WEEKLY ARTICLES

To-Do Lists Are Not the Answer to Getting Things Done

还记得在推荐Trello这款产品时我同时阐述的时间管理方法吗?作者同样采取了日历事项而不是to-do list的方法来管理任务。

使用日历的本质在于如果你的时间管理只有to-do list而没有schedule所有任务的话,就像任务一直没进排期的感觉。你的列表会变得越来越长,而你会越来越焦虑,直到最后放弃(破窗效应)。

为什么用日历纪录to-do list的效果会好呢?因为在你添加calendar事件时,你会充分意识到时间是多么的匮乏。当你开始记录时间,才发现一周能用来工作的时间其实并没有多少——这会迫使你去考虑表单上什么是真正重要,并愿意挽起袖子去做的。而不只是一味盲目的往列表里增加新项目然后永远不做。

时间是人最宝贵的资产,更重要的是,他对每个人都是公平的。你已经开始记账了,为什么不记录时间呢?

And because it’s so simple to add things, these lists tend to grow and grow. Even worse they encourage our default to be “yes” instead of “no.” Because it’s easy to say yes, that’s what we do.

When you schedule things, you are forced to deal with the fact that there are only so many hours in a week. You’re forced to make choices rather than add something to a never ending to-do list that only becomes a source of anxiety.

Being more productive isn’t always about doing more, it’s about being more conscious about what you work on and putting your energy into the two or three things that will really make a difference.

Google, Facebook, and Microsoft Are Remaking Themselves Around AI

未来在这里。

斯坦福副教授女科学家李飞飞和Snapchat人工智能研发主管李佳最近加入了Google Cloud,助力google全新的“AI as service”平台。

google想要在google cloud中提供内置的“人工智能”服务,以吸引对人工智能有需求的公司将云服务迁移到google上。除此之外,Facebook,Amazon,Microsoft都在尝试做这件事。在这些公司之间,对AI人才的争夺已经开始了。

未来的开发者可以将这些云计算平台的“图像识别”,”声音识别”,”机器学习”等服务嵌入自己的程序,新时代的App将有无数玩法和可能性。当然,这些平台现在在做的事就像在布局未来的底层基础设施——就像互联网时代最初的宽带和移动网络基站建设。应用层的战争,才即将打响。

the China-born Fei-Fei will lead a team inside Google’s cloud computing operation, building online services that any coder or company can use to build their own AI.This new Cloud Machine Learning Group is the latest example of AI not only re-shaping the technology that Google uses, but also changing how the company organizes and operates its business.

This includes services not just for image recognition, but speech recognition, machine-driven translation, natural language understanding, and more.

The trouble for all of these companies is that finding that talent needed to drive all this AI work can be difficult. Given the deep neural networking has only recently entered the mainstream, only so many Fei-Fei Lis exist to go around.

How I share information with my team

当团队越来越大后,每周开会来总结一周发生的事会显得不够高效。文章中Netflix的manager转而使用一个文档来保证整个团队的信息同步。文档中有这周的招人进度,新的功能上线更新情况,重要会议的总结等。这些基本的信息同样能保证之后某一天回头看每周的工作,都知道那周到底做了些什么。

With the larger team, I struggled to keep everybody informed in a timely way. It became obvious that I wasn’t effectively scaling team communication and I needed to make a change.

Every Friday, I carve out a couple hours to write my WIR. I try to keep notes throughout the week, but I am not always good about this. My goal is to have my WIR waiting in everybody’s inbox no later than first thing Monday morning.

The act of writing my WIR helps me extract the value from each meeting. It allows me to reflect and keep things moving forward. It makes me realize how much I “did” each week.

12 Signs You’re Working in a Feature Factory

只是坐在工位上,不停埋头完成交到手里的新功能开发工作,然后放到流水线上交给下一个开发。这样的工作状态,难道不是新一代的“feature工厂”吗?作为开发,应该有更大的权力去决定什么做,什么不做、开发的feature效果如何、接触产品的核心指标。而作为产品,更应该反复与开发沟通反馈,将开发的意见作为重要的考虑意见。

文中列举了12条避免开发成为新一代“流水线工人”的检查标准。热评说的好:” I started highlighting but I stopped when I noticed the whole article should be highlighted “

I started using the term when a software developer friend complained that he was “just sitting in the factory, cranking out features, and sending them down the line.”

WEEKLY PRODUCT

得到

付费知识音频服务。听杂志,听新闻,听书。邀请了一众意见领袖入驻开课——199元/年,每日更新音频。

作为逻辑思维团队出品的平台,别人都199一年,罗振宇自己的课搞了个1元/4年。然而App内购充值必须208元一充,剩下的钱也就很容易来买这个1元/4年的课。当然还有4.5元/次的有声书,也会因此抱着“不买白不买”的心态听听看。

当然了,究竟能“得到”多少,永远是靠自己消化的。毕竟,付费的价值更多在于,让你有“花了钱必须好好听”的动力,免费“得到”的东西,总没有付费得来的那么珍视。

Paradise

when she was just a girl 当她还只是个小女孩

she expected the world 她憧憬这世界

but it flew away from her reach 但世界却背离了她的想象

and the bullets catch in her teeth 子弹击中目标

life goes on,it gets so heavy 生活沉重地过

the wheel breaks the butterfly 车轮碾碎蝴蝶

every tear a waterfall 每一次泪如雨下

in the night,the stormy night, 在每个风雨交加的夜晚

she’ll close her eyes 她闭上眼睛

in the night,the stormy night, 在每个风雨交加的夜晚

away she’d fly 远走高飞

and dreams of para-para-paradise 梦见了天堂
