Welcome, this is my new short post place, where I post shorter things that would normally go to twitter but I don’t want to lose all of this content.

- Apr 23, 2020Taking breaks
I (try to) use the Pomodoro technique as often as possible. I have an app for my watch to start a 25-minute focus session. And the goal is to focus for 25 minutes on a task and then take a short 5-minute break. I always get more done when I use that technique. The break is the reward for the focus work. As far as I am concerned :) I don’t fall into the trap of distracting myself too much when I use the Pomodoro technique.Read More

- Apr 22, 2020Limit playing games/distraction
I got back into playing video games and especially online games but it’s a trap as well. I already played more during the day than I usually do. Which is a bad habit. I think I need to restrict myself more. Although I used a timer to limit my daytime playing to 10-20 minutes. I just play too much.
- Apr 21, 2020Back into online gaming
I got back into online gaming. The process was slow but got accelerated by the pandemic. First, it was with a friend whom I used to play at his place. We just played party games with his new girlfriend. Even before the pandemic, we wanted to play more together (because his girlfriend lives in another city). I set up everything, and then the pandemic hit, and now we played a couple of more times.Read More
- Apr 13, 2020 Working on my environment
It was time to work on my environment again. After streamlining the theme for vim across my devices (for some reason I still had solarized dark on my MacBook instead of solarized light), I decided it‘s time to look at other font options. After researching a little bit, sitting on it for a few days, trying out a few options, I finally settled on Fira Code It has ligatures and I must say, I did not think I would appreciate them as much as I do.Read More
- Apr 3, 2020Profit first: Status report
I started implementing profit first at the beginning of the year, after I listened to the Audio book. The book got recommended by a bunch of people and I knew I wanted to get better at handling my business finances so I thought I try it out. The book was really great and there is so much truth in the way he explains the mindset most entrepreneurs have. If you don’t look at your balance sheet to make spending decisions you might want to try out this model.Read More
- Apr 3, 2020Publish more
I want to publish more, but I don’t want to have it go out to the void of twitter. I found this neat idea from Justin Miller of Micro.blogs/microposts. And I will try this out. Short thoughts or ideas that would normally go to twitter or nowhere will live here.
