Anger

I’ve been angry a lot lately. Over the last few weeks, it felt like it had consumed me.

It didn’t use to be this way. It was easy to slip into obsessive thoughts. Feelings of being wronged, how things are unfair.

Being hangry (hungry+angry) and stressed doesn’t help.


But anger is consuming. My personality anger doesn’t serve me well regularly. It can destroy all the good things.


Tips for overcoming anger that has helped me overcome.

The most important thing is to leave. Change your environment and focus. Don’t throw things.

Focus & Opportunities

I have to focus. So many cool potential paths. Have to focus, one thing first, one thing at a time.

An advice I got from some book I forgot:

“You can get everything you want, but not necessarily at the same time.”

So pace yourself.

2019

Happy New Year!
2019

I wanted to write something. Less Focus is more important now than ever. With the constant false values of everyday life. Media and material driven.

I’m reading (audible) great book right now called “Lost Connections” by Johann Hari. I found this via Blinkist.

The book is about depression, why we get depressed, and how to get happy again.

The fact that I’m reading a book about depression, goes to show you what the end of 2018 has been like. Really Q4 2018 (I think my mind works better in quarters.)

My TalkSpace counselor says that holidays are a stressful time for a lot people. Sage words.

This brings me back to Less Focus.

When There’s too much going on, when you feel overwhelmed, most likely you are spending too much time, energy, resources on the wrong things.

You need to do less. You need to focus on the things that matter. You need to focus on emptiness. You need that peace of impermanence.

My 2019 brings lots of joy to you and yours. It’s the start of your brand new life.

What’s going on?

I can’t believe it’s been more than 6 months since my last blog post. An apology to myself… but what have I been doing?

I’ve been working on OrgNote. My magnum opus.

I felt I couldn’t write, and sufficiently focus on OrgNote at the same time.

It’s all about focus after all…


Update on OrgNote

So where are we with OrgNote? I’ve been focusing on the soul, aka data structure of notes. All back-end… it actually doesn’t seem like I got a lot accomplished.

But I think I’m close… to the feeling of euphoria of inventing this something that hopefully scratches more than just my itch.


What’s the most important thing?

Do you have to give up your life, for your art?

What’s more important, your life’s work? Or your life?


I’m going to continue development of OrgNote, I think I owe everyone, including myself, that much.

The foundation is there, the whisper of maybe something, maybe.

From CrashPlan to BackBlaze

Since CrashPlan backup service doesn’t support home users anymore, I’ve just finished successfully switched to BackBlaze.

It took 25 days to backup around 800Gigs … so not too bad.

I had just left it running in the background, probably could have gone quicker if I optimized it by playing with settings.

Gladly my hard-drives didn’t die in the month, so now I can feel relief knowing my stuff (family photos/videos etc.) is in the Cloud!

If you don’t have a backup plan, you should totally get one, and I totally recommend BackBlaze.
