End in itself
Self improvement or tool use?
I started to think how my last post was not so much about personal growth, but more about gaining instrumental value by using the tools I've learned to use so far. Should that side be side of Hacked Man at all, or should this blog be just about thinking up and testing new tools and for end in itself self improvement?
I ended up . . .
Picking up some slack
New beeminder goals
I've had less Beeminder goals for a while, and it's been sort of relaxing. But now that work and everything is in full gear again, extra curricular stuff obviously needs to be written down, or it just won't happen. I've been thinking about couple of things I want to do for at least a month, but so far haven't managed to do . . .
Huh, ok, whoa.
I've been doing meditation in a very regular manner for couple of months now and it has seemed nice and relaxing and all. There haven't been any that impressive or powerful experiences yet. Just sort of relaxing bits of time in between all the other stuff.

Use all the apps!
I won't be going through any services in more detail here, but just . . .
Time management tools
Time to test these
I promised to try out a time management tool. As always, I start by googling. As usual, lifehacking sites offer a plethora of Top 10 X app -lists, but first I'll need to know what I'm actually searching for.
I want a light-weight app that I will actually have to use to program my days. Trello could be used . . .
Cheeses of Stress Resistance
SCMS in action
I promised to do a proper list of my stress resistant cheese slices, so here goes.
