Planning the Lifehack Email

I'm learning the basics of machine learning and sending out an email daily. I'm building projects to help me professionally and personally, such as organizing my YouTube videos, website, and repos/packages. I'm also thinking of tasks to accomplish on a personal and professional level, and writing essays about my worldview, professional needs, spiritual needs, how to get a good base salary, and how to not hate myself in the process. Join me on this journey as I explore and learn!

In a lot of ways this is aligning in the build vs. buy discussion. Most people buy. Buying is usually better and buying gets you a long way there. In fact, every undertaking lands somewhere on the build-buy spectrum because we don’t burn our computers from sand. Somebody needs to build foundations, frameworks, platforms or whatever you want to call it for us to stand on.

At some point then we step in and build upon those foundations, platforms or frameworks.

Have chapter titles, essay names or whatever ready.
