One uneventful evening I was trying to get my freshly installed Ubuntu Desktop to be more night-friendly to my eyes. After successfully changing the browser, file explorer and music player theme to dark I wasn’t able to get Chrome’s address bar to cooperate.

By digging deeper and deeper I realized that all those years I was using the default settings of tools because I am to lazy to find all those settings again when changing the device or when I have to reinstall the OS. But this time, it felt really great to optimize every setting.

In order to motivate myself not to accept itchy default settings any longer, I started this blog.

So I set up the blog the same night and noticed that since early on I execute minimalism, have troubles motivating myself for things which are not urgent and that it’s a real challenge for me to concentrate and focus on certain tasks.

Because of this, I am always trying to find new ways to reduce “noise” and to reorganize/restructure stuff. At some point I wondered if I am just a mad perfectionist but on the other hand this helps me to focus, so let’s see where this journey leads to…
