This Week I Learned - 2017 Week 11

Last week post or you can read through the whole series.

Readjust and swapping some my morning and night rituals. I've managed to clear of daily to-do items in a more manageable and less stressful manner. It's amazing that a small change can have a significant impact on your daily life.

#1 What is the best time to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner? McLaren's F1 driver diet plan provides some good reference plan. Breakfast starts at 7 am, follow by lunch at 12:30 pm, and lastly dinner at 6:30pm. Interestingly bedtime is around 10pm, seems way too early. However the total calories is quite high, roughly 2800kcal. Best if you check your daily needed calories.

While we're on calories counting. Someone managed to lose 45kg in 6 months (via HN). Be warned, his approach is quite drastic and not suitable for everyone. Similar posts (here and here) in HN.

#2 Dynamic Dispatch and Jump Table. I've been stuck with a problem of implementing console application in C++. Countless hours of searching and reading and it finally occurred to me that I was googling for the wrong keywords. Unfortunately, my limited knowledge with C++ hamper the progress of the project. Some discussions with two young chaps did open up possible solutions on how to implement Jump Table in C++. Will explore further once everything have been settled down.

#2 Learned optimism as presented by Reginald “raganwald” Braithwaite. Good to read slide and watch the presentation together. The audio quality is kind of lacking. To be more optimistic, use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to change the way how you explain things to yourself.


#3 Cultural fit for a candidate in a company. The ironic, bitterness, and sarcasm. The comment by sokoloff is spot on. It should be a mutual process, both the candidate and the company. And it should be the responsibility and challenge for the management rather than those reluctant employees. Interestingly, there is only three interview questions to assess whether a candidate is suitable for the job.
