The only way we can all actively fight for our right for encryption and privacy is by starting to use and switch to services which respect our privacy and offer e2e encrypted services where the provider itself has no access to our data.
Switch your email to tutanota.com or Protonmail, Switch from WhatsApp to Telegram, Switch from G-Drive and Dropbox to Mega.nz, Switch from Microsoft Windows to MacOS or Linux.
Lovely read and an interesting practice. If you move from a standard pw to monthly chaning password it might even be safer. If you switch from a military grade super password to a password related to your "guessable" goals - well security might suffer.
Still a great story, who knows if I'll implement it soon ;-D
I don’t eat lunch so in this way I have the same lunch every day. It makes life less complicated. However I think variety and seasonality should be a goal to strive for - listen to your body and get what’s in season and fresh :)
If you are thinking about a podcast, well this is a good read. I thought about it but now it's clear to me that I have to FOCUS on what I actually do and want to achieve. Instead of a podcast I'll shift to a few irregular YouTube interviews. I'll join the podcast charts later, when I myself have a real exciting story to tell. Podcasting? Not now.
IMO this is too early to comment on. Kurzarbeit may prove as a „hidden unemployment“ and the author doesn’t show any understanding of the macro economic effects. I agree, Germany is in a good position but whether it’s the best or whether it’s simply the best position from all really bad positions will time tell.
I used to draw tally marks for each cold call I made (despite using a CRM) to have a visual cue. This "Paper Clip" idea sounds great and I'll implement it from tomorrow on as it forces you to finish a specific # of calls by the end of the work day and at the same time offers a visual habit cue.
I avoid reading news since a couple of years. The Economist is the only publication I read on a somehow regular basis. Nevertheless, I find myself more and more reading news due to Twitter and LinkedIn. This article is brilliantly showcasing why news are bad.
I think we're wasting too much time working unproductively and multitasking is a big problem of it. While I use the Pomodoro technique quite regularly, it still didn't become a real habit. During the next 4-weeks I'll try to work only in hyper-focus-mode with the Pomodoro timer in TickTick.
