Unintentionally (not randomly) analog themed
Here are 5 things I wanted to share with you this week.
🔀 Life Randomizer
This video is a reminder to try and mix more novelty into my days. It’s great to have routines, but leave room for serendipity.
I installed a new porch light at my house this weekend. I had to cut some custom holes in the mount to run cables through. Luckily I had bought this nibbler. It made quick and relatively easy work of cutting through the metal pieces.
📓 Bullet Journal
I switch back and forth between digital and analog productivity tools. Currently, I’m back to using an analog notebook and the bullet journal method. To learn the basics of this message, watch the instruction video below.
🪑 Office Chair Upgrade
I didn’t realize how terrible the standard office chair wheels were until I upgraded mine. These rollerblade-style wheel replacements make moving around in a chair feel incredible. They also work on more than just perfectly smooth surfaces like carpets or old uneven wood floors.
🚪 The Trivial Request
What the Freedman and Fraser findings tell us, then, is to be very careful about agreeing to trivial requests. Such an agreement can not only increase our compliance with very similar, much larger requests, it can also make us more willing to perform a variety of larger favors that are only remotely connected to the little one we did earlier. It’s this second, general kind of influence concealed within small commitments that scares me.
