Brain Training Apps - playing a different game each day - hack
Brain training apps like lumosity have been gaining momentum. I did a small personal study a while ago and found that the only thing I improved was my game scores for just those apps. It also turns out my biggest improvement happens in the first few session...

What not to keep in evernote?
I've got a love-hate relationship with Evernote.  Tried throwing everything inside it  for a while and it seemed to work when I first started a few years ago. Now I found "search" has become less useful. It just returns too many results.  Finding things is ...

Week 2 Activity
Growing up, my family shared a house with my mother's sisters family. My uncle, a Tradesman had a room filled with tools, raw materials, and potentially recyclable spare parts. The tool room.

Things were loosely organised but find-able. On the edge of order-disorder. 

Watching my uncle work at home improvement projects, introduced me to new tools. During his project, I helped out by fetching tools for him.  Run to the tool room, and have to hunt down the target. Of course I made mistakes and brought back the wrong tool, but every time I went back I'd find something else interesting peak my curiosity. I learned countless lessons. using the right tool for the job, being organised to the point of practicality, breaking down a job into tasks. 

When I wasn't helping out, I would spend hours in the room, copying my uncles actions, eventually peaking my interest in DIY, crafts, and making things.

As children, we all helped my father by running and getting tools.  His workroom was very organized.  He could tell us to go to the room, face north, put out our left hand, at 10:00 we would find what ever tool we were suppose to bring.  Often we had no idea what the tool was before we went.  We just brought back what we found based on his directions.  We were usually right.
