"For a long time trying to come up still different ideas from other comics that i respect silly ideas from their still ideas from how they promoted commercialize or whatever and implement that myself. So you're hopefully not seeing the exact same thing every single time nice and i think it is well and there's always that question especially when i'm trying to promote things like m. i. Overstepping here and i think there is a line but i think sometimes it's difficult to tell because maybe i might be different from somebody else but i assume a certain amount of content and then there's just so much out there that going a little bit over i feel like it's better than going a little bit under in some cases because it's easy to get lost a lot of it to seeing so much out there the other thing i like to do is sometimes. I'll throw the different things out of different parts of the day just with the likes. We'll get so a lot of people will throw things up their feelings get hurt if they don't get a ton of likes on well for me. That's just me okay. Now i know that this time of day doesn't work for me or i know that this type of promotion doesn't work for me at this time of day so a lot of times is just testing things out for future shows that are coming down the road sometimes as well man. That's super smart. That's really cool. And that's another example of where you can feel like a lot of people if they don't get a lot of likes they just like. Oh no it didn't work for me but you take it a step further and you're like well that's just not the right time of day and i think the testing is a really good thing to be able to do and learn from as you're promoting as you're posting things that you want in front of people that you can learn a lot from with social media so i think that's great..

Here's your host race Sidney Smith and Augusto pan out with Francis Wade and art gelwicks. Hello and welcome back everybody to productivity cast the weekly show of all things personal productivity. I'm Ray Sidney Smith, and I'm I'm Francis Wade, and I'm Mark LX and welcome gentlemen, and to our listeners today to this episode of productivity cast where we will be discussing a wonderful world of replacing thology in essence. Augusto recently had alcohol it an epiphany about turning an older Microsoft Surface. He had laying around that wasn't quite working and Agusta is going to clarify out for you all what actually happened and then he turned that into a Chrome OS device a Chromebook in essence. And so we thought it would be fun, you know a little techie episode for us to talk. About how he did so and then after that we're going to really discuss the broader discussion of how do we spend time and resources regarding upgrading replacing technology and so and so forth. So I'm going to turn it over to you at gusto in terms of how did you give New Life to your old Microsoft Surface? Well, you know part of part of what I do as a job helping small-business owners and coach in businesses, you know, sometimes understanding what they need technology wise, you know years ago people will go and juice and get a new machine and faster machine and in many cases that was justified. That was how software was but now that software has evolved and a lot of it happened on a browser happened online, We have discovered that we don't need necessarily that much more power as we used to so the problem was the solutions you used to have on the past was get unbuilt home. I know Linux machine and that is fine. And then the except that requires you to be a little bit more geeky even that now the UI on many of those Linux distros are a lot more friendly still require a certain level of geekiness to go and adjust that and consult all the problems. So I happen to have that Microsoft Office that hard drive is dead is a Surface Pro 2 and the hard drive was that it would belong to a client of mine and after we discovered what it was was that and Microsoft done fix them because it's all glued together in a way that basically if they broke more than what they survive Microsoft basically tells you good luck. So client leave the machine with me as a dead machine and it was instead of in the trash on one of the shelves because that's what happened. I was actually looking for a tablet. That I could use to record this another podcast. So I did not need it to Carrie the MacBook with me. That's how this idea start. So the office Microsoft Surface had a MicroSD slot heated on the back. So what I went was I stopped in and the truck door of a spy by super fast MicroSD put it in the back and use that as the main hard drives after I did that then I went to website called Craig's ready ready..

"So that's really cool and by the way before we get into the meat of things about you, your life nominee and everything, how has it been going with pandemic quarantine and the whole environment? What how what emotions if you've been going through? How have you been coping? Are you still working in terms of stand up? Has All been going? In. Terms of standard fortunate. Once in Valley I think that I've been doing this long enough made enough connections. Pretty. Well no longer. In Valley and Mason. Context. Outside. That hasn't really stopped me from working wants to clubs had opened back up. I will in the first comics there on the very first weekend and I was working weekends after. I have no. I have no real concerns there. I've got a great show coming up. We'll talk about later but a great show coming up next weekend optima looking that because that'd be something new but. is I'm a worker. So if I do more stand up, I write scripts as well.

