Living life on 2x speed

Living life on 2x speed
By Ngoiri Migwi • Issue #23 • View online
Hey friends,
In case you have not caught the drift by now, I have been alternating my newsletters between somewhat complex ideas and somewhat mellow ones in a bid to accommodate different tastes of readership. Today’s newsletter is quite laissez-faire but it is on one of the most life-changing habits I acquired last year.
Around mid-year, I listened to Ali Abdaal talk about how he listens to all audiobooks and podcasts on 2x speed. Even more recently he had started watching youtube videos at 2x speed. I chuckled at two things which you must be thinking about right now, the first was, “ I think I am quite slow and if I listened to anything on 2x speed, I would probably not understand it.” And the second was “ this is productivity on steroids and I think life should at least be savored”
Nevertheless, Ali Abdaal is quite convincing so I decided to give this 2x speed thing a shot. Needless to say, my whole life is changed. I have consumed twice as much worthwhile content as I would have on 2x speed. Boring youtube video but great content? Switch to 2x speed. Boring lecture video? 2x speed. An enjoyable podcast but incredulously too long? 2x speed. There is really nothing much better.
If you still feel that 2x speed is rather on the extreme, I suggest you start watching youtube videos on at least just 1.25x speed and feel the difference. And if that won’t be life-changing, I don’t know what is.
Have a great week ahead!

Dear Uhuru,

It is not true that only two communities have been in power.

Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki, and Uhuru Kenyatta belong to one tribe.

The only tribe that has never been president is the one whose children are learning under trees.

It's their turn.
