1. Change file type

If you've an endpoint such as /users/passoword you might want to try /users/password.json or other extensions like .xml etc.
2. Convert ID to json body or array

If you've {"id":111} that gives you 401, you might want to try {"id":[111]} and {"id":{"id":111}}

The 2 minute rule.

A Thread.

The main idea behind the 2 minute rule is to slowly curb procrastination off the list of unhealthy habits.
There are different varieties and variations to this, but the main idea is to get started with what you can do under 2 minutes immediately without thinking.

#Bitcoin and the Store of Value.

A Thread

Store of value is a way of preserving wealth over time. This is extremely useful if you've a surplus from the essentials and would like to preserve it for the future.

Gold is considered to be the this store of value, but gold does have certain issues to be addressed.
The problems with Gold :

1. Wastage when conversion is very likely and we intend to lose some money in the process.

2. Gold is difficult to store and safeguard. Since gold is a physical entity and pretty much worn as an accessory, it is subject to theft often.

People intend to talk about success and not the failures or mistakes just to seem near perfect. But it's them mistakes that make us better.

Here's a list of mistakes that I did as a beginner programmer and you might want to avoid some of these.

1. Choosing to code at the very beginning without understanding and breaking down the problem to find a solution.

It's always been helpful to sketch the problem & solution with pen and paper before attempting to code directly.
2. Learning loop

I intend to know the indepth knowledge about a topic and jump from one resource to another. Working hand on rather than just watching tutorials has proven to be helpful.

"Learning how to learn"

A Thread

1. The two fundamental models.

Focused Model : This model is about learning related concepts together as a whole, in a chunk.

Diffuse Model : This model exercises on connecting general ideas across different areas. Example : We use this model unintentionally when daydreaming.
2. Repetitive learning, with a space.

Example : Learn a concept and review it after 8-10 hours later. Come back to the same concept the next day and recheck after 3-4 days, then a week.

Do this until as you're instinctively able to recollect what you've consumed.
