remembered that I took it outside earlier πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ Found it!!!

December 3, 2019

I am exceptionally good at misplacing my water bottle.

December 3, 2019

From 2011 to 2019, I have asked at least 5 people per day: "How are you doing?" Conservatively, I've done this 300 days per year, for 8 years. Each interaction took ~9 minutes on average, some 240+ minutes. Math: 300 x 5 x 8 = ~12,000 interactions = ~108k minutes = ~75 days

December 3, 2019

I've spent at least 75, 24 hour days of my life, inquiring how others are doing. That's a decent amount of time to do something for, ~1800 hours in fact. I've always loved to learn more about people and how to be a better friend, colleague, mentor, example. I've learned a lot.

December 3, 2019

From there, I've usually spent at minimum an hour thinking about each person I interact with. So, 12,000 interactions x 1hr= ~12,000 hours of thinking about others. Again, this is a conservative estimate, the real numbers are likely significantly higher than that.

December 3, 2019

Thinking about others and their well being has helped me to become more empathetic. This comes naturally for me, I do it for fun and because I care πŸ’œ. I know it may not be a natural thing to do. That's why I want to share how to do this practically, for anyone to do it.

December 3, 2019

If starting with 5 people a day is intimidating, start with one person. It takes about 5-30 seconds to find a contact in your phone, email, social media account. Then another 5-30 seconds to type out: "Hi (first name), I was just thinking about you, how are you doing?"

December 3, 2019

It might be the same 5 people every day as well for quite a while. That's okay! That's great! πŸ’œπŸ˜

December 3, 2019

Taking the time to talk to people, and seeking to understand how they're doing is a habit which has radically impacted my life for the better. I've become more understanding, cared more deeply, grown incredible friendships and seen humans do amazing things in their lives. πŸ’œ

December 3, 2019

I really hope that more people are encouraged to do this as well, as I can't tell you how grateful I am that I've done this. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for this daily habit.

December 3, 2019

I want to share what I've learned with the world, and am hopeful that we can keep learning together and from one another πŸ’œ. Please let me know if you have any questions 😁
