My resolution for 2014
It's 2014 and I just want to do my resolutions for 2014. Below is what I want to do this year.
1. Sleep 8 hours per day.
I have cut my sleeping hour for entertainment purpose like browsing webs or keeping up with news. However the less I sleep, the more I find myself alertness during working our. Moreover, the value I gain from doing entertainments was not much. Therefore this year, I want to spend more time in bed to let myself follow dreams I haven't had.
2. Read more books
Recently I start to read more books than I've read for my whole life up to now. Last year, I finished:
- The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
- Thinking, fast and slow
- How to use your mind
- Coders at work
- List Hackers
- Learn you a Haskell for Great Good
- Money machine
- What I wish I knew when I was 20
- Moonwalking with Einstein
- Signal and Noise (Nate Silver)
- The architecture of open source applications
Some books I started but didn't have courage to finish (due to its information density)
- Advice to young men
- Hacker's delight
- An inquiry into the Nature of Wealth
- High performance Mysql
Look back against my 2013's reading, I somehow feel that I made a good progress. In 2014, my goal is to read more books than I read in 2013. And since the start of this year I finished 2 books:
- How to get control of your time and your life (Alan Lakein)
- Steve Jobs
It was really a good start and I hope and I would be able to keep this pace this year!
3. Write more posts
I didn't write much because my incompetence to manage my time and also because I'm lazy. So my resolution for this year is to write more and more blog post. I would want to write about books and papers I read.
Just 3 things for this year
