Why Digital Organization Matters

Hi friends, Benjamin Franklin once said: For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” This applies not only to life but also to work, and more specifically to digital workspaces. It sounds simplistic, but as with most things, it’s easier said than done. A lot of my content revolves around productivity and the importance of organizing knowledge. A huge part of tool-belt when it comes to organizing my environment is Tmux. There are lots of reasons for why Tmux is my choice, even...

Hi friends, Here's a quote from Deep Work which I'm 30% through the second reading round: Focus intensifies by getting used to NOT being distracted. And can improve with practice.” - “Deep Work”, Cal Newport An MIT recent study shows that when the brain forms memories or learns a new task, it encodes the new information by adjusting connections between neurons. They also remind of the principle of “neurons that fire together, wire together”, proposed by Donald Hebb in the 1940s. This is...

Hi! Let’s say you’re an entrepreneur, you know what, a “solopreneur”. You have you own side gig and it’s making a few hundred bucks a month. If I told you you can lost the entire thing in a heartbeat because you missed something, you’d be anxious to know what it, right?​Rewind 34 months, I was sitting at my desk, assisting the frontend team in troubleshooting their configuration issue. As I opened the devtools pane and launched the network tab, my goal was to locate "config.json". However,...

Happy Friday! Today I want to talk about something that pretty much transformed the way I work. Stenography is a shorthand writing method allowing users to transcribe text at speeds exceeding 200 words per minute, using abbreviated symbols for real-time speech transcription. It is mandated in all courtes of law as a method for recording the protocols simply because of the speed in which they’re processes and the reduced number of mistakes that can be made. While I’m not a Stenographer, and I...

Extreme Persistency and Accessibility The Problem(s) Over the years, I had difficulties with keeping my work locally, for many reasons: I didn’t always commit and push, sometimes I either forgot or it just didn’t make sense. When I left my computer at work, again either forgetting or just not needing it at home (at least I thought so), I was practically useless. Sometimes I found myself wanting to fix something or trigger a process on the go, and sometimes I had a eureka moment I wanted to...

Hey there! So, I was reading “Building a Second Brain,” and it had this quote that really got me thinking: Forcing yourself to make decisions every time you capture something adds friction to the process. This makes the experience mentally taxing and thus less likely to happen in the first place.” Imagine if every time you wanted to remember something, you had to climb a huge mountain first. You’d probably just forget about it, right? If you're not new here, you've probably read this quote on...

Hi! Autonomation is a concept coined at Toyota production. The Japanese word is Jidoka. The idea is, that automation is implemented to break when abnormality is observed. The implementation discussed supervisory functions that monitor any such behaviors. When one do arise, it needs to be handled manually, the condition requires improvement before it restarts. Without diving too deep into the concept, this made me rethink every automation I have today as part of work / side projects. Can my...

Hi! I'm reading How to Build a Second Brain for the second time now, and one concept, that I also saw on another book ("7 Habits of Highly Effective People") and many other places, struck a chord with me. It goes like this: Forcing yourself to make decisions every time you capture something adds friction to the process. This makes the experience mentally taxing and thus less likely to happen in the first place." Tiago Forte The word "capture" is in bold as this quote addresses the way we...

Hi! This week I'd like to address one of the best concepts I've encountered and it has everything and nothing to do with tech at the same time... The Cult of Done" is a manifesto, a set of principles if you like, that teaches you, well, how to get things done, but mentally. The idea is simple; don't over think, don't over-edit, just do. Finish and release. When the product is out there, just let it be, and move on to the next one. You can think of anything you create like a piece of art;...
