More posts and quick thoughts

Thinking about adding more categories. Not sure how it will all fit in the header, which is another thing I need to think about before doing this. Here are the 3 I’m thinking are:

  1. Tech
  2. Habits
  3. Challenges

Here are my thoughts on each:

  1.  Tech – Because I still have random stuff that I work on and posting about it online seems like a good idea to help others. This could be code, software stuff, os stuff (linux/windows/mac.) I had a lot of traffic from stuff like that in the past, so clearly I was helping others with it.
  2.  Habits – this one and the next could really be one category. I was thinking about posting of new habits I want to instill and my progress as I go along. You can see why challenges would be similar to this.
  3.  Challenges – Similar to habits, I want to post all the challenges I’m working on and it would be cool to look back on all of them all, as they progress or when completed. But many of my new habits are challenges in and of it selves.

Thinking this through a little, will decide soon. I would like to post more about bitcoin and crypto currencies as well but in time.

Also more content coming soon. I have a plan and ideas to post on, so there should be quite a bit of regular content coming online. Something I’ve been working hard on making happen.

Free Will

Free Will by Sam Harris

Paperbook | Kindle | Audiobook

Overview

Mind provoking would be the simplest way to describe this book. It makes you really question to what level free will is a thing. How much of your life is truly your decision or a decision based on all your previous experiences and choices? This book is all about the illusion or reality of free will.

Bottom line

Read it!!! Wonderful book and it will make you think. It will place you in uncomfortable scenarios but you’ll come out of it thinking different then when you went in.

Managing Oneself

Managing Oneself by Peter F. Drucker

Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook

Overview

It dives into managing oneself and your time. Your ethics and values. Who do you see when you look in the mirror every morning and is that the person you want to see? In today’s society it seems we are all expected to succeed. Nothing but upward mobility. At one point it was really nothing but downward mobility.  I think the author’s point to this was that we must do what is important to us, what doesn’t make us bored, and what fulfills us. Regardless of the money or success associated with it.

Bottom line

Very short book, well worth the read. About 60 pages. I think this was a good book to read after the “A short guide to a happy life” because it links together, the logic of doing what fulfills you and makes you happy, because we only have one life. Of which is such a precious gift and we must do what we want in life that makes us happy. This includes the work side of it which this book dabbles more into.