"sidney smith" Discussed on My Gothic Dissertation

"If it isn't clear right now, I'm suggesting that one of the ways Grad school feels particularly Gothic is that the same cycle going from being the one stuck behind the lift master to becoming the lift master oneself also seems to be built in. In his two thousand, fifteen book, the Graduate School, mess what caused it, and how we can fix it. LYNYRD. CASSUTO also notes the cyclical nature of graduate programs. How resistant to change they are because they tend to like doing things how they've always been done. Graduate School is such. A Conservative institution. Academia is very conservative with a small see, but graduate school even more conservative. Than the university at large here, he is talking specifically about the conservatism of the dissertation back in two thousand, twelve on a TV show called higher education today produced at the University of the District of Columbia. The dissertation has we know it. Started in German universities in the early nineteenth century in the United? States. That model at after the civil war where it is continued more or less in the same form for over a century. What this form actually looks like is a proto monograph or the makings of a book dedicated to one specialized subject such as manifest destiny in nineteenth century, American fiction or gingered pathology in modernist literature or monstrosity on the renaissance stage. These are all by the way topics have real dissertations that were published pro quest and online dissertation database in two thousand. Sixteen. Graduate Student Spend Years Researching and writing these tomes, which as I've said, elsewhere, usually clock in around two or three hundred pages. Because they're supposed to be the makings of what Sidney Smith refers to as the tenure book. A former president of the modern. Language. Association and author of the recent manifesto for the humanities. Smith explains that dissertations are part of new PhD's job applications because hiring committees, WANNA see how likely it is that within six years of being hired. These job candidates will be able to get their work published at respected academic university presses in order to receive tenure. It's the old publish or Perish Maxim, which if you think about it is a pretty gothic configuration considering the genres preoccupation with death. This gothic do this or die. Ultimatum has been lurking in our professional lingo for a long time. and. As it turns out a lot of potential job candidates parish before even having the chance to publish. That's because of the high attrition rates for Humanities PhD's that I mentioned in the first. Chapter. Here's Leonard could pseudo talking about what he uncovered about attrition rates in researching his book. The graduate school mess. We are harboring a lot of suctions that structure what it is that we do. That result in these workplace conditions that are that are, it's not just disreputable. They're absurd where we're we're running a workplace where first of all, there's fifty percent attrition. And Out of that fifty percent attrition. Behalf of the fifty leave early, which is fine because graduate school is strong flavor and it's not for everybody leaving earliest fine says Cassuto because it's a learning experience, students can still walk away with a master's degree and go find something else to do more to their taste. But the other half of those who leave their the victims of the story. Twenty twenty, five percent of that. First one hundred. They are leaving in the latter part of their program after years of being. Of of abject suffering in plain sight of their peers and their teachers. Roughly, a quarter of all who enter PhD programs in the humanities, make it to the point of writing into tation only to decide to give up and walk away. After years of abject suffering in plain sight as Kudo says. They're abandoning their creatures, their dissertations because they just can't get them to conform into the acceptable models of the profession and they too are abandoned by the profession itself. The one they've spent years trying to enter. In in our current climate of anxiety about the continued existence of humanities programs, the fear of scholarly perishing intensified, which leads to more conformity more panic and shame directed towards attempts at innovation. More conservatism with a little see as CASSUTO. Graduate students in their faculty advisors are trying to make sure dissertations are setting them up in the best way for one of those few tenure track jobs available. And the result according to Kevin Birmingham is a lot of boring scholarly writing. The biggest problem with the labor market is that it's making people risk averse and scholarship is supposed to be risk averse authorship is. Risky is supposed to be original. It's a toast to. Strike out into, actually it's supposed to do what Victor Frankenstein attempts to do in other words. Pushed. The limits of a discipline and Kevin? Birmingham knows about pushing limits and taking risks. A graduate of the English program at Harvard Birmingham went onto write a brilliant book about James. Joyce called the most dangerous game, which won the prestigious Truman Capote award for literary criticism back in. Two Thousand Sixteen. As. It happens that award is administered by the writer's workshop right here at the University of Iowa, and when Birmingham came to campus, he gave a speech titled. The, great shame of our profession that absolutely shocked and blew everyone away. It was later printed in the chronicle of higher education where it went by rope. He was nice enough to talk to me about a year afterwards, which is when he told me about. Scholarship needing, to be risky. So scaring people out of doing innovative scholarship. He says the Academic Job Market for humanities PhD's is innocence. Defeating the purpose of the profession. What we how basically is a story? Coming of age that is not risky and instead of being risky, what they're doing is gaming. And Gaming. The system is not what the academy should be about and then these. Professors get upset when they find that their students are good at gaming, the system instead of being a risky instead of striking out on their own instead of. Doing intellectually challenging and a surprising things that we want them to do their copying the professors, and so the more we can have. Younger scholars who? Clued become senior scholars who are doing risky work the veteran later, I asked Birmingham if he would elaborate on exactly what he meant by gaming the system, and here's what he said quote. The old fashioned enlightenment ideal of research is that scholars investigate under examined or misunderstood subjects in order to correct our errors or tell us why we've all missed something important. The goal is to serve humanity by better understanding the nature of our world. Gaming, the system is serving your own career by better understanding the whims of our profession. Every profession has its flaws and it's careerism, but the academy is particularly bad at keeping it in check. And while career is is usually answer Larry to the work that careerists do it's foundational in the academy, it determines the work that scholars do. In other words, PhD's are frequently walking away with more expertise in how to get ahead in academia than an actual academic work. More. Focused on pleasing the lift masters out there then on the loftier goal of serving the good of humanity. So. Once again, Grad students are limiting their own potential. Burying their innovative ideas and reassuring themselves that they can get to them. Once they've achieved tenure. A security net, that less than half of them will actually get. In twelve years or so..

