Dear Friend and Fellow Antinetter,
Believe it or not, I have ADHD.
Even more crazy is the fact that I don't take any medication for it.
I use a few tools which helps me focus. One of which is a cube timer I put on my desk. I use it to time myself and read in 60-minute blocks. Amazon link
The other tool I use is writing by hand.
I don't know what it is, but writing by hand shuts off my distracted mind.
I'm able to focus on the task at hand and complete it.
There's no quitting when you're in the middle of developing a thought using pen and paper. You can't quit until you've finished developing the thought. How do you do this? You finish by letting your thought disentangle itself when it passes through your fingertips.
There's some great literature out there backing the effectiveness of writing by hand over typing.
The most popular one is a paper called The Pen is Mightier Than the Keyboard. Here's a link to it: link
There's some other fantastic scientific research backing the power of writing by hand as well. I'll save that for the book. I summarize the research nicely, so that you don't have to read through all that academic jargon-talk!
Anyway, I wanted to share a video with you I uploaded recently.
It's with a fellow Antinetter named Dele. I call him Dele The Man!
This video is good if you're new to the Antinet realm. You can see how other Antinetters are building out their own system using innovative personalizations. One personalization Dele uses is that of colored pens.
I've seen other Antinetters do such as well.
It's awesome seeing new personalizations and customizations done to the system.
Nowhere else do I see people actually growing and evolving the system that Niklas Luhmann helped popularize (note: Luhmann wasn't the only one to use a paper thinking machine like the Antinet! That, too, will be covered in the book).
Anyway, after all that damn pre-amble, here's an actual link to the video:
Hope you enjoy it.
Warm regards and as always,
Stay crispy, my friends.
