• My 2021 Productivity Workflow May 12, 2021

    This post is the updated version of the one I wrote in 2019. Instead of changing the previous one, I decided to create an updated version based on that. From time to time, I receive questions about my productivity workflow and I think it will be useful to have it written down somewhere. This post will describe how I’m dealing with it in 2021. Tool As you probably know, I work for Doist for some time now, and I’m a Todoist user since 2007, so the my tool of choice is quite obvious.

  • Review of The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, #3) May 6, 2021

    Book: The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, #3) by Stephen King. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Ouvi esse livro em Português (e provavelmente farei o mesmo para todos os próximos). Eu tenho todos os livros físicos mas preferi procurar um audiobook para facilitar a minha “leitura”. Assim como o livro 2, esse me surpreendeu bastante (talvez porque eu gostei pouco do primeiro). Agora eu estou começando a me envolver com a história e ficar curioso com o mundo da Torre Negra.

  • My knowledge base bootstrap May 1, 2021

    Note-taking is my current obsession, so it’s time to talk about it here. 😃 How it started Last year I was talking to my friend Diego Eis about his note-taking workflow. I knew he was doing that for a long time but I couldn’t get the advantages of doing this. He described his workflow but I was still not convinced it would be useful for me at the time. When January came, I saw a post by Caffo talking about Roam Research and how he was using it to build his blog.

  • Review of The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2) Apr 21, 2021

    Book: The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2) by Stephen King. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. What a surprise! I enjoyed listening to this book. I have the whole series of books (printed version) here and decided to listen to the first one some years ago. I was not very impressed by it and decided to put the who series aside for some time. Last month I decided to give the second book a shot.

  • Review of The Life‑Changing Magic of Tidying Up Apr 11, 2021

    Book: The Life‑Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I like the book and there are very few things I disagree with the author. I think it’s too much to talk to objects, but I understand where this is coming from. In my opinion, just holding the object is enough, even if you don’t talk to them. I don’t think it’s a good idea to remove all objects from your bad/purse every day.

  • Opinião: Produtos e contratações globais Mar 20, 2021

    Tudo começou com uma discussão no grupo off-topic do Ruby Brasil. Alguém compartilhou a seguinte imagem: Encontrei o post original no Linkedin Esse post não é uma resposta direta ao Bruno Pereira, mas sim estendendo a discussão que começamos no grupo do Telegram. Um dos argumentos usados lá é que as empresas precisam entender que esse é um mercado global e ligar com isso tentando fazer as coisas ficarem locais gera várias frustrações.

  • Password managers Mar 2, 2021

    After many years using LastPass, I decided to make the switch to 1Password. I’m going to describe here why I did this and how was my process to choose. LastPass I’m using LastPass for many years now. A lot of people say that LastPass is not a good password manager, it has bugs, it’s ugly, it has too many trackers, yada, yada, yada. I was always the guy who said: “Yeah, it works for me”.

  • 2020 Year in Review Feb 23, 2021

    Brace yourselves, like any other stats post, this one will be HUGE If you’re following my blog, you know that I sometimes mentioned things were too hard and I couldn’t sit down and write. Looking back now, I have a good laugh for my past self. ☺️ I can say for sure that 2020 was a complicated year and a lot of things change in my life. The biggest change is that I’m now a father of twins.

  • Falando sobre a pirataria Feb 17, 2021

    Há alguns dias atrás, um amigo meu compartilhou um texto sobre pirataria no twitter. O texto possui o tema “Precisamos falar sobre a pirataria” e pode ser visto aqui. O texto é bem leve ao falar do assunto e mostra a visão da autora e sua própria experiência com a pirataria. Se eu fosse resumir o texto em uma frase (sim, é o meu entendimento sobre ele), seria: Todo mundo já usou pirataria de uma forma ou de outra quando não tinha dinheiro o suficiente para pagar por um determinado material.

  • Thoughts on group chats Feb 13, 2021

    I’m a big fan of group chats. The current app I use the most for group chats (and direct messages as well) is Telegram. I even created some group chats for topics I like (mechanical keyboards, note taking and productivity, Books and audiobooks, Money and investing, etc.). I take group chats (and communities) more seriously than I should and I make sure chats are moderated and following their topic, otherwise, it wouldn’t make any sense to have chats split by topic.