"You've written memoirs. You've written novels. What made you sit down and think what I really need to do is is rewrite Turi version of the Greek myths. It was amendment two to. Having dinner with some friends and I can't remember how this subject came up, but Someone was talking about you know. It wasn't an over pretentious dinner party discussion, but it was about the way. Different Cultures explained how the world came to be. We were saying is is Genesis a terrible myth? Is it all about guilt and shame and other better ones, and so started to talk about you know the Greek origin myths, and then went back to to the you know out of chaos, and or an Austin guy on I'm started staring at me and said go on. I said well. You know and then I. Get the next generation was talking. Know about Kronos and and then the birth of Zeus. New Game Wow. How'd you oldest I supervised? Creek myths and a lot of them were very far more diligent to nine and probably better read, but they just they knew the names. Everyone knows the names use in Paulo, and and and so on, but they hadn't joined the dots. And, it's a miraculous thing about Greek mythology that there is a timeline in chronology knits probably be reverse engineered by. He's been homer and later poets obviously, but nonetheless it has a shape a beginning in the end, which other mythic structures don't seem to have and the so deepen. To use such a Cliche, but I can't avoid in the DNA of our own culture and art that it's kind of part of who we are so. They encouraged me really and a lot of people said you got. You could retell those stories, and at first I thought I'd do a stage show, and then I started writing it and realize what pleasure it was to to research. Go back to some of the sources the time remember burn and find out and fill in the gaps in my knowledge that I started writing. Did that Mobile Library play a part in your early reading of the Greek myth says well, yes, it did and firmly enough it was American, mythologised, who were the biggest infants so me when I was young apart from Robert Graves who was hugely influential. Who wrote a magnificent two volume edition of agreements, but when I was younger and too young, for Robert Graves, it was <unk>, Hamilton and Bernadette, Flynn and bull finch copy of Dolphins, which is American I think. Isn't it the both with? And Anthony Hoffman whom I remember well reading those when I was very young, had big illustrated version of Nathaniel. Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales and these were all wonderful retailing children, and there was a pretty sure Roger Lance Lynn Green. Bread was a boy and at school, because I loved classics at school from a very early age, we were taught latching from age of seven of. School and and I did. It only because I think it did so badly it everything else. That I was put onto ancient Greek quite young, too. I was eight or nine when I started engine. Great which I love.

