The Top Reader Advice for Surviving Extra-Long Flights - WSJ
By Adam Thompson
Aug. 21, 2018
I would also add that taking Melatonin - particularly when flying eastwards - can be very helpful in reseting your internal clock.
Always do serious exercise before a long flight, for me, 1.5 mile swim. Could be a big run for you, or walk, whatever is your thing. To get tired. to help sleep on plane. all other points good, limit alcohol, take a melatonin for sleep; time your meals to new time zone; you should skip a meal, better to arrive hungry. Get in sun as long as possible in new locale, and serious exercise again. and just know you're gonna be physically bad until you can recover. And last, business class or better if possible.

Augmenting Long-term Memory
In this essay we investigate personal memory systems, that is, systems designed to improve the long-term memory of a single person. In the first part of the essay I describe my personal experience using such a system, named Anki. As we'll see, Anki can be used to remember almost anything. That is, Anki makes memory a choice, rather than a haphazard event, to be left to chance. I'll discuss how to use Anki to understand research papers, books, and much else. And I'll describe numerous patterns and anti-patterns for Anki use. While Anki is an extremely simple program, it's possible to develop virtuoso skill using Anki, a skill aimed at understanding complex material in depth, not just memorizing simple facts.

Repeat yourself, do more than one thing, and... — programming is terrible
As Sandi Metz put it, “duplication is far cheaper than the wrong abstraction”.

You can’t really write a re-usable abstraction up front. Most successful libraries or frameworks are extracted from a larger working system, rather than being created from scratch. If you haven’t built something useful with your library yet, it is unlikely anyone else will. Code reuse isn’t a good excuse to avoid duplicating code, and writing reusable code inside your project is often a form of preemptive optimization.

When it comes to repeating yourself inside your own project, the point isn’t to be able to reuse code, but rather to make coordinated changes. Use abstractions when you’re sure about coupling things together, rather than for opportunistic or accidental code reuse—it’s ok to repeat yourself to find out when.
