Saturday-Pentacle - Week 21 - 2017


App of the week –

Pushbullet

I found this app almost 4 years back when I was using an Android device  (Moto X – First Generation).

Purpose of this app is to integrate your phone seamlessly with your computer. So If you install this app both on your mobile phone and your computer, you’ll be able to do bidirectional things on both the devices.

For example – How many times you wanted to send that article from your phone to your laptop for better reading but you put it in the reading list and never opened it back on your computer. Now that problem is solved. Just share that article via push bullet app to your laptop/computer and get the article link right away on your laptop instantly.

It works backwards too, for example – How many times you wanted to quickly send your resume or any other document for that matter from your laptop to your phone instantly, but there was no option so you have to use email and send it to yourself and then read it on your mobile device. That problem is solved with Pushbullet. Just drag your file in Pushbullet – devices tab and send the file directly to your favorite device in an instant.

Plus you’ll be able to see all your phone notification on your laptop as well. But one caveat, Pushbullet will require permission to access your notification. So do it with understanding that Pushbullet can read all your notifications. It shouldn’t be a problem except for if you are a privacy nerd.

Just in case if I got you curious, you can go check out this app –


My most popular Instagram post recently

Streets of Daman!
.
Very few cities in india have that feeling of emptiness. Daman is one of them. A union territory with a Portuguese history. This place feels abandoned by the natives. Though the Nani Daman area is very structured but streets are almost empty with very few people in sight.
.
When I talked to my cabbie about this, he told, natives have shifted to places like London, but visit once in one or two years.
.
This city feels like a perfect example of having everything but still feeling empty.


Article(s) I’m enjoying (and pondering)

Exploring Myself as a Minimalist – A good read on minimalism. If you are feeling overwhelmed with life, this article may guide you in the right direction.

Summary of the article – Along with a personal story of minimal lifestyle, this article guides to ask ourselves three important questions –

  1. What is important?
  2. What do I love?
  3. And what do I want my life to be like?

Actionable from the article – You should ask these three questions to yourself and see what stays in your life and what goes out.

Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.


Until Next Saturday!

26 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known When I Was 20 Years Old

As Ludwig famously said –

Less is More.

We are always running behind something and someone. When we don’t really know the meaning of this philosophy, we may want everything we see.

In the past 10 years of my life, I’ve slowly started to comprehend this fact. That less is more and this eventually became a fundamental value of whatever I do.

There are many other learnings like this which shaped me as a person in past 10 years. I thought to share these with you, as some of you might be in your twenties and find them helpful. So I jotted down these 26 learnings from past 10 years of my life as A to Z below.

How did I learn them you ask? I have learned these from various books, people and experiences.

I wish I had known these 26 things when I was 20 years old but here they are for you. The 26 reminders –
