- Until you cover the basics, all the optimization talk (or the nuance talk, or the “best way to...” talk) is forbidden… Attia's Rule
- An insight struck me this week: I'm sailing smoothly in most areas of my life, yet I find myself clinging to a survival mindset. It's a reminder of a gem I picked up from 'Be Useful' – 'Your mindset determines your reality.' It's amazing how true that is!
During the week
- Meute - Loss of Hope
- The other day, my daughter and I were chatting, and she hit a bit of a snag with a sentence in her book. It just wasn't making sense to her. So, we brainstormed this fun idea: What if every sentence was like a person you could talk to? Imagine some sentences being grumpy and short-tempered, while others are friendly and giving. Instead of guessing what they mean, we thought about asking them questions, sort of having a little chat with them. This way, their true meanings might just come out in the conversation!
- Check out this fantastic compilation of insights from 20 years in the software engineering field. It's impressive how skilled and dedicated professionals can distill their rich experiences into a list that's so accessible and easy to digest. Maybe I should start collecting all these people and their lists in one place?
My week was beautifully lit up by a burst of inspiration from a chat with my daughter. It's about turning everything into a conversation – with sentences, with problems, with ideas, and even with thoughts. I'm excited to capture and document these moments, making sure I'm fully mindful and present in every experience.
Discipline is the strongest form of self-love.
