Reflection

As a node operator, my understanding of Bitcoin has evolved significantly. A theoretical framework has been transformed into lived, practical experience. I monitor the Mempool to check on my Lightning channel status. I engage with other node operators to create liquidity swaps. I scroll through 1ML and Amboss to find other Lightning peers. I collect sats for routing payments. It is a vivid demonstration of my previous notion; that Bitcoin, and by extension its timechain, may just be the the final word on financial freedom.

Friday Reflections, Volume XI
May 21, 2021
Each post that I write helps to develop my mindset, even if they are a bit of a rabble sometimes. But I am thinking better. I am building better. And it is there for everyone to see.

Nearly everything is automated. Lead generation. Financial reporting. Report formatting. Client liaison. It has all become part of a smooth software process.

And what of these fancy new topics? Well, Monday Mindset kick starts the week with some psychological insights, expressed via my life experience. Wednesday Macro sharpens my understanding; I explore the world by writing about it. Friday Musings will be some wacky roundup of the week.
Celebrating Rhythm
April 6, 2021
So what to do? Bring a little rhythm into your life! For me, it ain't about the big things. I don't mean meeting regularly with friends, playing 5-a-side etc. If anything, that can add to the stress. I hate having other commitments when I have no rhythm.
Release Your Attention
March 22, 2021
You want the spaces you inhabit to recharge you. Not to provide a low hum of anxiety. By releasing your attention from minor items, you can refocus on those activities that you really enjoy. For me, that is time with my gang, my websites, my writing and my guitars.
