Instead of reading hundreds manual/book pages, I quickly read 10-15 pages of tutorial or primer. (As you know google is the best search engine to look for such stuff). I keep printed copy of the language syntax reference card handy. (There are many reference cards available over internet. First of all, get familiar with Compiler, compiler option, editor shortcuts or integrated development environment (IDE). To grasp basics of a new language quickly, here are the exercises I use. (1) Display series of numbers (1,2,3,4, 5....etc) in an infinite loop. (2) Fibonacci series, swapping two variables, finding maximum/minimum among a list of numbers. (3) Accepting series of numbers, strings from keyboard and sorting them ascending, descending order. While running the program give value mu = 0. (8) Open a text file and convert it into HTML file.

6 Rules to Work Less and Get More Accomplished - It’s impossible, right? In order to get more done, you need to invest more time. Working ten hour days will make you more accomplished than a colleague that only works seven. Studying three hours a day will get you better grades than the guy who skims through a few chapters before the test. I disagree. Working less and accomplishing more isn’t easy. 1) The 80/20 RuleThe 80/20 rule basically suggests that a small amount of inputs contributes to a much larger amount of outputs. In application, you can’t simply cut everything that doesn’t directly contribute to your bottom line. Cut e-mail time to invest more in larger projects.Say no to people who want commitments that don’t contribute enough value.Spend more studying core concepts and key terms than less important details. 2) Parkinson’s LawParkinson’s Law states that “work will fill the time available for its completion.” Here are some applications: Set a timer for 90 minutes to finish a small project. Work in bursts. The moral?

axioms Contents Contents | rgb Home | Philosophy Home | Axioms | Other Books by rgb: | The Book of Lilith | Axioms is a work that explores the true nature of human knowledge, in particular the fundamental nature of deductive and inductive reasoning. It begins by embracing Hume's Skepticism and Descartes' one ``certain'' thing, and then looking for a way out of the solipsistic hell this leaves one in in terms of ``certain'' knowledge. Indeed, to the extent that philosophy in the past has sought to provide certain answers to virtually any question at all, philosophy itself proves to be bullshit - all philosophical arguments ultimately come back to at least one unprovable premise, usually unstated, and can be refuted by simply asserting ``I don't agree with your premises.'' The way out is to give up the idea of certain knowledge. Axioms by Robert G. Dedication No book is written in a vacuum. Notice Copyright Notice Copyright Robert G. Lulu Press
