Think of things that you can automate in your life.
These seemingly mundane and menial tasks take a lot of time and headspace.
For example, whenever I publish an article on Medium or Post content on Instagram, to get more engagement I have to publish them on all platforms one by one. …
This week we will talk about an interesting exercise that every student of Stanford University’s design program has to go through.
The year has ended and now is the season of resolutions, goals, planning, and fresh starts.
Every year I make plans or resolutions at the start of the year and never follow through with them. This year I am determined to change that. So I went on a great google search on tips and tricks on new year resolution, life goals, and planning in general and found this really great exercise/plan named Odessey Plan.

This week we will talk about a website to discover what people are asking about, a blog on muscle building, and an online service to get high-quality icons & generate color schemes.
Answer the public is a great tool for anyone doing market or customer research.
It taps into google searches (approx 3 billion every day)and cranks out useful questions people are asking around a keyword.
It generates the output in a mind map type visual, which is very easy to digest. It’s a goldmine of customer insights that you can use to create your next product or service.
This week I am continuing with my YouTube recommendation series and will talk about some must-watch YouTube videos on the topic of International Affairs.
All my recommendations are from VOX and Johnny Harris. VOX is a media outlet that apart from hard-hitting journalism, makes really great content on YouTube. You might have seen their Explained series on Netflix. Johnny Harris is an independent content creator who has made some amazing videos for VOX in the past, some of which I am going to recommend here.
Remember the time when there was a major crisis in Syria and Iraq due to…
This week we are changing up a little bit. Instead of sharing interesting websites, products, or tools, I am going to talk about some really interesting YouTube channels focusing on historical events and topics.
I consider myself a bit of a history nerd. If I had to pick a new career, I would love to be a historian. I guess other than me, only YouTube knows this about me, and based on my watching habits, it recommended a video on Mongols, which had a really good-looking thumbnail. …
In today’s hyper-connected world one thing that you can’t escape is the News.
With hundreds of 24x7 NEWS channels and media outlets trying to compete for your attention with breaking news coming every few minutes this information overload has become a major source of anxiety.
Just in time reporting and journalism although have some advantages, on the other side it does not give reporters and journalists enough time to research and fact check and can become a source of fake or inaccurate news.
If you feel the same and need to go on a quality news diet then I suggest…
This week, we are going to talk about some useful articles and blogs every developer should read.
A developer's job is tough. It's not always glamourous.
Not every developer is a born genius like Mark Zuckerberg in the movie The Social Network, who can code an app overnight.
A developer deals with complex problems day in and day out. Sometimes you get stuck on a problem for days and feel demotivated. You often ask yourself, “Am I good enough?”
This week we are going to talk about Blogs.
In the era of Tiktok and reducing attention span the long-form blogs and articles are struggling.
Keeping your readers interested and not lose focus, in a 500–1000 word long blog is an art and we all need to appreciate the writers who are good at this.
Below is a list of Blogs that I feel everyone should read. Topics span from life advice to productivity to self-development. Everyone will find some value in it.
This week we are going to talk about a website to read articles distraction-free and a website that helps you learn probability.
Most of the real estate on news/media outlet websites are occupied by advertisements (a lot of click baits). On top of it, they don’t even allow adblocker.
For me, all these advertisements and links to other articles on the page are very distracting. I end up hopping from one article to the other without finishing the article I started. If you do the same, then you should check out Outline.
It’s a free service for reading and annotating…
In light of this latest debate on data privacy, I went on a search to figure out how much data do I share with Facebook, and based on that how much does Facebook actually know about me. On my quest, I found ethi.
Ethi helps users understand & uncover what Facebook really knows about them. …
