A Matrix for Time Management

A Matrix for Time Management

Looking back on last month, I noticed a few things:

  • I had a total of 4 to-do lists. If you know me, that 4 is such an insignificant number.
  • The lists were split into 3 categories: Urgent, Medium Priority, Low Priority. All I crossed off were the urgent tasks

Tap Into Your Creativity

For all you creative types, this article is for you!

"Take this clever experiment, led by the psychologist Michael Robinson. He randomly assigned a few hundred undergraduates to two different groups. The first group was given the following instructions: “You are 7 years old, and school is canceled. You have the entire day to yourself. What would you do? Where would you go? Who would you see?” The second group was given the exact same instructions, except the first sentence was deleted. As a result, these students didn’t imagine themselves as seven year olds. After writing for ten minutes, the subjects were then given various tests of creativity, such as trying to invent alternative uses for an old car tire, or listing all the things you could do with a brick. Interestingly, the students who imagined themselves as young kids scored far higher on the creative tasks, coming up with twice as many ideas as the control group. It turns out that that we can recover the creativity we’ve lost with time. We just have to pretend we’re a little kid." - Jonah Lehrer

Lehrer mentions so many other ways to be creative in different settings; continue to the article here.

Periods, Cramps, and PMS

Medical Breakthrough Allows Mass Synchronized Scheduling

I started off the new year with my period.

Yes, I literally started spotting around 12midnight.

This cycle has been pretty bad compared to the past few months. I am very grateful that I've never experienced period cramps, but I go through major mood swings after the 5-7 days of hell. But enough about me, I found a handful of links you might find relevant to your own menstruation cycle.
