What did I learn this week?
1. That networks need to have a purpose
Linked In is not a good network. It would be if you could view your contacts visually and if you could group them by purpose. I also hate Linked In. YMMV.
2. That I already have my tasks written in my calendar
I just need to follow my calendar
3. That I need to work out for 10 minutes every day
4. How to create a separate calendar in Google
5. How to better craft prompts for ChatGPT or Bard
Oddly, I like LinkedIn Learning - except when they prompt to post "certificates" for 30 minutes of listening to a podcast.
6. More about other functional areas in the company that I work for
7. How completely ass-backward other parts of my life are
This has been a common occurrence over the past 5 years, but it's as if my learning has been accelerated
8. How to write myself into a corner and then identify a way out
9. How big a difference space has on my behavior/ emotions / productivity
I hate open work areas. I physically cringe now at the thought of returning to work in one. I get distracted by EVERYTHING and every voice talking around me. At some companies, I had my own cube - so people could only come at me from one direction. That helped. All of the companies I have worked at since then I now realize my back was exposed or people were constantly walking around me. I had to get up and go to a conference room to get work done.
10. How much I don't know about climate change or problems with the environment
I have to do more research. Most of what I know is blurbs or newspaper articles. Nothing very in-depth.
