As I wrote yesterday, I realized that almost none of my so-called “ideas” were really new, they were just stuff that I had picked up elsewhere. So going forward, I need topics that lead to new ideas. Well, maybe someone else already had that idea, but the important thing is that I don’t know about it. I should not get my ideas from memory, but from creativity.
Ok, sorry dear reader, this is getting out of hand. Writing this feels like a chore, and I always procrastinate blogging till the evening. Then I am more focused on getting to bed in time than on the actual task of generating ideas. The result is just random lists of things. I need to take more time for this. But for now, here is yet another list. But tomorrow is Saturday, let’s hope I can do a better post then.
#1: Pick themes that lead to completely new ideas instead of me remembering something I’ve heard or read before.
#2: Get readers (plural).
#3: Give updates on implementations of ideas mentioned here.
Yesterday I thought about having a “me”-day every now and then. So here is what I could do on such a day.
Doing this idea exercise in the evening proves to be suboptimal, because it often delays my bed time. So I should move that to some time earlier in the day. And while I’m at it, maybe I can find other things that should be scheduled differently (or at all).
Inspired by Jordan Peterson’s 13th rule (which he stated when asked after a lecture), I thought that all of the rooms in my apartment could really need an upgrade.
#1: Teach about computer stuff
#2: Give attention, approval, acceptance
#3: Be a role model
A few days ago I thought that this might be a good topic, so now I’ll think a little bit about this.
#1: Potatoes and quark with herbs and fried eggs.
#2: Chicken thighs with potatoes and broccoli.
#3: DIY Pizza with salami and vegetables.
There is a relatively new programming language called Rust, which I would like to learn. And learning is always easiest if you have fun while doing so. This is why I need some ideas what my first few programs could be, so they are easy enough to get to work as a beginner, but also useful enough to make me actually want to write them.
