    The Russian Profession 

    At my current job there are four employees who speak Russian. Three are younger programmers, one is an older janitor.

    Mind Like Water 

    Amazon suggested the following book to me : “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity“.

    Who wouldn’t want to get organized? But let’s see some reviews first:


    Freedom of a “mind like water”, January 2, 2003
    Reviewer: Maxim Masiutin (see more about me) from Chisinau, Republic of Moldova
    Five Stars
    “Getting Things Done” is a road map to achieve the positive, relaxed focus that characterizes your most productive state. It will help you to get everything done with the freedom of a “mind like water”.


    Side note: in Soviet jokes Moldovans played a role similar to that of Polacks in American jokes.


    Who writes these 5 star reviews??, December 8, 2002
    One Star
    Reviewer: A reader from Wheeling, WV United States
    The author is likeable and the book is an easy read. It confirmed what I already knew – get all of your to do’s consolidated into one list so you can prioritize. Beyond that it didn’t really add much value to my life or work.
