Navigate Obscurity 2019
I read books and then I forget about them. So I take notes. But then I never go through the notes again. So I am trying to find nicer ways to revisit notes and themes from books in a more engaging and non linear way. The notes are complimentary, and in no way a substitute of the books. Therefore reading the original material first is highly recommended. Click on the book covers to explore them.
Everything we do, from breathing, to exercising and daydreaming requires energy. All energy is produced in the cellular level, and is produced on demand – it cannot be stored. Therefore, everything you do always antagonises this limited resource of energy. Higher level functions such as creativity and rational thinking are not essential for surviving – at least not like breathing, moving and digestion are - and as a result they score lower in the energy priority list. At the same time, such higher level functions require a lot of energy. So how do you achieve and maintain peak mental performance and clarity of thought? By boosting your energy production and minimising the energy expenditure of other functions.
