Speed Reading and Guitar. Haven't started the speed reading practice, but apparently all it takes is a good workout of your motor skills... seems like everything does actually. Check this out: http://lifebyexperimentation.com/2013/10/speed-reading/ and this http://fourhourworkweek.com/2009/07/30/speed-reading-and-accelerated-learning/

 

One big reason why I find speed reading incredibly important is there is just too much information out there. Especially when you add the unlimited data that is the Internet -- it seems impossible to get through the daily grind of news, books, magazines, and other written or typed pieces. For me, maximizing whatever brain I got in my skull is imperative -- be it with the ladies or processing new information.

 

Second thing I'm working on is learning the guitar. My goodness -- this has to be one of the most difficult instruments to learn. I remember watching a porno where the guy is just pretending to play before he starts having sex with his hot lady and it got me to realize he probably couldn't learn to play if his life depended on it. Instead of practicing the motor skills that are in my eyes for speed reading -- I'm working on my finger speed, finger strength, and callus development on my fingertips -- all of which are a major PITA. Who knew learning two of the most basic chords (C and G7) and switching between them quickly is actually very difficult?

 

So much mundane to get through before the fantasies become a reality.

 

What have you all been up to?

Uhh,

 

I quit drinking 7 days ago.

A friend I knew from when I was young died just over a month ago from alcohol related problems I only found out a couple of weeks ago.

Not saying I have quit for good but Realised it was time to get a grip.

 

Things are grim at Emsley towers.

No internet for a week.... it was torture.

 

Was it really? Perhaps it would also be the same for me, but alas, I also remember a time without the Internet, and somehow we always found a way to make the best of it.
