Happy Tuesday, happy June!
This month is off to a great start. I have been writing more consistently. I have put a new productivity system in place (Mixture od Asana and Google Sheets). The system is based on Nat Eliason’s post on productivity. The next step is to implement the earlier bed rise and more exercise.
Hope you enjoy this week’s “Tuesday Letter” :)
…you can significantly raise your probabilities of making the right decisions by open-mindedly triangulating with believable people. Principles by Ray Dalio
Working with people you respect and know are knowledgable is crucial for success.
More than anything else, what differentiates people who live up to their potential from those who don’t is their willingness to look at themselves and others objectively and understand the root causes standing in their way. Principles by Ray Dalio
Internally I understand that this is an absolute truth, but looking at yourself is hard. I found that journaling can help with digging deep into one’s mind.
I read “Principles” a while back. Almost all the quotes I receive in Readwise are fantastic. I know for sure I will be giving it a read sometime soon. I can’t recommend it enough.

I ran into a couple of problems with Azure at work. Colin’s blog was a lifesaver, especially a post on Azure Pipeline Variables.

Learn in Public - I come back to this post once in a while. I understand the importance of working in public but don’t do it regularly. Here, swyx does a great job describing how to actually learn in public in a very inspiring way.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
The original recipe is from America’s Test Kitchen. The steps are the same, the only thing I changed are the ingredients to make the cookies way less sweet, and as a consequence a little more healthy.
