Experiment: no web browser and mail client on smartphone

Smartphone

I really like books about psychology, about human behavior researches and the impact of technical innovations on our lifes. Similar to other people, I use computer and smartphone, but also like make small “experiments” with them. The newest one is I think the most interesting one: I decided to remove two “core” apps from my smartphone. Web browser and mail client. Yes, these two apps. Why? Because I work remotely, I work as a software developer and I use computer almost all day. It’s stupid to move from computer to… use them same things, but on smartphone. I’ve already disabled all notifications, I really like minimalism, but this is something new for me.

I will write more information about that experiment in next posts and inform you, about progresses and advantages/drawbacks of that solution. I started… almost week ago. Yeah, it was supposed to be very small test for few days, but during it, I decided to extend that period to… probably indefinite. I see too many benefits for such small change, but will write about them on next posts, stay tuned and write, what do you think about that idea!

Pandemic advantages

Pandemic

May you live in interesting times – says the old Chinese curse for our enemies. We definitely had to live in such times, because hardly anyone expected, that the COVID pandemic would change our daily lives so much, it would affect, it would seem, completely peaceful functioning. However, nothing lasts forever, and changes are not so much something to defend against, but something to wait and prepare for: sometimes worse, sometimes better, but changes. Was that current situation only bad? Definitely not. In my opinion, the COVID pandemic has a lot of advantages, and a few of them would like to share with you in this post.

Why I get up early

Get up early

As I wrote in many posts before, I work remotely. It has a lot of benefits and I will write about them (and also about drawbacks) in one of future posts. One of these advantages is fact, that I don’t have to get up early, preparing and go to work. It’s true but… I still get up early, very early according to many people who know me. What time do I do this, why I do this, and why should you try this even if you work remotely? This post is about these things. Probably many people will prefer getting up later, but I think, it’s bad idea.

Small story about life decisions and cheese

Cheese

It’s very small story based on one part of one Polish book.

Imagine, that there is a local shop with thousands kinds of cheese.
You shop in this store every day.
And every fuc*** day in your life, you choose gouda cheese.
Always, every time, your whole life.

Imagine, you are dying.
Will you happy knowing, that every day you was secure, you made secure, proven choice?
Or maybe you will regret all these, wasted days?

Few words about meditation

Meditation

I have been planning this post for a long time, but there has always been something “more important”. But finally, it’s time to write about meditation. In the beginning I must said one important thing – I’m not very experienced in meditation. I tried and use several techniques, but I’m not a big source of knowledge about that. If you want to see professional opinions, professional descriptions and tricks, use good literature for that. I can only describe my feelings, my observations and what I think about mediation. It’s only my opinion, do not use it as general “rating”.
