News of the Week: Let’s Do a Little LifehackingBy
Recapping the interesting and significant news of this past week.
I am a big fan of Lifehacker.com for its useful tips and tricks with technology and life in general. Recently I found a few particularly useful and insightful posts that are worth sharing. First, How to Quickly Read a Terms of Service. Have you ever read a TOS from start to finish? Fat chance. But there are definitely ways to get down to the most important stuff in minimal time.
When was the last time you said you didn’t have the time to do something? You probably told someone that at least once in the past week. But really, what we mean when we say that is “that activity isn’t as important to me as something else.” That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s good to finally say that. It’s kind of freeing. Here is an article that addresses that kind of language: Instead of Saying “I Don’t Have Time,” Say “It’s Not a Priority”.
I am a big proponent of the idea that you should work smarter, not harder. It turns out that it is almost always a bad a idea to work longer.
When your work overwhelms you, you need to get organized. But how, exactly, do you do that? Try David Allen’s GTD methodology.
Being extremely good at anything almost always involves being somewhat addicted.
Back to a little politics…
Have your heard about this ridiculous debate around after-birth abortion? It is definitely the logical conclusion of the pro-abortion philosophy, but even lefties like Slate think it is completely out of control – and that’s saying something!
Wayne Root, former VP candidate for the Libertarian Party in 2008 and current member of the Libertarian Party National Committee, recently had a radio interview where is said “It’s gotta be Romney, there is no choice.” I have never been a big fan of Root, but this is completely terrible.
And finally, here is a funny pick that Doug Stuart sent me:
If you have missed the most recent LCC posts from the past week or so, here is what’s up:
- The Year of the Bible in Pennsylvania
- On the Consistency of Christian Libertarianism
- Radio interview with the Aaron Barker Program today–listen live!
- Responding to Tim Suttle
