Stop Calling Night Owls Lazy

Waking up early is perceived as a quality. Which is ridiculous. There’s no reason to think of it as a quality.

levels.io on night owls, and the concept of time.

In a nut shell, where possible, we should be working when we are most effective, and when we do our best work.

Totally agree, and I tend to be a night owl as well, but I have a day job so balance can be difficult.

Time is such an odd construct.

Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed (The Real Reason For The Forty Hour Work Week)

My wife sent this over to me today and it’s a fantastic read. It’s funny because I was just talking to a co-worker about the exact scene from The Corporation mentioned by the author in this article.

Is college worth the cost?

Is college worth the cost? Many recent graduates don’t think so.

I certainly don’t think so. I regret my decision to attend University of Baltimore. I’ve saddled my family with a huge debt that will take years to pay off, and I’ve seen exactly zero return on investment.

I will say that I don’t feel the sane about community college. I got a lot out of my time there for a reasonable price and it kick started me on my career path. I feel it was a good value and time well spent.

YMMV, but in my case the things that have benefitted me the most in my career are things that I took the initiative to learn myself.
