    That's the next on my list.

    I'm rereading Getting Things Done by David Allen. I got so rusty.

    Objectivity by Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison

    This book is amazing and I recommend it to everyone on TypeC. It's a fascinating exploration of the history of objectivity, its entry into scientific practice and its various incarnations. One of the best books about the history of science ever written, IMO.

    SERIOUSLY GUYS, READ IT, IT'S AWESOME AND WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

    Why?

    I stumbled on GTD last night relating to brain dump, as to relieve mental strain from keeping mental notes. I've been using one note, keep and sticky notes, tho lost a batch upon reinstalling windows
    Tho article advocated offline and paper, maybe for focusing

    Currently reading A Game of Thrones. The first book is accurately similar to the tv show adaption, and the plot is more or less the same, except they cut out details that don't need to be included. I didn't like what happened to Dany at the beginning of the show with Drogo in comparison to the books. Catelyn is harsher to Jon, Littlefinger's personality is slightly different and it isn't as blatantly obvious that he is untrustworthy. Lyanna Stark must be Jon Snow's mother, it makes so much sense based on her last words. Jon and Arya are my favourates in the book.

    That was a joke.

    I was introduced to GTD in college around the time I started my first company. I had a lot of other projects going on besides (also school...sometimes) and was just starting to drown.

    The system you learn from it is a bit excessive altogether but it teaches a couple of important habits and how to implement them consistently. Specifically, thinking through a project, how to translate that project into smaller, actionable steps and how to stay on top of the progress that youve made towards the larger goal. It's a very accessible crash course in Te, in other words.

    I recommended it to @Dr Mobius because that structure builds in a lot of regularity and stability into your life.
