I asked my coworkers the following question: “What is the one truth, in a sentence, you’ve learned from being in a help desk position”? Here are the answers.
Over time, my videos definitely got smaller. This is because I got used to Org in different areas of recording my thoughts. I discussed these couple of times before: tasks, task notes, and journal.
In his 5th Emacs podcast, Rakhim discusses the difficulties of windows management in Emacs. I agree with him. Emacs' Windows are a pain. It was probably one of the longest pet peeves I had with the program, and it wasn’t until this podcast that I realized that I’m much better off than I used to be.
If you’ve bseen following me online for the last month or so (especially on reddit) you’d know I’ve been engaged in shifting away from WordPress and into the world of Hugo.
I used to write all my tasks, personal and work, into one tasks.org file. On Sunday night, this was good. I had 5 tasks on my list, and I was ready to start my work week. But it didn’t take long (two days actually) for tasks.org to become monster.org. It didn’t happen because of the number of tasks, which I kept (more or less) under control. It happened because of the size of the projects I was working on.
When I write, I live in Emacs (with the awesome Solorized theme) inside Org-Mode. With time, I found that Org has already made me more effienet writer and note taker. I write notes in every meeting now, rather it’s my “turn” or not. I write notes as I work, about every solution and every problem I’m facing. I write first thing in the morning, usually about org-related thoughts I had as I wake up, over a cup of Sumatra cofee (little almond milk, one pack of sugar).
