What’s Up Wednesday #30- What was obvious for Steve Jobs in 1984, How much should you save, digital hygiene
🤯 This interview with steve jobs in 1981 (when he was 25) is just great. He was very confident that everyone will use a computer in the future. So what are the revolutionary things that are starting right now that will be obvious in retrospect?
👑 This article analyzes different ways of savings to get 1x your annual earnings as savings at the age of 30, 3x at 40, 6x at 50, and 10x at age 67. The main message is to save as much as possible early on. Then you can even spend everything you earn later on and still hit your target. Compound interest FTW!
👨💻 „The discipline is to invest one time in getting your workflow right instead of paying a penalty for poor digital hygiene every single day.“ I often see people using their mouse on a slow-speed setting and dragging it across the table.
Once you are used to something, you just muddle through it and do not even think about changing it. Even when there are tips and instructions on how to use things a lot of us just ignore them and try to create our own version of how this works.
„The smarter you are, the more complex the problems you can solve— and the faster you can solve them. Intelligence is traditionally viewed as the ability to think and learn. Yet in a turbulent world, there’s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn.
I would love to have a better way to unlearn things in general. There are so many things you just do because you are used to them. Using keyboard shortcuts just makes more sense than moving your mouse if it is 10x faster.
👽 And if someone tells you about an alien, ghost or some-supernatural-thing here is a good case against them from Elon.
Have a great Easter Weekend 🐰🐣!
