There are several things I do that I think are very positive in my life, yet I don't see other people doing them, or even discussing them. Some possible reasons:
They're good for me, because of me-specific reasons, and they wouldn't be good for most other people.
They're not actually good, I'm just deluded.
Other people haven't heard of them, it takes time for ideas to spread.
It's hard for me to tell what category things are in, but in case it's (3) perhaps listing some would be helpful.
If you have small children: black our their windows so they wake up at a reasonable hour.
If you play mandolin: attach the strap at your waist so the mandolin stays put.
If you work on the command line: log your history in a permanent way.
If you want to play trumpet for contra dance: learn the names of the notes in concert pitch.
If you warm refrigerated breastmilk to feed babies: go ahead and use the microwave, just be careful.
If you're a musician: record your gigs and listen back to them.
If you have a large-screen high-DPI android phone: decrease the DPI so you can fit more on the screen.
What would other people put on a list like this?
- Thoughtful Non-consumption
- Giving Up On Privacy
- Singular They: Towards Ungendered Language
- Insurance and Health Care
- Whole Brain Emulation and Nematodes
