Hi. I’ve been using internet since 33.6k dial-up modem. Yeah, got it from the start, way-way back.
Sometimes, I wonder – what was my life would be if I will never encounter Internet at such young age. Especially, then your brain is still developing. Will I be more productive, faster, healthier and most importantly, happier. I don’t know.
But I know one thing – Internet is not bad. As a junk food not bad. And other bad habits are not actually bad. Abuse is bad. Ignorance is bad. Nicotine is bad.
Enough ramblings, let’s do something practical
Ok, today I want to encourage you to use this simple trick. If you got an iPhone, turn your screen into grayscale mode.
There are studies that tell and blah blah blah. **** that bull****. I tell from my experience – it makes your phone uninteresting.
As your phone become more un-interesting, you are going to use it less.
I will not be going to post pictures and write how-to – you can do it on your own. Google it.
Just turn your phone into grayscale! Farewell, bros!
Alright, this ain’t going to be a how-to article. Just a quick rambling about learning.
Never stop. Always explore. The moment you think “Aha! I got this!” is the moment you already left behind.
Usually, that kind of bullshit crap everybody out there is telling. You may settle down, you may do whatever fuck you want! Just remember – if you step a path on a road as a developer, you learn until you retire.
Make your life easier but do not overengineer things. Remember – there is a life outside your chair. Have fun!
Allows to quickly search any CDN you want. That I really like about it, that it is always searching for the freshest version available. No need to figure it out myself. Great little workflow for quick projects.
Sometimes, then I wanted to write about something, some random thoughts popups in my mind: “Is this good for my career? Is my future employer will benefit from reading this? Maybe other colleagues will tell that I’m not as good as I should”. Why I’m creating this boundaries inside myself in order to please people I even don’t know? Let’s talk a little bit about this, if you might have similar issues.
