I still use resolutions. Well, less of a resolution and more of a goal I set for myself who knows when. My only goal

The theme system was also a system of land division established under Byzantine Emperor Heraclius, basically an early feudalism designed to tie the livelihoods of the army to the land they were defending

Here I was expecting him to be writing a journal about the Theme system in the byzantine empire where powerful nobles would be granted military and administrative power over a portion of land (the Theme, or Themata) as a Strategos.

This does sound like hippie nonsense.
Mebzy - 8 dager siden
@Manored I was like this too for a while. Trying to be as logically minded as possible, however, it's very interesting to look at mysticism for example from a psychological point of view. It opens some interesting avenues. I'm still very sceptical and I'm still a pretty hard determinist, but when you start to understand these things from a psychological perspective, the reasons for why we use things like journals becomes a lot more evident.
Manored - 8 dager siden
@Mebzy I have the same problem/feature
Mebzy - 8 dager siden
CGP Grey is a robot, anything that seems emotional rather than logical sounds like hippie nonsense to him.

Why don’t you do a digital version of the Theme Journal? I would love to support cortex and I like the idea, but I don’t really use paper. I’m sure I’m not the only one that buy it, and it would be a cheaper alternative.

Following up that theme of self improvement you're speaking up in a few of your last videos- I would be very interested in what you meant by your 'time tracking' approach. If you're up to it, I would love to see a video where you explain how that works, how you do it and why and all those interesting things. You already got me with Weekend Wednesday (although i must admit, I had that one almost figured out by myself anyway, just not es detailed and well articulated) and with the theme, of course, so figuring that most of your approaches seem to work for me, I would be more than happy to use my precious time on this beautiful planet (hippie alert!) a lttle more how I really want.
Anyways, thanks a huge lot for your amazing content. Your videos are a ray of light in these _unprecedented_ times...

So, from your description, I'm guessing that you do this in the morning upon waking. I'm impressed that your brain works well enough at such an early hour to actually string some sentences together. Bravo! :-)
