About the author (2022)

Rick Pastoor has always liked experimenting at work. He'll try things out, then keep what works, ditch what doesn't. Try. Rinse. Repeat. In his time at Blendle, the New York Times-backed journalism startup, Rick steadily refined his methods. That's where GRIP was born, a flexible collection of tools and insights that helped the team do their best work.

Originally self-published in Dutch in 2019, GRIP became an overnight bestseller in Holland. Rick's mission today is the same: helping people make smarter decisions about their time. He divides his own time between his young family in Amsterdam, giving talks on GRIP, his weekly newsletter 'Work in Progress', and a new startup, where he's building a next-generation calendar called Rise.
