Ever since I started working later in the day I stopped using alarm clocks. Now I am considering starting to use it again to have a better morning routine and perhaps even a better evening routine too. When you don’t have an exact time to wake up in the morning you end up getting out of bed at different times each day. You have a lack of routine so you end up not doing anything productive in the first moments of the day.
Early this week I’ve talked about centralized and decentralized social networks. Today I want to talk about the different types of content consumption. I think anything from read a book to watch tv is content consumption. But I think you can consume entertainment or educational content or a mix of the two, edutainment. When you have a short form of content like the Instagram reels or the Youtube shorts, you can’t really learn anything, but when you watch a course on Youtube or any other platform you are then consumig content that will enrich you.
Do something small everyday with consistency and when you look on the long run we will have accomplished a lot. A few examples are: read ten pages of a book everyday and in a year will be over 3000 pages or a video course with 30 hours so you study one hour a day and the course will be finished in a month, or even clean a room of your house per day and in a week your home will be cleaned.
I’m going to talk about the social networks the centralized form and the decentralized one. Decentralization itself is a extensive topic so what I will talk about here is the federation aspect of a decentralized network. Think email. I’m giving Instagram a break. I’ve stopped posting there many years ago but I’ve been consuming content there for a while and at some points, it was to an amount that I ended up finding unhealth.
It’s the start of the winter here in the south hemesphere and the only thing that I can think is: When it will be over. I am not a big fan of winters. I prefer the autumn (fall) or spring since both have a mild temperatures. In theory today was the shortest day with sunlight of the year. The solstice is when the sun is either in the northerly or the southerly in it’s relative to earth.
We live in the rural area and near our house many years ago eucalyptus trees were planted. This ended up been a mistake and last week we had to ask someone to come around and cut those trees. The trees were gigantic at least 20 meters tall. There is something about a tree so tall like that when they coming down, it shakes you inside. The tree is there one day and the other day is gone.
