Links to “org-mode”

Start simple and workable, and then unfold to something more complex. (Start simple and workable, and then unfold to something more complex.)

By induction, if you can progress from complexity \(k\) to \(k + 1\), you can progress infinitely.

Over time, I’ve gotten to know the amazing beast that is org-mode . It is astounding how much you can do—but perhaps even more impressive is that you can start using it to do interesting things from the first day. You can learn in 5 minutes how to create headlines, expand and collapse nodes, write text, etc. That is not hard. In that way, it is a simple tool.

This, I feel, should be part of my life philosophy. Wanna start a self-reflective practice? Make it extremely, dead, simple at first. Make it solid. Then, gradually, you can build from there. But you need that foundation to be laid down first, otherwise things are all like the kids who took caffeine or steroids…stunted growth, or premature experience.

Simple life philosophy. Simple running routine. Simple self-reflection routine. To start out with.

How I made this website

🚧 TODO 🚧 This is a note I’m actively working on.

(I guess some of this bleeds into my ⚡️ emacs config )

The ethos behind Quotebacks is one of the reasons why I love the product. Yes, it’s a great addition to my thinking toolkit, allowing me to store quotes without polluting my note-taking and thinking system. But it’s also a tool which aims at making the Internet a more generous place. If you regularly write online, give it a try!
