Knowing when NOT to share something online

It’s really easy to share stuff online (that’s the point of social media, isn’t it?). At the same time, just because we can share something online, doesn’t mean we should share it. With all this talk about the term “fake news” that a certain president made popular, there is plenty of material that is misleading, […]

Today’s alternative to my usual run

I finally took some time to get outside, and exercise for the first time in about a week. I was going to do my usual run (it’s effective but I don’t particularly like it) when my daughter asked me to take her to the park. I was about to say “No”, and that I wouldn’t […]

Going to bed early … in theory

My wife: I’m going to bed early, I’m exhausted. Me: Good idea! I’m just going to have my tea (decaf), watch some quick, random video on YouTube, then I’ll also head to bed early. … I finally get to bed about an hour later, after watching about half a dozen videos about having ADHD.

I’ve been thinking about abridgments lately because of an ad that keeps popping up on Facebook. It’s for a service called Blinkist. The service claims it allows you to “fit reading into your life.” It […]

A vague Notion of a more productive system

I spent a little time in my Pocket recommendations, and found this great post by Marie Poulin titled “One Tool To Rule Them All” and her, and her partner’s search for a more effective, more complete productivity solution. Along the way, she considered Bullet Journals. I wanted to get on the bullet journal bandwagon, but […]
