Blind spots

2 years ago, for day 16 by Fred Rivett ⚡

Blind spots. Everyone has them. The sucker punch is that we rarely realise we have them. We don't know what we don't know. Recently I've been doing a course with Martin Stellar, Calibrating Reality. The course basically takes you through the building blocks of the human mind and decision making...


Not buying something

2 years ago, for day 16 by Jakob 💘

For a long time I had a portable single cable USB-C monitor on my online shopping wishlist. It has been there since I last worked from a co-working space and wished I had an extra monitor but was not regularly enough there to rent a fixed desk and plant a...


Day 15

2 years ago, for day 15 by Idean Vasef 💘

I'm running on empty right now and I have nothing specific that I really want to write about. Instead, I'll use this space to fill the remaining 273 words left. It's been raining heavily for three days straight here in LA. I love the rain but this is just getting...

Managers

2 years ago, for day 15 by Max ✨

In my limited work experience, I've had a lot (but not all types) of managers. It's interesting how other people handle the role of handling others. I had a really fun experience at my first gig. The work was really interesting and unique, working on cutting edge computer science stuff,...


Streaks and habits

2 years ago, for day 15 by Ben Ellis 💘

I stopped writing. I went on a date last week. I mentally prepared myself for it to last a couple hours, maybe three. Before we knew it, a date that started at 6pm went on for 5 hours. The date went alright, but all I could think of towards the...
