Letting Ideas Simmer [61/365]

Any complex enough problem will take time to solve. You’ll probably focus on it for a long time, and maybe even get so lost in it that you don’t even make progress anymore. You just go in circles. In that case, take a step back. When you do, your mind will have to stop focusing, and you’ll be able to take a look around. Notice what is there. It may hold the key for you to solve your problem.

About Your Second Brain [60/365]

I’ve been interested in the topic of the second brain as it seems a much more reliable way to store information. More than that, it would be the most efficient way to retrieve them instead of having just a big blob of everything which do not make sense to you.

A New Approach [57/365]

Well, I don’t think anymore that this 365 days of side project challenge is of any interest to people out there. Maybe I’m wrong, it is not really well validated. But I have not done it, so I don’t think I have any place to be doing that. So I’ll focus instead on learning and teaching at the same time, and I’ll start with a problem that I actually have.
