Sleep And Exercise

While it is well known that sleep and exercise are important, it is equally important to take it easy and not give yourself a hard time.

Certain things in life, nature, birds, cats and dogs, are naturally infused with happiness. Even an object like a bicycle is happiness. Find your inner happiness by focusing on what makes you happy.

Ups And Downs

Understand that life is cyclic, and ups and downs are a part of our daily existence.

Trusting yourself is essential, and if you find there is a problem that you need to address, don't be afraid to seek help. If you feel you are miserable constantly, you can get therapy for an unbiased diagnosis and treatment.

Ways To Be Happy

  • Writing is therapy, and listing out what we are grateful for, on a daily basis amplifies our happiness about the good things in our lives.
  • Eating healthy and unprocessed food, like fruits and vegetables makes our body and mind happy.
  • Nature is pure delight, and even being next to a tree can provide a silent kind of happiness.

Avoid using 'Just'

When writing emails or even in speaking, individuals, tend to use quite a lot the word 'just'; while it is a polite term, 'just' suggests also insecurity and the need to ask for permission.

Therefore, whenever you are try to show some authority, go for another word. It is safer.

Speak vs. Talk

While the two verbs are totally synonyms, their use has quite a different impact on people. Therefore, when you invite someone 'to talk', studies have shown that you are more prone to meet resistance than when you just propose them 'to speak'.

The first verb, it seems, is often associated with the idea of not paying enough attention to the other person's words.

Leaving out the guesswork

Your manager may not put in the effort up front to articulate the expectations she/he has so that you're on the same page from the start. It may leave you guessing what successful completion might look like, and then frustrate you both when you think wrong.

To be fair, at a certain level of seniority, it becomes more reasonable for a manager to expect you to know what you're doing and work out the details by yourself. But even then, a good manager knows when to invest the time to get more aligned on those things.

Dealing with a lack of direction
  • Name the issue. Your manager might already be aware of the problem.
  • If your boss wants you to take more ownership, you can say that you want to take more ownership for your projects but that you want to do so with confidence knowing what she/he is envisioning.
  • You may have to draw those details out of your boss with each new assignment.
  • Once you get started on the work, consider giving an early view of your work to your manager, to have a chance to be provided with input early on.
  • It may take a few rounds to figure out exactly what something should be.

Crossing the chasm

There is such a thing as startup puberty and it occurs when your product starts to gather momentum. A startup may be so busy working on getting to this stage that they are caught off guard and may not be ready for the change. The most important changes for a product:

  • You are no longer your customer. Once you hit product market-fit, you need more data as you can no longer reasonably represent all your customers.
  • You have the ability to test much more. At this point, you can start optimizing because you're pulling enough users or customers to correlate product tweaks with behavior.
Modular teams

New needs mean you need more people. To set people up for success, you need to make your product and engineering teams modular. Then you can split up problems that people can work with independently.

As you grow, your leverage will be in having many autonomously led teams, working side by side. This will enable you to scale easily later.

Before We Click Buy

There are now many things to consider before ordering something:

  • Should we add to the burden of the ‘essential workers’ already toiling hard?
  • Shouldn’t we save the money for the uncertain future?
  • Shouldn’t we give it to a homeless charity, to those less fortunate in these troubled times?
  • Is ordering safe?
Shop Small

This seems to be the new mantra among the responsible people who are worried about themselves and their families. Large supply chains have a greater chance of transmitting diseases. Small shops also need our business to survive this catastrophe.

These small shops are also trying very hard to follow all CDC recommendations regarding protective gear and social distancing.

The Calculations Of Light
  • The colour-sensitive receptors that humans have, called melanopsin, measure the amount of blue or yellow light in the atmosphere and likewise regulate our circadian rhythm.

Colour Is A Private Sensation
  • Research proves that the universal emotional responses that we have when we see a colour tend to be the same, even if the actual colour is different, as our conscious perception of those colours varies.
  • The day-night cycle of living things is impacted by the ambient light, where the morning yellow light awakens us or makes us feel happy, and the dominance of blue light at night makes us feel sleepy.

Audio Blogs

Essentially audio blogs, taking advantage of the freedom of speech, early podcasts were chatty, amateur products, until some heavyweights joined the bandwagon, like MTV VJs, journalists and talk-radio personalities.

This was fueled by the fact that the old public radio medium had certain creative limitations along with rules and regulations that were not a problem in the world of podcasting.

Experiments in broadcasting
  • Podcasting started evolving with certain progressive companies like Stitcher along with early sponsors playing to a crude, uneven audience.
  • Podcasting kept growing slowly, even during the 2008/09 recession, which was ironically a creative peak for the medium.
  • Many new shows launched and things eventually reached a plateau in 2010/11.
