What if our universe is entirely deterministic? That the future is already determined for us, and we lack free will. What does this mean for you? What does it mean for me? Does it matter what we do with our lives or not?
Lately, I’ve been on the lookout for yet another todo list system or a way to improve my existing. Today I think I’ve found one that works for me, a gamified version of my todo wall system using Lego.
Yesterday marked the end of the four-week “It’s totally possible that …” daily practice. A practice that was very challenging at least to come up with 100 possibilities that could happen almost every single day. In this blog post I will go through my results and what I learned from doing the practice daily, what I liked and what I would avoid if I were to do this exercise again.
I’ve often been blind to love in the sense that I don’t notice when someone is attracted to me. I’ve sort of always known this deep down, but I never grasped how blind I was and why until just a few weeks ago. Here are my experiences, patterns, and what I’ve learned about myself in the past weeks. Maybe they might help you identify if you’re blind, either in love or in other areas of life.
One and a half years, that’s how long it has taken me to write another article. It’s been a bumpy period in my life, with lots of ups and downs (but mostly downs). This article is a short summary of what my thoughts have been circling around the last years during the breakdown.
Do you find yourself lacking the motivation or energy to work on a project? You get motivated for half a second, then all the energy and joy just disappears from you. As if you light a candle, and just as the candle has been lit someone pours water on it. Making it difficult to reignite the candle again.
How many hours do you spend on tedious and repetitive tasks? Most, if not all of them, could be automated to make room for more fun and meaningful activities in your life. In this article, you’ll find some examples, as well as some tutorials on how to automate your life to help make automation easier for you 🙂
How does a fun, fulfilled, and satisfied life look to you? Do you have a hard time finding the answer, just like me? This 3-step process has helped me figure out what I value in life and guide me in the right direction, even though I don’t know the end goal. I used this process to evaluate 2017, and I will undoubtedly use it again to evaluate 2018, maybe tweaking the method to match my personality. You don’t have to stick to a yearly schedule though, a quarterly or half-year schedule will work just as well. The steps Rate and […]
If you were to review the last year, how has it been? What went well? Did the year go as expected? Was it better than expected, or worse? What can you learn for the next year? These are the questions I will answer in the following review of 2018 🙂
Date: 2017-11-30 In this journal entry, I want to design an exciting life and a way of living I would follow if I didn’t give a fuck what society and other people thought about me. More or less, to just do whatever it is that I want to do and live an exciting life (according to my standards). This, however, doesn’t equate to playing games all days and being lazy.
