1) For one thing, I never get around to finishing things I started.

ModernLifeIsRubbish has obtained an up-to-date top 10 list of currently used passwords online.
I’m willing to bet that you’ve used one or more of these passwords online before. I know that I have used ‘qwerty’ on more than one occasion for throw-away accounts or for shady sites that I fear I may be in danger of personal information theft.
Just one more note, the list was compiled across the pond, so obviously, there are going to be different numbers if we were to take a poll here in the states. For example, our favorite team probably wouldnt include Liverpool

So I came across this awesome online calculator that lets you ‘get your priorities straight’, as my ex girlfriend would often tell me to do.
Its marketed off as a financial calculator, but whats great is that you can use it for anything that you need to plot.
Lets take the example I used to check it out. When people ask me something like ‘What’s your favorite soda?’, I just usually say I dont have a favorite. Lets say i actually want to see what soda i really do prefer over all the others. Thats where this calculator comes into play.
All I have to do it give it a list of all the items I want prioritized. In this case, Root beer, Doctor Peeper, Splite, Sierra Myst, Cherry Cook, and Pipse.
After i enter all my choices, up to 15, it then proceeds to ask me which I prefer over another. In other words, a complete boolean approach to the entire situation.
Depending on how many items are put in, The Prioritizer will keep asking questions until every item has been compared to every other item. In my case above, it had 2 of the above screens i had to fill out (on 2 pages).
Once you have completed the comparisons, you get a result page with a ranking of all your comparisons on it, showing you what is most important to you.
For my example above, It shows me that Root beer is the number one position on my favorites, while Doctor Peeper is the least favorite.
Like I said above, this was intentionally intended as a financial calculator, so you could of course use it to prioritize financial situations like home mortgage payments, car payments, and the what not….. but wheres the fun in not being able to decide what color to dye your cat?
Ive always been interested in speed reading…. i just never knew exactly how. I knew there were a few tricks to use, like you just simply cant say the words in your head if you wanna go fast. It just wont work.
Ive never really tried to look up techniques for speed reading, but i did just happen to come across this guy’s site. He seems to know his stuff and has some tips about it. Its worth a nice slow read anyways
