Daily Productive Sharing 148 - Why Do You Keep Writing?

One helpful tip per day:)

(The English version follows)

#note_taking

为什么要坚持写作?每个人可能都有不同的答案,高产作者 Luc P. Beaudoin 有自己的答案:

It clarifies my thinking. It’s necessary for my projects. It makes the world a better place.

类似地,制作 Daily Productivity Sharing 也帮助我更好地消化每天读到的好文章。在此之前,我每天的 RSS 阅读流程大致如此:

  1. 打开 Reeder 看看有没有新内容;
  2. 挑出其中感兴趣的阅读;
  3. 把读完觉得不错的文章标记为喜欢;
  4. IFTTT 会自动把这些星标文章同步到 Pinboard 内。

尽管我的 Pinboard 内会有大量星标文章,但是我好像从没有回去重读过。

自从开始准备 Daily Productivity Sharing ,我会主动去重读其中的星标文章,挑选里面的精华分享出来。所以整个流程也有变化:

  1. 打开 Reeder 看看有没有新内容;
  2. 挑出其中感兴趣的阅读;
  3. 把读完觉得不错的文章标记为喜欢;
  4. IFTTT 会自动把这些星标文章同步到 Pinboard 内;
  5. 将读完觉得不错又适合分享的文章加到 Goodlink 内;
  6. 每周定期从 Goodlink 内挑选适合分享的文章重读,做好摘要,写好导语;
  7. 将写好的草稿放到 Substack 上,设置好定时发布。

所以增加的几步反过来促使我更加主动地回顾读过的好文章。

如果你觉得今天分享有帮助,不妨把它分享给你的朋友

Why do you keep writing? Everyone may have a different answer, but the prolific author Luc P. Beaudoin has his own.

It's necessary for my projects. It makes the world a better place.

Similarly, producing Daily Productivity Sharing has helped me to better digest the great articles I read every day. Prior to this, my daily RSS feed reading routine went something like this.

  1. open Reeder and see if there is anything new;
  2. pick out the ones that interest me and read them;
  3. star the articles that as I like them;
  4. IFTTT automatically syncs these starred articles to Pinboard;

Although I have a lot of starred articles in my Pinboard, I never seem to go back and re-read them.

Since I started preparing Daily Productivity Sharing, I've been actively rereading the starred posts and picking out the best ones to share. So the process has changed.

  1. open Reeder and see if there is anything new;
  2. pick out the ones that interest me and read them;
  3. star the articles that as I like them;
  4. IFTTT automatically syncs these starred articles to Pinboard;
  5. add shareable articles to Goodlink;
  6. regularly reread articles from Goodlink each week that are suitable for sharing, prepare a summary and write an introduction;
  7. put the finished drafts on Substack and set up postings.

So the additional steps have in turn encouraged me to be more proactive in reviewing the good articles I have read.

If you find today's sharing helpful, why not share it with your friends?

Excerpt

Tundra’s exist valuation was also over $1B. That has enabled me to work on cool projects for my entire career. Moreover, at Tundra I learned about ISO processes, and wrote their first technical writing ISO specs.

I love writing. It clarifies my thinking. It’s necessary for my projects. It makes the world a better place.

She said “When I want to learn about something, I write a book about it”.

To understand the human mind, you basically have to be an IT engineer, because the brain and mind are information technology. That’s why so much of psychology fails.

One of the fundamental reasons that theoretical AI is a cognitive science is that by implementing software models of mind we test those models, and we develop our thinking about the human mind.
