JIRA is an antipattern | TechCrunch
Here’s an analogy. Imagine a city-planning tool which makes it easy to design city maps which do include towers, residential districts, parks, malls, and roads … but which doesn’t easily support things like waterworks, sewers, subway tunnels, the electrical grid, etc., which can only be wedged in through awkward hacks, if at all.

And don’t even get me started on asking engineers to estimate a project that someone else has broken down, into subcomponents whose partitioning feels unnatural, by giving them about thirty seconds per feature during a planning meeting, and then basing the entire project plan on those hand-waved un-researched off-the-top-of-the-head half-blind guesses, without ever revisiting them or providing time for more thoughtful analysis.

Changing number of days shown in your calendar — Work Smart and be Remarkable!
Actually, you can choose any number of days. This is very convenient if you want to look a little bit further into the future to plan your days. With the same trick you can also get a two-week-view, i.e., 14 days.

However, it is a hidden feature and you don't have direct access to it via the application menu. You have to type (or copy and paste) the following command into your Terminal and restart Calendar to see the change taken place:

Spaced Rep and Interleaved Practice - Ditch the 10,000 hour rule! Why Malcolm Gladwell’s famous advice falls short |
HHere’s a study that may surprise you. A group of eight-year-olds practiced tossing beanbags into buckets in gym class. Half of the kids tossed into a bucket three feet away. The other half mixed it up by tossing into buckets two feet and four feet away. After twelve weeks of this they were all tested on tossing into a three-foot bucket. The kids who did the best by far were those who’d practiced on two- and four-foot buckets but never on three-foot buckets.
