The fastest surgeon I have ever known moved his hands slowly.

A two-time Olympic medalist rower coached me to slow down.

The most effective managers are often the ones who speak the least.

Let's learn what it means to say
"Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast." #ship30for30
When I was starting my surgical training in 1997, I already knew of the biggest tour-de-force for a general surgeon.

It's a Whipple procedure, an extensive and difficult surgery typically performed for cancer of the pancreas.

It’s a massive procedure which few surgeons perform.
The surgery is fraught with many areas where a mis-step can cause fatal bleeding.

For those that do this extensive surgery, it often takes 4 - 6 hours under ideal circumstances.

But one of our surgeons in my training program routinely performed this surgery in about 3 hours.

Can one podcast episode change your life?

On the 29th of August, 2022, I listened to Huberman Lab Podcast.

I haven't touched alcohol ever since.

10 lessons from @hubermanlab that made me quit alcohol after 18 years of regular drinking

@hubermanlab 1/ You're poisoning your body when you drink alcohol.

Your liver metabolizes alcohol into acetaldehyde. It is a poison to your brain and body. It kills cells.

Being drunk is a poison-induced disruption.
@hubermanlab 2/ Alcohol damages your brain

You have a well-protected blood-brain barrier.

But alcohol can easily pass through it and directly damage your brain.

It gets where most damaging substances can't.

These 7 quotes taught me more about learning than 20 years of education.


Credits: @jimkwik

1/ "All learning is state dependent."

Your mood is your learning amplifier.

Negative emotions destroy your learning abilities.

Bring a positive attitude! Think about the benefits of your learning. Get excited.

Try to create fun. Enjoy!
2/ "As your body moves, your brain grooves."

Be active!

β€’ jog
β€’ walk
β€’ swim
β€’ cycle
β€’ exercise
β€’ play team sports
β€’ pick your favorite activity

The movement puts your brain in active mode. So you'll learn faster!

I plan to add monetization to the next release of the habit-tracking App.

The evergreen question is what way to go, one-time purchase or monthly/yearly subscription?

Here is what I'm planning to do.

A one-time purchase is nice, in theory.

As a developer, you are getting all the money asap. As a customer, you pay once and use the app forever. The only problem is - it is not clear how long this "forever' will last.

Year or three, or a lifetime while the developer is alive.
Pricing for one-time purchases should be relatively high.
IMO, those should be 3+ years of App support and updates. That's quite a big responsibility to commit to working on the just-launched app for 3+ years.

So, the obvious choice for Habit App is a subscription model.

ChatCPT is fun, but did you try GitHub Copilot for iOS App development?
You can save a lot of time even if Xcode does not support it natively, but you can fix it. Here is how 🧡
Easy way - use VSCode with the Copilot plugin. I'm using VSCode when working on longer functions and business logic to have quick suggestions from Copilot. To compile projects or see previews, I just hit CMD+S in VSCode and switch back to Xcode.
It is possible to launch the iPhone simulator from VSCode, but I found switching back to Xcode comfortable and fast. Xcode feels handier to catch errors and debug code. If changes are made in Xcode, the VSCode editor updates them automatically.

I've written everyday for 327 days.

7 ways how writing everyday can change your life:
1/ Clarity of thinking

The more you write, the easier it gets to communicate your ideas.

When you start writing, you are:

β€’ Putting your thoughts on paper
β€’ Organizing it in a way that resonates with the reader
β€’ Capturing ideas so your brain is free to think of new ideas
The better you get at organizing those ideas, the easier it gets for you to simplify your ideas and thinking.

The simple act of putting pen to paper can improve your mental health drastically.

Writing is 98% editing.

But most people do it wrong.

Here are 7 editing tips that will make your writing stand-out:
1) Wait at least 12-24 hours before editing

Seinfeld treats his writing self and editing self as two different people.

You have different priorities while doing both.

β€’ While writing, your priority is to get words on paper
β€’ While editing, your priority is to remove fluff
Another reason to edit later is to kill the recency bias.

You're going to love everything the moment you write something.

(Even stuff that's BS)

I don't sign NDAs.

You shouldn't either.

🧡Here are 4 reasons why πŸ‘‡

Here comes a compelling partner.

