Weekly I/O #1

“Weekly I/O” is inspired by Shane Parrish’s and Tim Ferris's weekly newsletter. Haven’t figured out the exact form and purpose of this weekly, so let’s just take it as a writing practice first and we’ll see how it goes.

Here are some thoughts and notes I have this week:

1. How to choose which project to work on? “When you choose projects, try to ensure you can win even if you fail. Choose projects based on the skills you’ll develop and relationships you’ll build”
(From Podcast: The Tim Ferris Show #390)

The relationships to build here I think is not limited to building new connections. I feel this way since I learned a lot from working on a project with my old friends recently.

2. “If you cannot be happy with what you have, nothing you ever get will make you happy”
(From Podcast: The Tim Ferris Show #390)

3. 皮膚是生活狀態的資訊濃縮
(From
吳致賢(Jhih-Sian Wu)sharing)

4.「你在山上找不到的,就是多餘的」
(From YouTube: 【野外求生】森林護衛隊帶我追蹤山老鼠!)

When I heard the line from the video, I immediately thought about the aforementioned saying from Tim Ferris “If you cannot be happy with what you have, nothing you ever get will make you happy”. Not quite the same in each context but both imply the same thing.

5. I quit coffee one week ago. So far I feel good for not having any insomnia these days (except for last night have to work overnight for hackathon). But obviously, any conclusion should not be drawn this soon.
(Thoughts)
