#why jekyll ? Jekyll because it has super power . Jekyll can handle having post and pages for the website , while the octopress is only able to handle only post .

thats one only no ?

instead of

rake deploy

one uses

jekyll build

and push directly to github along with markdown files , which is very handy feature incase one lost blog . It can be regenerated again.

Not to mention the awesome liquid tags . and emoji <h2 id="planning-does-not-work-while-judging-does">Planning Does Not Work While Judging Does</h2>


Planning includes others people actions, well that can change instantaneously . So the plan gets nowhere. Is that what you want ? NO.

Judging part includes you as an integral part. Well you can trust yourself more than anybody else yourself.

Planning also sounds more like a evil intention. Judging either goes right or wrong . That’s all.

Goal is same but paths are different . Choose the right one.
