Splitting lists up...

August 8, 2023 |

Okay okay,

this is the second time in a row, where I am doing something list/productivity related.

I don't have to explain that I am an avid user of TODO... Read more

Crossing things out...

August 4, 2023 |

Ahoy, everyone

hope you're doing well. ❀️

June 1, 2023 |

Okay. So you might be thinking. What is going on with that title?

I just wanted to talk about very commonly used words that you and I write/say every day and their synonyms.

All of those words in the title are in that prestigious list and I couldn't come up with something actually sensible. πŸ˜…

Hey hey.

So for today, I wanted to "reiterate" a basic "principle" I encountered quite a lot today.

This has the advantage that in case of any... Read more

Provide options, not lame excuses

May 25, 2023 |

Ahoy, everyone.

This one was a "lesson" I learned first from my dad and got reminded of today. So thanks, Dad.... Read more

April 27, 2023 |

Hey hey.

Hope you're doing well. ❀

So today, I've been writing up some stuff again and wanted to share a simple little trick that not too many people do.

That is reading out your texts aloud. I mean... Have you ever caught someone doing that?

Well, the reason is simple. If... Read more

πŸ‘» You can't see... the verbs?

April 24, 2023 |

Originally I wanted to obscure the title even more, but then I thought... This way literally no one can predict today's topic... I'd rather NOT do that...

Camouflaged verbs. That's the theme.

You might be thinking...Β What are those mysterious verbs you're talking... Read more

Waiting for Godot

April 19, 2023 |

You know those kinds of days...

You can't really do anything at work because of some major obstruction. Also, you can't leave 6 hours early, so what do you do?

Well... Should've prepared in advance.

Those days always come a bit unexpected, which is why I'd like to put off work that can be done... Read more

Especially when a lot is going on this... Read more

My most useful AutoHotkey shortcuts...

April 5, 2023 |

IΒ love AutoHotkey.

It basically enables you to do (nearly) anything on an OS level using a keyboard shortcut. That's super super useful, especially if you have longer, more complex actions.

So I wanted to share some of the most useful shortcuts, which I use in my daily life. (In no particular... Read more
