No picture today, just my thoughts in words.
It’s a Monday morning, it’s drizzling with rain here in Basingstoke and I’m thinking about how to structure my day.
I’ve always like making lists and, being a technologist, I’m always exploring new and interesting apps that I can use to help me remember what I want to do.
The trouble I have is I have so many.
I duplicate, sometimes triplicate, entries to see how things work … and then end up not actually doing the task because I’m more absorbed in the process of recording it than actually doing it.
A good habit I have refined over the years is to review and improve on what I post.
I chose not to do links to Microsoft or NCIS Los Angeles as my tongue in cheek humour might offend them and I just don’t want to publicly argue with anyone.
All of this takes time.
So this week I am researching different methods for keeping on top of content creation with the minimum effort.
This is because I am inherently lazy.
Us programmers are always looking for short cuts and hacks to enable us to do things quicker so we can do something else instead. I’m just being human.
I use this tag in my writing a lot.
I also use the phrase in my conversations as well, although it’s quite often misunderstood as an excuse rather than an observation:
“You made a mistake! That’s wrong!”
“I know, sorry, I’m just being human.”
“That’s no excuse!”
“Yes I know, it’s just an observation, I’m not a machine…”
How human do you plan to be this week?
Are you refining your life like me?
If not why not?
Are you reading anything inspirational?
