Blog Commits on Git

When creating a new system, I usually create a new blog post associated with it. My blogging being done using hugo, and the source of the code being on git, I usually create git commits for each new post. Not only that, but I may also make configuration changes, or updates on a post. I classify in the following categories : Post: Creating a new post Update: Updating a post Config: Changing some configuration for the blog Theme: Changing parts of the theme So every time I create a new commit, I add those categories in front of the commit message, helping see better the last actions that were done.

My Evening Routine System

My previous post was about my morning routine system. Just the same way, I have a routine for the evening, right before getting to sleep.

There probably could be some improvement done, but for now, I am happy with it. As long as I follow the system, and that it has some uplifting elements, I will get better every single day. Read more

My Morning Routine System

To get started with systems, I’ll first lay out the current ones I have. The first one of those is my morning routine, which I have now been in for about a year. While each step is part of the system, I feel that it is separated into 3 parts, which roughly correspond to the place I do the action. The first bloc, which is pretty basic, is after waking up, before sitting down again. Read more
