I do enjoy blogging in terms of streams, while keeping it discrete enough for convenient rereads.
- will be initializing a daily stream that I initialize every morning and end at the end of every day. - timestamps somehow increase my awareness of time and delegate the stress of time-management to the computer. - feels like a very simple productivity hack. - I borderline feel like Mark Watney from "Martian". - story-telling is an interesting art I'd like to improve in on the sidelines and logging has been an accelerator for the same in the past. - there is not much value in one entry, but, accumulate them over a large span of time and you have something interesting. - taking a break from intense physical workouts for a week and solidifying some core work rituals (for programming, studying, reading and writing) for the next year or so. - will still be walking with podcasts so my body will get some much needed rest. - I do need to decouple my workouts from the productivity aspect of my work; they definitely elevate my efficiency but sometimes, I just enjoy going all in with work and finishing off major projects. - Finishing of the books "Practical Common Lisp" and "Fluent Python" in the following week. - I keep my studies independent from my work and going forward, will be getting into "Let Over Lambda" and "Hacking: The art of exploitation". - My casual reading pursuits include finishing off Taleb's "Incerto" series in the coming weeks. - will be reviving my speed reading skills - quite a controversial topic in the reading community - will be writing about this in detail soon to lay out what it is down to the core. - it definitely gets a bad rep due to it being somewhat of a misnomer. - I hate misnomers: I used to redefine words on my old blog but this time, I'm thinking of sticking to the bounds of the language I'm using and not creating novel words. - will be efficient in the long term. - Reading and writing are activities that do not provide you a benefit in the short term but definitely pay off in the generic wisdom and awareness you gain over the longer term. - This is something the society doesn't acknowledge yet. - We technically can capture knowledge with success within technical textbooks but we haven't really dialed down on what can really encapsulates wisdom. - 0x2000 is coming soon and will mark a new phase of my life : I'm done with 8192 days and I'll be entering 0x3000 in my early thirties. - Writing with timestamps is like creating a time capsule. - It allows you to move on from the past without holding on to it. - You've neatly indexed your memories and incentives (which can easily be manipulated by circumstances in the future). - does delegate away the stress in defining who you are. - That sounds good to me. - still need to restructure the site a little... - need to backup all my past work and documents in a smarter way - already initialized system logs for maintaing progress as a descriptive function of time: for backtracks and identifying where things went wrong in the long run. - have reinitialized my rough observation journals and am building that curiosity again. - It does get you in trouble sometimes, but, well, life's boring anyway. - A little trouble sounds good to me.
