Biological Prime Time
A couple of weeks ago I started tracking my energy levels every hour during each day. This time I've been avoiding alcohol and coffeine as much as I can.
I was trying to find out my naturally occurring ebbs and flows in my energy levels. If I would be biologically tired and useless at 11:00 each day, then I would know I should . . .
Picking up ideas
I got comments!
I got some nice comments (on Google+) on the last post about dealing with negative people. Matias Pajulahti suggested I'd check out Nonviolent Communication and Mind-body bridging as tools to deal better with super-annoying assholes.
Precious, yet challenging, people, I mean.
I'll be reading a book by Stanley H. . . .
Lately, I've have been acutely aware of how the mood of other people affects me too. No-can-do attitude is something that is hard for me personally tolerate. I'd probably need a lifetime worth of meditation in a cloister, before I could honestly accept the sort of hysterics that negative people seem to be able to cook up about nearly . . .

Wrestling with Beeminder
Lately I've been fumbling with Beeminder way more than I would like to or would have expected. I have actually ended up paying them proper money, which is shocking.
I guess this is exactly how Beeminder is supposed to work. First it makes you pay and then scares you by the next, even higher . . .
There's been lots of talk about robustness and adaptability. For example Taleb's Black Swan and anti-fragile organizations or this text about how wasteful consuming could actually be a brilliant survival trick for the whole human race (h/t Kaj Sotala for this one again).
This all came back to me now that Timely has been down . . .
Pomodoris are horrible. I have tested these out for two days now and I can find no joy or advantage in working with pomodoro compared to working normally.
Using Pomodoro, you should carve out discrete chuncks of time that you spend single-mindendly on working on a single task. This way you can concentrate better . . .
Reading a Year of Productivity
Let's steal ideas
I was very excited about the Year of Productivity -blog, but I've never actually read it. I just bumped into it, read the about -section and maybe a random post and was instantly super-hyped and excited. Now after deciding to look a bit into productivity hacks also, I guess this would be an obvious place to start.
So now . . .
