📚 3 Good Articles for You


The science of motivation: how to get and stay motivated
by Dr. Hannah Rose (6min)
When your motivation vanishes, what can you do to get it back? Many of us will buy an inspirational book or watch motivational videos, thinking this will help us get our mojo back. But these tricks are unlikely to be successful. In reality, motivation only starts to build again once we have taken the first steps and gained some momentum in our task.

Concept maps — the hidden gem of personal knowledge management
by Rasmus Ursem (8min)
In the world of personal knowledge management (PKM), there is an intense focus on note-taking, but hardly any focus on the structural organization of notes or how they relate to each other. Some tools have features for creating structure in your notes, but most tools do a rather poor job. The aim of this article is to convince you that concept mapping is the method you, as a serious PKM enthusiast, should master to structure your second brain.

The Psychological Mind Tricks That Actually Work
by Jeff Somers (6min)
Despite our illusions of independence and control, it’s possible to manipulate people using a variety of psychological tricks—heck, that’s what the entire advertising and marketing industry is built on. So it stands to reason that a little light mind control could make things go your way a bit more often. When you dig into supposed psychological tricks, however, you often get mired in a lot of pseudo-science and dubious claims. But while it’s true that you’re not going to be controlling minds and hypnotizing people into doing your bidding any time soon, there are psychological tricks that do really work—and that are backed by scientific evidence.
