    1. have to remember what the remote and branch are that I'm using

      This is basically because under the hood, subtree uses branches to track entirely unrelated histories with an offset (prefix). This is the same as creating a new branch whose first commit (trunk?) is a clone of an entirely different remote, and then merging that branch into the main branch using a git subtree merge strategy with an offset=prefix.

      This is at least git-like in the background but for some reason, the branches aren't uniquely ID'd like git can do with remote branches vs regular branches.

    2. Git's subtree merge strategy

      This is where you merge but specify how to line the trees up using a prefix.

    3. unpushed submod commits

      If you edit the submodule yourself in the main repo

    4. Can't use different submodules/commits per main project branch

      Branches of the main repo can't refer to different commits?

    1. I find incremental progress most challenging because it highlights how tiny progression usually is when we are learning properly. I want results Now and feel the overwhelming pressure to produce for work. And, so far I've gotten incredibly good at producing something passable in the least amount of time right before the deadline. So, forcing myself to make tiny stepping stones toward more concrete learning, despite it being ultimately more helpful and healthy than the burnout-grind cycle I've adopted, feels incredibly tedious.

    2. use of space repetition to maintain the knowledge stored within the external system inside the learner's mind

      This is critical! A Second Brain is not a storehouse, it's a tool that should support our First Brain in holding onto as much information as possible.

    3. information that we can easily assimilate

      A bias towards easier to slot in information is not bad, as the progress we make can be motivational to tackle areas we feel less strong in. However, this bias can also lead to distractive tendencies if the information we prioritize isn't as important. Interest in a subject is valuable and shouldn't be minimized, but recognizing when something is a distraction, and confronting the fears and anxieties that are probably leading to that distraction - is critical.

    4. article from piotr wozniak called the minimum definition of incremental reading

      3) Cloze Deletions - Critical Thinking and Identification

      4) Priority Queue - Global thinking

      5) Spaced Repetition - Temporal Thinking, Reinforcement

    1. Well thanks, Julien, for this totally clickbait titled video... But also for some surprisingly cogent insight.

      In exploring the intricacies of anxiety and the deeply rooted patterns of self-preservation and conformity, it becomes evident how closely linked our fear of mortality and fear of venturing beyond our familiar boundaries truly are - and it's liberating to recognize this connection. Understanding that our need to avoid being an outcast is fundamentally tied to our survival sheds light on why even minor deviations from norms can trigger an overwhelming sense of peril. It's quite fascinating to find such remarkably coherent insights amidst the complexities of these emotions.

    2. three lives that people live

      Public - Private - Secret

    3. face, fears, bluff

      "face fear's bluff" - It's just a bluff, though it will feel incredibly real

    4. Action, trigger, release, repeat

      Identify action that causes you to feel "triggered", then intentionally release the tension you just felt, and think of it like a process - the more you identify, feel, and let go, the easier it gets.

    5. trauma depends on the person, the perspective they have at the time

      Trauma is defined by a fear of death or consequences that "exceed the situation" (see another annotation)

    1. References: Explanations that clarify and illuminate a particular topic. Geared towards understanding.

      What is a reference vs an explanation, especially if References' description literally starts with "it's an Explanation"??

    1. To make the benefits of action feel bigger and more real: 1. Visualize how great it will be to get it done 2. Pre-Commit, Publicly 3. Confront the downside of inaction

      To make costs of action feel smaller: 1. Identify the first step 2. Tie the first step to a treat 3. Remove the hidden blockage (confront the unspoken)

    1. workflow hump

      Same as the valley of disappointment - putting in effort to get good enough at something to actually see returns.

    1. one should never use the arrow keys in Vim, so that's one reason it's important to have both insert and append

      This is the critical point: I suppose the Vim paradigm tries to eliminate cursor navigation entirely, hence the need for both.
