I have a very specific question and I hope there’s a way to achieve this.
I’m using a Shortcut at the moment that populates a Bear note with ‘the layout of my day’. It starts with a quote, then the xkcd of the day, the weather and my commute length, and then it goes on to pull out from my calendar my appointments for the day, from todoist the tasks of the day, the day’s headlines etc. I found this Shortcut on Reddit as making this myself is definitely above my skill level.
I was showing this to my friend, and we’re both obsessed with the Daily Stoic book. I was wondering if there’s any way of populating my daily Bear note with the quote of the day from Daily Stoic.
I realise this is copyrighted content, but this is obviously for private consumption so I feel like it’s kinda okay =//. But obviously, the content only exists in the book so to make this work one would either have to 1) get permission from the author, or 2) screenshot everything and then somehow use some shortcut magic to pull the photo from a categorised database.
Am I wild to want this? Do you have any creative ideas for solutions that could work, and be ethical**.
**edit. As I’m writing this I realised the only way to achieve this would be by getting permission from the author. I’ve emailed him to see if he would grant this.
