The more I explore Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, the more I am amazed at what can be done. This is a whole new world for me.
The first of many today. The older I get, the less enthused my internal clock is about time changes.
Currently reading: Churchill: Walking with Destiny by Andrew Roberts 📚
Finished reading: Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport 📚
Beta testing Markcase from @matthewlang. Loving this way to store bookmarks thus far. It keeps me mindful to not hoard information.
28 straight days of analog tracking of health metrics … replete with myths dispelled and exponentially better results.
Used to think my iPhone was the best piece of tech I’ve ever owned. Not anymore.
Books: Enough -> Bullet Journal Method -> Atomic Habits -> Digital Minimalism. Read and implemented in this order. Exponential increase in mental clarity and happiness. Exponential.
The Garmin fenix 5X Plus watch has radically altered my cycling training for the better. Everything is so much more accurate and the integration with MyFitnessPal has helped me understand why I’ve felt rotten over the past few weeks. Four days in and I feel 10x better.
Bought a Garmin fenis 5s Plus Sapphire Edition fitness watch today. After initial set up, first tweak? Notifications… off.
Peanuts Observation: Peppermint Patty is truly a wretched being. What was Schulz thinking?
Friday review will be late this week. It’s a long weekend for me and tomorrow is a volume indoor cycling day. Objective is 60 miles on the drainer… errr… trainer. The first 20 are usually good. After that… yeah.
Apparently we’re amateurs at parenting. Apparently.
It is indeed a banner day in my world. Benjamin Dreyer AND Cal Newport? This is awesome!!!!
Normally I’d wait until Friday to share this one… but THIS is THE book review of the year.
“An Anti-Facebook Manifesto, by an Early Facebook Investor”, a review of the Roger McName book, Zucked.
Tom Bissell rips FB. And it is epic and beautiful!
Please slow down. Please?
Next up in the TBR pile is the Andrew Roberts biography of Churchill. 1,152 pages. Not sure I want to tackle that one just yet. It’s a… commitment.
427 miles… 14,735 feet of climb… last full week of July… in Iowa.
Dear friends… I’m doing this. I am utterly insane.
Finished testing Notion. Love the idea, but it doesn’t fit my work… professional or personal. I did, however, discover something that does.
Plain text files.
And from the frigid tundra that is Minnesota, I hear @patrickrhone chortling… which is awesome.
We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. — Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night
Is it really worth spending 440 pages trying to understand how all this happened?
My head has been inside of several books. It’s probably for for the best.
