There’s no ladder to climb in life/career | Single Source of Truth | and more

3 points — Recommendation/Idea/Resource


Key point: “Work-life is about Cooperation, not competition”. Struggling in your career to reach the top? Then you need a paradigm shift. I highly recommend the following article for you to read.

Busting the career ladder myth |
See what happens when we free ourselves from trying to reach the top of the ladder and instead carve our own paths as a career river flowing toward our ultimate objective: the ocean.


Have a “Single Source of Truth” (SSOT) app to rely on taking every decision. All your relevant data to your life goal, career goal must be residing inside this app (not distributed across different apps). It may be a task manager or note-taking app or even a physical notebook. Create it, edit it, and review it often. This will keep you in line as days go by and keep you clear and out of unwanted confusion in the process of decision-making.

Stay tuned to know more about this and how to use it in your personal productivity system.

Key point: What’s your SSOT?


Raycast is a better alternative to Alfred. Raycast like Alfred replaces Mac’s ‘Spotlight’ ability to a higher standard. You could do more things quicker with Raycast. Check it out if you use Mac.

Raycast for Mac. Is this Spotlight replacement better than Alfred?

Bonus (another knowledge management tool)

I’ve come across this tool (like RoamResearch, Obsidian, and Logseq)

Dendron is a note-taking tool that helps technical teams organize and reference any amount of information.

I haven’t tested it. It is more relevant for programmers and developers. But I am sharing it here so anyone might find it useful. Foam is another editor and agora editor so something is under development. But I am not recommending any new PKM (personal knowledge management) tool for anyone who wants to start.

See you until the next issue 👋 .
