Don’t Believe Everything You Think

Tim Ferriss’s podcast with BJ Miller is required listening. Dr. Miller specializes in palliative (a word I only learned this year) care.  The bullshit ends when a human enters the The Zen Hospice Project where the doctor practises. The doctor’s description of the flower ceremony at the hospice left me weepy.

The end is coming up on me faster than I’d like, and this podcast is a good reminder that I need to focus on the right things. What will my final thoughts be? They certainly won’t be concerned with a fucking server in New Jersey.

Do I Need Social Media Crutches?

https://freedom.to/ – This site is used to restrict your access to social media sites. Haven’t tried it yet, but Cal Newport has mentioned it. Feels a little like those breathalyzers attached to your car that will prevent you from starting it if you blow a .08 or something.

I’m not sure I’m willing to admit my problem. My intention was to avoid social media sites. I haven’t been perfect. Have once dipped into Instagram; checked messages in FB; and checked followers and messages in Twitter (I am most ashamed about this need to track followers).

Avoiding the news has been pretty easy. Except for John Oliver, I haven’t paid any attention to those who profit from current events. I ain’t giving up Oliver though.
