5 things (2017 #3)

  1. A bunch of very interesting episodes from Tim Ferris. Episode 136 is QA session with Naval Ravikant where he gives away his 2 main tips: a) Teach yourself how to be happy b) Learn to make (good) and break (bad) habits, do it at least every 6 months. Episode 138 is full of gems from Seth Godin – he talks about how he manages his life using principles. Episode 139 is with Walter O’Brien (aka Scorpion) – explaining why super smart people have a hard time getting along with other people, IQ vs EQ, speculations on human head transplant future and fun stories from experience doing challenging tasks.
  2. As I listened to Tim Ferris show episode 135 with Luis von Ahn about building companies and education I found out this latest project Duolingo. I started to use Duolingo and picked up Spanish language to give it a try.
  3. Listened to JavaScript Jabber episode 231 where they talk about Code wars. Code wars is a site where one can solve tasks using different programming languages and earn ranks (similar to martial arts ranks).
  4. When learning more about philosophy using Angular components I found an article series on veselion.io blog. The article series explains concepts related to Angular components like Angular as a tree of components, communication between components, architecture and testing practices.
  5. We have had a more than week of snow and it’s not melting yet. It’s nice and white outside, and not very cold.
