Jumped into a great room just now on @joinClubhouse about 'Starting your second brain' speaker was Tiago from @fortelabs.. here are some key takeaways I observed #productivity #BuildingASecondBrain
Being able to sit down and consume a book (usually 5-10 hours of time investment) or even a long article is a HUGE competitive advantage in our current attention deficient society. Knowing how to capture what you consume will put you even further ahead.
Here's a few tools Tiago recommends.. Kindle highlights for books - Try to read on @AmazonKindle. A digital format will allow you to highlight things you find interesting.. you can then sync these with your note taking app (for me that's @NotionHQ) in two ways...

Email productivity thread

Gaining proficiency with MS Outlook has been really important in helping me accomplish as much as I have.

Now, I can usually process 200-300 emails in about 30 minutes. I’m asked frequently how I do it - I will try to explain in this thread.

It starts with being able to search efficiently and accurately. For many many years, I didn’t know how to do this. I would type a few words in the search bar and then scroll the myriad of hits till I found what I was looking for.

There is a better way.

First, go to options within the file menu and change your search setting to search all outlook items, not just the current folder. This will save you from having to tell outlook you do it with each individual search

Great time chatting with @TessaRDavis @VenkBellamkonda @marco_propersi @M_Lin on are some thoughts from me...

#MedEd #productivity

-Focus on Task Zero NOT Inbox Zero
-Email for me falls into 4 categories:
1 Actionable item (>5min to accomplish)->Task manager
2 Junk->Delete
3 Reference->Evernote
4 Quick action (<5min to accomplish)->Answer right then

Goal isn't zero emails but zero tasks in ur email
Time Management

-Schedule things into your calendar
-Review your calendar the night before for next day
-Review your calendar Sunday night for upcoming week
-Make sure you schedule downtime for yourself

If you have kids (or even if you don't) you have likely watched all these animated movies. Some deep lessons sprinkled in these are worthy of thought.

Do you have a favorite line or a favorite movie?

Some of my favourite quotes:
1. “When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the world." - Timon, from The Lion King
2. "When life gets you down, you know what you gotta do? Just keep swimming." — Dory, from Finding Nemo
3. “The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.” - Rafiki, from the Lion King

This post by @fortelabs is 100% why I never managed to really "get" Evernote as others in the #productivity space seemed to. Nested tag systems make my brain hurt too. Nomological networks on the other hand? 🙋‍♀️YES. 1/10…
If the concept of a "Nomological Net" is new to you, this is a decent primer:…. As it was explained to me by my 2nd doctoral advisor, & how I've put the use of this concept into practice in my life, can be summed up by this statement: 2/10
I capture what & how I'm thinking about the topics that interest me on everything in life my Nomological Net. I use @NotionHQ to do this. I know many would argue for the use of #RoamResearch since it builds a net. However, similar to nested tag structures, 3/10

#Covid lockdowns were an unusual gift. Watching my roses wilt, leathers crack, convictions shake, relationships dull and few loved ones taken away, I came to appreciate the essence of #chaos in a non-mathematical way. Art by Cindy Derby, from 'A Velocity of Being'
Riding the upstoppable arrow of #time, chaos can, and will take over everything – it's a question of when, not if. Spending 20+ hours for a whole year at home, I personally witnessed new order derive from, and decay back into chaos – yes, #entropy grows.
The silent master of #change, it lurks at the edge of all organisation, constantly tugging at equilibrium, ever ready to topple it into countless permutations of form, flavor and function. And through these, it shapes our shared, mortal destinies, at all #resolutions.

The Truth About #OpenOffices
”When the firms switched to open offices, face-to-face interactions fell by 70%.”

#HRM #WorkplaceDesign…
But ”hybrid #openoffice designs are not a panacea. If you are going to let people choose the spaces that best meet their individual needs, your workers might as well be remote.”
And #remotework hinders #communication: ”we found that remote workers communicated nearly 80% less about their assignments than colocated team members did; in 17% of projects they didn’t communicate at all.”

This is the type of nonsense we get with the blind adherence to the consumption-spending fallacy ("Keynesianism"): "remote workers are 'contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy whilst still receiving its benefits'." Producing at lower cost =
bad for the economy? 🤦‍♂️To these "analysts," people wasting less resources when producing (supposedly at the same level) need to be burdened with an extra tax to "make up for" (?) using less resources. Did anybody at @DeutscheBank think this through? If the problem is that they're
not spending enough to produce, i.e. that there is a higher output-input ratio (horror!), then they should, for the sake of consistency (and, from their POV, to stifle such economy-killing lower-cost production), also propose extra taxes for #innovation, #entrepreneurship, and

I was returning home from my office, I came across a Tadgola (ice-apple) vendor 🥥

I asked for the price and he said "100 rupees for a dozen"

"half a dozen please" I replied.

Thread 🧵👇

#Productivity #100DaysOfCode #DEVCommunity #CodeNewbies
He began to religiously peel the hard outer shell for the fruit. After peeling 3 hard shells, he was able to get half a dozen pieces for me.

I pulled out a 50 rupee note but he had picked another hard shell and began to peel it.

I asked him to wrap the half dozen and take the money so I could be off on my way.

He nonchalantly continued to peel another shell. It was humid and I was clenched in sweat. I was irritated and repeated to wrap it and take the money.
