I have been trying many task management systems over the years with varying success. Last year I was doing some work at a research lab, and some neuroscientists recommended a system by Magdalena Bak-Maier called The Get Productive Grid.

The Portuguese word for «Pull» is pronounced «Push». After 15 years here I still look like an idiot opening doors. I read the word, my brain processes it, and I push.

That feeling when you’ve struggled with an intricate problem for days, and you finally manage to find an elegant solution. Time for a coffee!

I am on a quest to read more books in 2018. So far I’ve read Uncommon Type, a surprisingly good collection of short stories by Tom Hanks (yes, that one), and The Making of a Chef by Michael Ruhlman. Next up is The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo.

At the end of last year I purchased a refurbished WASD Code Poker keyboard for a good price. I wasn’t too thrilled with the keycaps so I ordered a custom set from Signature Plastics which I picked up yesterday. I like it!

Tomorrow morning I am jumping on a plane, and eventually I will end up in Norway for the holidays. God Jul to everybody!
