Things never happen at the speed we want. It’s either too fast and we feel overwhelmed or too slow and we feel anxious. When I am faced with the latter my way to deal with it is to put things in their place. Preparing what I can for when it’s needed.

This can be cleaning up shared folders, organising the information we, the Lisbon Collective, have on Notion1, getting in touch with people who may be useful further down the road. Anything, really.

The rules are simple.

  1. None of these things should be a waste of time
  2. Every change should simplify
  3. Information should be easy to find by others unfamiliar with the project

By itself, this is my way to avoid anxiety.

Your tools for this week

Character AI let’s you create a character and chat with them. Feels a bit like an interface between us and any other large language model with a specific character creation prompt. Yet the idea is quite interesting. Imagine building a persona, or a description of a public, and having the chance to ask them questions. It’s a way to see how much the AI Character will match your expectation and then test it out in the real world.

Nekton AI allows you to automate your day-to-day tasks with AI. I haven’t tested this one yet, but I am a big fan of any app that automates the boring stuff. My go-to tools for that are Node-RED, that runs on my own server, and Keyboard Maestro for tasks that only need to run on my laptop.