The company looks solid. The founders are strong. Their existing product looks great.

But then come those 5 little words.

"Will you sign an NDA?"

At this stage, the answer is always "no".

Here's why:
1/ 🀫 You shouldn't be sharing confidential information this early. 🀫

It's just too early in our relationship for us to be sharing business secrets.

You don't open a first date with a non-disparagement agreement.

You chat about your interests and see if there's a match.

We all know them: that friend that's super successful.

Absolutely killing it. Constantly improving.

There's just one problem:

They're dumb as rocks.
"How do they do it?" we ask ourselves. "I'm so much smarter than them!"

But what if they're not successful despite their intelligence, but because of it?

Obsidian is full of cool features, but some of them are hidden🧐

Here are my 5 favorite tips to 10x your productivity!

Let's start with some visuals.

#ship30for30 @ship30for30
1/ Outliner (Community plugin)

Wish there was an outliner?

For those coming from outliners like Roam and Logseq, this may convince you to give Obsidian a try.

Go to Settings/ Community plugins/ Browse/ and search for "Outliner."
2/ Command Palette

Are you always forgetting how to do "that thing"?

Like "how do I Highlight text"? 🀣

Thankful, Obsidian does have a toolbar, it's just hidden.

Use Ctrl/Cmd P to bring up a list of all the things you can do to your notes.

It also shows the shortcut!

I've spent 7 days reading Niklas Luhmann Estate's docs on his Zettlekasten, (so you don't have to.) πŸ˜…

Here are 5 surprising truths I found.

All images are properties of
1. 90,000 notes sounds more impressive than it looks.

This is his Zettelkasten, the German word for "slip-box". All notes were organized into 24 drawers and 3 filing trays (top left).

Not impressed? I don't blame you.

But the concept behind it might change your mind...
2/ His Zettelkasten's main purpose was to generate surprise.

He focused on organizing and constructing his notes, so he can "talk" to it. Every part of this process has its purpose. His notes are meant to lead him down paths he wasn't thinking about.

This was done in 3 parts...

I have a love-hate relationship with podcasts.

I love the variety and the convenience.

I struggle with taking notes from them still. (I started experimenting with @snipd_app a few days ago 🀞)

Here are 7 of the podcasts I've been enjoying lately: πŸ§΅πŸ‘‡

@snipd_app 1. The Danny Miranda Podcast

This one is a very recent addition to my feed.

So far, I've been enjoying the variety of guests and the casual but deep conversations @heydannymiranda has with them.
@snipd_app @heydannymiranda 2. Hidden Brain

This has been a favourite of mine for years.

@HiddenBrain is very consistent with the quality of the episodes they produce.

It's always great to learn about the interesting and unexpected ways our brains work.

I'm often juggling multiple projects at a time.

It feels natural between work, friends, classes, hobbies, etc.

But sometimes, working on too many things at once can slow us down.

Here are 4 benefits to limiting your work-in-progress: πŸ§΅πŸ‘‡

#ship30for30 #tweet100
1. Improved focus

When you limit your work in progress, you can focus.

You can have increased access to flow.

You can allocate all your cognitive resources to one goal.

Plus, it just feels good to focus.

Having too many things on the go can leave us feeling scattered.
2. Less context switching

It produces waste each time you context switch.

You have to load a different project into your working memory...

...and then again once you switch back.

Every switch takes time and energy, which is a tax on your productivity.

Julia Cameron offers a daily practice called Morning Pages.

This practice is 3 pages of stream-of-consciousness journaling done first thing in the morning.

Here are 5 benefits you'll get from adopting this practice: πŸ§΅πŸ‘‡

#ship30for30 #tweet100
1. Increased awareness

It can be hard to focus when small things are tugging on your attention.

Sometimes, we aren't even aware of the things calling us.

Morning Pages can help bring those things into our awareness.

Once we're aware, we regain our power to react.
2. Processing of emotions

When we don't process our emotions, they tend to stick around and increase in intensity.

These emotions can drive us to do unhelpful things.

With Morning Pages, we can start to process those emotions.

We can sit with them and feel them through.

What about art?
Art is characterised by:

β€’ Creative expression
β€’ Varied mediums used
β€’ Unique value derived from aesthetic appreciation

Can any of these describe leadership?
