My dad led an organization of over 300,000 employees.
When I took on my biggest marketing & events team to date (35 employees) I asked him how the *heck* he did it. Here's what he said and what helped me every day. 🧵

Working on a problem reduces the fear of it.— James Clear (@JamesClear) August 30, 2020
It\u2019s hard to fear a problem when you are making progress on it\u2014even if progress is imperfect and slow.
Action relieves anxiety.
We often avoid taking action because we think "I need to learn more," but the best way to learn is often by taking action.— James Clear (@JamesClear) September 23, 2020
What you call chaos I call spontaneity.
A regimented life is like a heartbeat that's non-chaotic; it's a system that’s too ordered. It doesn't have any life to it. And real life has lots of ups and downs, some of them very extreme.
I over-plan, but planning is pretty useless. What tends to dominant life are a small number of Black Swan events in both directions, positive and negative.
Expose yourself to asymmetric upside and lots of good options: things that can become massively important for you.
And you want to avoid the asymmetric downside: anything that can end the game, whether it's through financial ruin, or reputational ruin, or physical ruin.
That requires a certain amount of chaos and spontaneity.
If nothing else, 2020 taught the power of optionality.
We think about planning as linear and controlled, but that's not how the world around us works anymore.
The world is dominated by nonlinearities, so understanding options value is far more important.

Once, Muruga lost to Ganesha in a contest on divine fruit; he left Kailasha and came here in anger.
Shiva tried to pacify him by saying that he (Muruga) himself was the divine fruit (pazaham nee). So the place became Palani.
Meanwhile, Maharishi Agastya asked his disciple, Idumban, to move the hills of Sivagiri and Shaktigiri further South. Idumban bore the hills slung across his shoulders, in the form of a kavadi one on either side. When he was tired, he placed the kavadi near Palani to take rest.
Sri Muruga tested him by making the hills so heavy that Idumban could not lift them. When he challenged Muruga, he was killed in the battle. Muruga restored his life again and make him dwarapalaka of the hill. Also, he promised to bless all who came bearing a kavadi here.
The murti was made of navapashanam by Siddha Bogar. Milk and panchamrita abhishekam is believed to extract medicines from it.
The panchamritham offered here is very famous. It is a combination of 5 natural substances-banana, jaggery, cow ghee, honey and cardamom.
There are many theories regarding the creation of the Universe, such as the Big Bang theory, the Proto-universe theory, the Inflationary theory, the Bubble Universe theory, etc.
Out of these the Big Bang theory is most widely accepted by the scientific community (still s bit controversial). According to this theory, the big bang occurred almost 13.8 billion years ago and the Universe came into existence.
In a Hindu Scripture, the ‘Chandogyupanishad’, it is said that the Supreme God (Parameshwar) made a sankalp (resolve) ‘I am one, I will manifest in several forms’, and the Universe was created. (Tat Tvam Asi).
The calculation of the number of years since the creation of the Universe as well as the number of years till the dissolution of the Universe has been done by the Rishis in India. Rishi Vasishtha has mentioned that the creation of the Universe happened 34.5 billion years ago.
The creation of the Universe happened on the Hindu Calendar Date (tithi) of Chaitra Shukla Pratipada. Thus, the Hindu calendar begins on the sunrise of this tithi. This date usually falls on any day from late March to mid-April on the Gregorian calendar.

0. Coder != engineer
Coders focus just on writing code to make something work. Engineers take a much wider view, focusing on both the problem and every aspect of the solution. 🤓
1. “Import lib”
It's not wise to waste time building tools or libraries if there’s already something that does the same job! Wherever possible, extend existing libraries and contribute back to the community. 💁♀️
2. With great power comes greater responsibility
Every choice we make on our platform and every feature we build stands up to a responsibility — helping people make more data-driven decisions and bring about real change for millions of people. 💪
3. Fail fast and keep learning
Failing fast is about doing lots of fast iterations and learning from each, rather than getting stuck on one solution or decision. 👊
1. What type of Security you use in your Home Network?
2. What you know about global information Security policy or Information Security
policy in the organisation / Does your organisation have a security policy ?
say yes – then make sure you have read it because they might ask you leading
question from there.
3. Differentiate between Vulnerability, Threat and Risk and give any real life analogy?
4. How you Secure you Windows and Linux Server ?
5. What is the difference between filter and blocked ports ?
6. What ports does Ping uses ?
7. Why it is important to monitor DNS ?
8. What is the difference between MD5 , SHA1 and AES ?
9. If you have to store a password in the database how will you store it ?
10. What is a salt in Security?
In this thread we will cover the different meanings behind D5 and what the near term might have in store for us.
D5 Multiple Meanings & Outlook:
1. Events that took place on 5th Dec 2018
2. Date of DNI Report regarding unmaski*g of Gen. Flynn.
3. CF Investigation re: Crim*s Against Humanity
4. D5 Forecast 432Hz (Ongoing Investigation re: Election Frau*)
1. Lets warm up with 2 Year Delta Drop 2549:
Role of Huber (as portrayed by 'Q')? What are the odds that Huber would be scheduled to testify re: Clint*n Foundation on D5? What are the odds GHWB passes away and the State Funeral date is on D5? What other interviews and
investigations were wiped clean (postponed) given a STATE FUNERAL takes up media coverage for a week? Why does the FAKE NEWS media [largest in the world] continually attack 'Q'? Why is the WASH POST leading the attack? Think ABC agency. When you are awake you can SEE CLEARLY.
My take: DS tried to cover up Huber BOOM via Funeral Date, but they didn’t realise D5 meant something else…👇
1. GoodReads + Sci-Hub
Sci-Hub is proving to be an amazing resource for thousands of budding researchers who don’t have the means to pay for access to publications. Make a better one with great recommendations, search and importantly — crowd sourced annotations!
2. Better Google Apps Script
GAS is a great way to manipulate various Gmail, Sheets and Docs data but it’s a pain to use and debug. Make this 10X easier. The user of your product should be able to start writing Python to manipulate Google Sheets within seconds.
3. Quantify Engineering Productivity
Quantifying productivity is an incredibly important and underrated problem. One bad metric for software is TLOC. Assuredly we can do better! There are millions of pull requests online. Millions of comments. So much to train on.
4. git deploy gdocs
Current workflow: write text, get feedback, copy text, paste text in codebase, deploy text. That’s broken. Have one source of record in the original document. Using your framework, I should be able to instantly link a Google Doc to a static page.
Since the switch to 280 characters a year ago, we've seen an increase in people writing out full words and phrases.
