1.19 Study Log – Utilizing diffuse mode thinking

2.25h Today I worked on my mbta app and built a little bit more functionality. I also found and squashed a few bugs. That felt pretty cool. The most interesting thing about my day was that I went cross country skiing and I would think about one of my projects occasionally on the ski. It was cool to have my passive mind continue working on the question after my focused mind had moved on to thinking about skiing again. Essentially my passive mind (‘diffuse mode thinking’ is what it is called) continued to chew on the problems and would occasionally interject with an idea it had come up with. This is the exact same way of thinking that produces shower thoughts. It’s been a while since I took the learning how to learn class, but it has really been interesting for me to continue to think about it, practice it’s methods, and assess the results.

Tell me what you think.
