Clk and Cognitive Loadfleeting
clk and cognitive load
You can create and modify commands very easily and create a lot of aliases and parameters. Eventually, using clk should bring cognitive load to a minimum.
Because sometimes your brain use different wordings to find the same concepts, you should use aliases to adapt the commands to your preferences.
If you don’t want to pollute others with your personal aliases, use a clk shared personal extension.
For instance, I have two screens at work. Some times I prefer switching them off
and on using the command
clk x one, meaning leave only the principal screen
and switch off the side screen. Or sometimes I want to run
clk x left to
indicate that I want only the left screen on.
clk x one and
clk x left do
exactly the same things but are slightly different representations of the same
thing. Instead of adjusting my brain to try to fit to one way of thinking, I use
aliases to make both available. see shape your tools, don’t let your tools shape
