I decided to give up caffeine the other day. I haven't been sleeping that well, and my caffeine intake has been steadily increasing over the last few months, so I thought I'd better get it under control. Yesterday was a nightmare! I was feeling really zonked. Today I an feeling pretty good though, so I think I am over the worst. I am interested in measuring two things now - my quality of sleep and my blood pressure. It will be interesting to see if giving up caffeine has any impact.
I've been listening to some great podcasts recently. I've long been a fan of the Economist podcast, and I've recently started to listen to the FT Alphaville podcast. They had an episode in which they talked about podcasts, and they mentioned a podcast called "Serial", which is a true story about a journalist investigating a murder. It is completely absorbing!
Well, despite resolving to blog more, it's been another long period between blog posts. It's not like I haven't been thinking deep thoughts, or pursuing interesting projects. It's that I've been worried that my thoughts have been too nascent to post. It's silly really. I should be using the "Lean Startup" philosophy of releasing early and often. Still, at least there's a lot of room for improvement!
