Golang Channels: explained simply

I see go channels as a pipe connecting two air tight vacuum cleaners. One vacuum cleaner can not push anything into the pipe, if the other vacuum is not pulling from the pipe. Both need to do the opposite action. If one sends the “package” will be stuck until the other turns on it’s receiving action.

Channels can contain multiple slots for “holding” the “packages”.

Pushing more into the pipe than wha the pipe can handle results in a broken pipe.

I also think of it as a queue, first in, first out ( last in last out ). The only difference is this one is ultra sensitive and very particular.

Planning Down Time

After periods of intensity I find myself automatically collapse into a slower period, a period where I feel very unproductive. This was very frustrating as I feel like, you know you can do more, but you’re just not getting to it.

After a few of these instances I realised that this is normal. This is a natural cadence that one has to work with. Just like you can’t your muscles flexed indefinitely so you can’t function at your peak continuously, without taking the time out needed for recovering and recouping your strength.

I hope to settle into a 3 month on and a few days off after that. I know keeping all your leave for the big days sounds very exciting, but I think it’s better for you to take it in snippets throughout the year, maximising the weekends and other holidays.

The Psychology of Money

Let me tell you the story of two investors, neither of whom knew each other, but whose paths crossed in an interesting way….

…. Some people are born into families that encourage education; others are against it. Some are born into flourishing economies encouraging of entrepreneurship; others are born into war and destitution. I want you to be successful, and I want you to earn it. But realize that not all success is due to hard work, and not all poverty is due to laziness. Keep this in mind when judging people, including yourself.