"I want to go to the gym. The processes a I get up. I get dressed into gym clothes. I know got my my. My struck should is already pre-decided which means you dunk. Tabah Across the nation issue. Because you're not trying to make the decision do I have to? It's like I'm going to the gym in the morning. Which means you'll die is optimized to do that because you reducing that procrastination that friction is you've highlighted at Mike's a lot easier to actually have a part of your process because then it becomes a regular thing and it builds into a pattern of behavior. Which gives you the benefit. Then once she actually did you start getting the intrinsic motivation of building to it. Once you actually get to the journalists like. I don't really feel like today but I'm ready. Yes I'LL STOP NAJI. Staw you actually start getting the motivation. You get the enjoyment or the AL aspect of it to get to. The next stage was actually making sure you remove as much decision making out of the whole prices. Because obviously you're moving load on your working memory because from all the research of people saying that by removing not amount of decision-making before you have to do something it just makes prices lot easier than the actual don't feel as fatigued because you actually leaving that you could say that that will full the next stage wing actually do need that energy to make a big decision you need to actually actively Sadan actually make a decision of which way you gotta use an as you said you you optimizing your behavior in optimizing your resources to actually use it for the right purpose and actually focusing on the lights area you bring up a really interesting Piece of of science that we we were starting to understand that passion is something that develops out of of hard work That we don't start with passion. We actually developed passion and so most people think that all of a sudden you know you're GonNa you're GonNa find your life purpose or you're gonNA find a passion for running and then you're going to go by all the gym clothes and start you know running every day and so and so forth. No if you believe that running something that you want to do you will develop a passion after you start actually getting over the initial hurdle of all of the drudgery. It takes to start running as a runner. I know that when I first started running there was all of this drudgery associated with. It's tough it's not easy to go run every day. You're putting your pounding the pavement and putting your body through A good bit of Of Work It wasn't until actually several years later that I found myself kind of in that stride Pun intended. That I I was I was actually passionate about running because I had been running I was doing it and I was getting good at it And so many years later now I've been running for most of my life now. I feel passionate about running because I'm a runner And so Folks who who think about if they want to be passionate about being Healthy Healthy eating having good nutrition. I'm having a good Physical fitness regimen. Those kinds of things. Don't think that you're going to find passion and then do the work you do the work and you get the passion so So don't don't think that you have to be passionate about something in order to start something I can't imagine anyone who is passionate about knitting Until they're actually knitting just those just a reality factor here that I think a lot of people believe that they have to have some kind of out. enlightenment. That comes to them about what they should be doing. And then all of a sudden that enlightenment is going to be that thing that motivates them and reality motivation is based on hardship but of Asians based on challenge and then our social structure. So we will. We will do something because it is challenging to us not inverse. We won't do something because it's easy I think that's There there are obviously processes in place We take the well worn path and those kinds of things but when it comes to the things we are thoughtfully trying to do we will do them because of the challenge associated with it That is the right amount of challenges. A goldilocks zone of challenge. A we will do things because they are the right amount of challenge to us that we. We know that it's a stretch. We know that we can achieve it. you know. We have a good chance of achieving it and that it will be tough and it's actually that kind of activity that gets us to to a want to do something It's it's the It's kind of like a reverse psychology Rifi. Tell You oh you can't have this piece of candy. Then you really want this piece of candy. Yeah That's actually how we always operate. We just don't think about it that way but the moment we start to think about how to be motivated to do things. I'm it's because something as mundane something is too easy That it creates boredom and we know that variability and and stretching ourselves in terms of goals on is how we actually get motivated so I again. It just goes back to understanding the underlying science behind some of these things that people tend to get caught up in Thinking about the The conventional wisdom of something as opposed to the The reality of it. Which is if you're trying to do something. Just add a little bit of game too it out a little bit of fun to it by saying. I'm going to challenge myself too I instead of Instead of doing this very boring exercise at work This project that that takes me Sake thirty minutes. I'm going to try to do it in twenty five minutes today right and you're making it more difficult by by challenging yourself to get it done faster but by doing so you've actually increased the variability with this because it's not the way it normally is and you've increase the challenges associated with it and that of course Begets greater motivation. You then get into the activity faster you perform at a higher level and you can then start to optimize because now you can say well if I can do this report twenty five minutes could I do it in twenty right and so now you've taken thirty minutes of your day and shrunken activities. Twenty and what do you do with other ten minutes? Now is really important and key. Do you Footer. It away. Do just stare at the ceiling. Offer that extra ten minutes. Do you use that as an opportunity to do some politicking as you're going to use that time to socialize with with your co workers And potentially Be Better like among your Your your co workers. Are you gonNA use that time to start a side project at the office of? That's going to be useful to you. in your next Performance Review. They're all of these ways in which you can utilize a getting better and getting more done By by utilizing the right ways of thinking about how to get more done and using challenged in motivation in that a To to optimize the the aspect about keep making it interesting and biking challenge sizing to sites flow in all these new boats with when it comes to mind can't challenging and also getting a reward is as you saw doing and might variation kicks in and you get the benefit of doing something Beto Foster. You actually get the dog for me. Which helps drive the motivation and enjoyment? I ended the novelty of being. It's like a different list is like fossil making interesting at engage -cation to it keeps you focused in a lot more engaged with what you're doing and it means that you you get more results out of it because of just changing factors of it to keep you engaged in interested in trying to make make an improvement. I'm it's not an obvious. Improvement goal is into The goal is the end result is to become Becerra. False immoral is the actual application is to make it fun by making it fun or interesting it automatically becomes veteran false on all towards. It's it's almost like an endless process like you're getting the getting better results by by using that solely so there's a lot of really interesting you could say touch points with was a lot of the work in the research will have done in the. I think we can. We can probably have another pod costs episode talking about some more specifics. But it's it's been trying to tastic to to actually get somebody talk. Get some insights on.
