It’s not what you read, it’s what you ignore

The video you are looking at. If you were to see it again. Would you like to see it again? How many times do you have to skip to get to the video you do want to see again, experience again?

[…] Basically, if it’s not improving my life in some way, it’s mental clutter and it’s out.

[…] don’t put energy into stuff you don’t want more of!

  1. Great talk, I did not expect this subject from Scott Hanselman !
    Anyway, I’ve read GTD, since then, I dropped every social media and chat software, and have only 10 feed in my feeder… but it gave me another problem : My work charge have decreased too much, I have too much free time and I get bored. 🙂

  3. I did not know the trend feature, I always learn something new here :p
    11,011 items ? You mean in binary I hope, it’s almost what I read in 3 years.

    “From your 10 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 109 items, clicked 20 items, starred 0 items, and emailed 0 items.
    Since June 25, 2009 you have read a total of 14,887 items.”
