Here's a philosophical look into how to focus intensely / Boing Boing
via Boing Boing https://boingboing.net

The fine folks at Freedom of Thought share tips on How to Focus Intensely, and it shares a lot of good ancillary insight in the process.

From the transcript:

Habit #1: Abstaining from Short-Term Pleasure Seeking The best way to change our code, arguably, is through our habits. By cultivating the ability to abstain from short-term pleasure seeking, we can focus on activities that produce more long-term pleasure. So, here are some practices that can help us build the habit of abstaining.

Meditation: Meditation allows one to embrace boredom and to not be bothered by it. It trains the brain to not seek out immediate pleasure in boredom. It allows the mind to stay calm when working on activities that require more patience to produce pleasure.

Deep Work Practice: I’ve talked about this one too many times already. I have a video on it and discussed it in my podcast with Dr. Jubbal from Med School Insiders. You can check those out if you want to learn more and I’d also recommend reading Deep Work by Cal Newport.

Not To-Do List: This is the inverse of a to-do list. Instead of telling you what to do for the day, it tells you what activities to abstain from. The real difficulty is in adhering to this list. However, if you keep it out and in front of you (by using a PostIt for example), it can be a great reminder to abstain from short-term pleasures.

Media captionAbout 20 signs have appeared in Oxford and the council claims they make the city hard to navigate
Fake signs like Facebook Row and Snapchat End are causing confusion around the streets of Oxford.

The social media-inspired signage was installed by the same mysterious artist who put up Middle Earth and Narnia signs in nearby Didcot.

The new signs include Twitter Lane, Emoji Alley, Instagram Ave, Google Walk, Selfie Passage, and WTF Lane.

Oxford City Council said the signs would be removed as they make the city hard to navigate.

About 20 of them have appeared in the city so far.

David Brooks / Trump's Lizard Wisdom
And yet I can’t help but wonder if that kind of background has provided a decent education for dealing with the sort of hopped-up mobsters running parts of the world today. There is growing reason to believe that Donald Trump understands the thug mind a whole lot better than the people who attended our prestigious Foreign Service academies.
