Bad news equal bad habits

 I am still on my journey to limit the amount of news consumption. I prefer to read financial news and business analysis, but I am so conditions to read local news that I can’t help it.

That is why it is important to look at what we are conditioned to do and improve it when this habit stops serving us.

In the past, local news was very important to me. I could be always up to date and chose what to do at that date. The more I grow as a person, the more I focus on long-term goals and on that level of understanding, local news is just a noise. Many politicians or other institutions will want your attention. And the easiest thing to do is to say something scandalous. But there is nothing for you and the worse is that you pay with your mental energy and attention.

Instead of working on your own goals, you might use this to escape the cool things you need to do.

The solution is difficult, but the only possible one, stop practicing bad habits and adopt better one.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
