      Knowing that, over time, the new girlfriend will be a not-so-new-but-a-lot-more-wonderful girlfriend (if you are willing to work towards it), can help combine huge value creation with great satisfaction.

      Don't stay in bed. Wake up fast and start the day. Keep straight posture & spine.

      Always learn new things but be purposeful & focused. Learn fundamentals for clarity.

      Say no to things. Set constraints & limits.

      Use same profile photo & cover photo across all profiles. Don't change it.

      Living a conscious life does not just boil down to the food that you eat. It is also being more compassionate and understanding of your own actions and seeing how they affect your surroundings. Living a conscious life, means living a life being aware of your own ego. It means taking a step back and looking at things from a different perspective, one that is not yours. You can meditate or journal to help you achieve this clarity of perspective in your life.

      Humans can endure a good deal of sustained psychic pain, so most people typically stop growing where it is easier to endure pain than to grow to a condition where it is eliminated in favor of an interesting newer kind of pain, caused by an a novel kind of resistance. The equivalent of terminal velocity for humans is a painful equilibrium between the ego-growing forces of acceleration under the gravity of “free” work, and the attrition drag forces of rejected responsibility. Like a meteoroid, you might either burn up in the atmosphere, turning into a meteor, or make it to a crash-landing as a meteorite.

      The writing may or may not be fully formed inside the writer, but it is not made of words. Pulling it out, writing it out, is to face failure. To borrow one of Jean Paul Sartre’s phrases: ‘Existence precedes essence.‘ The story exists inside the writer, the essence—that is, the nature of the story—is fluid inside the writer, it exists like a dream. When pulled onto the page, it becomes the words and is transformed into something new—a merging of its original existence with its new essence. The resulting story can never be what was first imagined. It is absurd to believe it could, but if writers didn’t persist in believing this, they would quit (or admit to their being masochists). Instead, writers learn to work in graduations of failure.

      Readup is, proudly, a non-addictive technology. You’ll never find yourself using it against your will. If we’re successful, Readup might even help people to curb their technology addictions. Readup is also bridge back to print, to books. The day that I hear from Readers that they are getting addicted to Readup is the day that I jump ship. For real. I don’t want anything to do with building a product that “hooks users.” Reading on Readup should feel like eating vegetables or exercising. Not bingeing on candy or Netflix.

      mRNA vaccines offer a clever shortcut. We humans don’t need to intellectually work out how to make viruses; our bodies are already very, very good at incubating them. When the coronavirus infects us, it hijacks our cellular machinery, turning our cells into miniature factories that churn out infectious viruses. The mRNA vaccine makes this vulnerability into a strength. What if we can trick our own cells into making just one individually harmless, though very recognizable, viral protein? The coronavirus’s spike protein fits this description, and the instructions for making it can be encoded into genetic material called mRNA.

      The definition of work was now to make some original contribution to the world, and in the process not to starve. But after the habit of so many years my idea of work still included a large component of pain. Work still seemed to require discipline, because only hard problems yielded grand results, and hard problems couldn't literally be fun. Surely one had to force oneself to work on them.

      It's hard to find work you love; it must be, if so few do. So don't underestimate this task. And don't feel bad if you haven't succeeded yet. In fact, if you admit to yourself that you're discontented, you're a step ahead of most people, who are still in denial. If you're surrounded by colleagues who claim to enjoy work that you find contemptible, odds are they're lying to themselves. Not necessarily, but probably.

      The version of macOS that was released today, 11.0, also known as Big Sur, has new APIs that prevent Little Snitch from working the same way. The new APIs don’t permit Little Snitch to inspect or block any OS level processes. Additionally, the new rules in macOS 11 even hobble VPNs so that Apple apps will simply bypass them.

      The knowledge sector’s insistence that productivity is a personal issue seems to have created a so-called “tragedy of the commons” scenario, in which individuals making reasonable decisions for themselves insure a negative group outcome. An office worker’s life is dramatically easier, in the moment, if she can send messages that demand immediate responses from her colleagues, or disseminate requests and tasks to others in an ad-hoc manner. But the cumulative effect of such constant, unstructured communication is cognitively harmful: on the receiving end, the deluge of information and demands makes work unmanageable. There’s little that any one individual can do to fix the problem. A worker might send fewer e-mail requests to others, and become more structured about her work, but she’ll still receive requests from everyone else; meanwhile, if she decides to decrease the amount of time that she spends engaging with this harried digital din, she slows down other people’s work, creating frustration.

      But each jump begins the same way: stripping away complexity from your current process and going back to the basics of words each time. You can’t add volume to complexity. You can only add complexity to volume.

      The rise of community curated knowledge network

      But thus far, the conversation around “curation” has been too focused on the content – “what should I read?” – and not enough on the structure – “how do we collect, store, and contextualize the information we consume?” We seem to have forgotten that the goal is not to consume more information. The goal is to think better, so we can achieve our goals.

      Seinfeld: It’s very important to know what you don’t like. A big part of innovation is saying, “You know what I’m really sick of?” For me, that was talk shows where music plays, somebody walks out to a desk, shakes hands with the host, and sits down. “How are you?” “You look great.” I’m also sick of people who are really there to sell their show or product. “What am I really sick of?” is where innovation begins.
