Re: AE's Journal Round 4

AE: There is at least one forum member here who has a PhD in Bioinformatics. Do you want me to set you up so you can have a talk about 'the realities' of bioinformatics? I've personally found that what looks neat about a job, is basically only 10% of that job's responsibilities. Carpentry? 90% drywa...

Re: Journals that go from high spending to 1 - 2 Jacob level spending

Being a systems thinking newby, I'll admit, the problem with this type of thinking is that it becomes so overwhelming that it's very easy to lose oneself in thought vs taking actual action... The world is choc-a-bloc full of randomness, and randomness will mess with almost any model. Teaching Syste...

Re: 3 yrs to FI: ertyu's journal

Not really a single source. No. My best recommendation would be: Atomic Habits, Systemic Coaching, Work The System, The One Thing, Thinking in Systems, ERE, The Life Changing Magic Of Tidying, A Guide To The Good Life, and a smattering of personality tests. You need to understand (not know) yourself...

Re: 3 yrs to FI: ertyu's journal

Incidentally I am working on SMART goals and systems design. A goal is not the target, a goal is used in order to build the SYSTEM that will get you there. Your goals determine your system's design, because your systems determine your behavior. When the system is set up properly, you will reach your...

Re: Journals that go from high spending to 1 - 2 Jacob level spending

You shouldn't be in the process of lowering your expenses. You should be in the process of finding out what your life is about, and designing accordingly. In other words: Say no to EVERYTHING! Absolutely everything, even ERE, and start adding back on the vital parts of your existence. In time you'll...

Re: What irrational woo-woo things are you into?

...Meditation: not woo. Change in brain patterns has been measured. Mindfulness-based psychotherapies have been developed. Chanting: imo also not woo. Sound waves are mechanical.

Re: The KonMari method

I didn't dump my stuff, either of the times I decluttered. How to dispose of new possessions is one of the first things on my mind when I buy something today. Cheap-ass buyers of second-hand goods are a special breed of people all to themselves man. It has actually spurred a bit of dissonance, becau...

Re: Cooking Levels (Wheaton Scale)

Can anyone recommend any 3+ cooking resources? I have found Alton Brown's Good Eats good for that, but I'd like some printed resources too.

I've got a two hour practice session today, incidentally, with the same Follow you saw in my earlier dancing video.
