It seems like in April I’m going backwards a little bit. I don’t feel very motivated, due to the weird times we are living. I’m still doing good: waking up every single day at 6 and having my morning routine of exercising, meditating, and studying, but I recognize I’m living waiting for this times to pass.
I’m pretty satisfied with my job: in Idealize we are doing good, and we are literally working too much, even on weekends. It’s ok, I wanted to reach the point where there’s too much job to do.
April 2021’s books
I finished reading Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. I read in a couple of days Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything. Still reading about Cryptocurrencies and Stoicism.
April 2021’s movies
I’m not watching movies or TV series (apart Monk on TV ad dinner time). I decided to avoid spending time on activities that don’t contribute to my growth, but also I’m going to sleep early at night and basically working during the day, so I don’t feel I really have time to chill out watching movies.
That said, I spent a few evening watching The Great Escapists. What I like about this show is that it explains a little bit about Physics and Mechanics.
April 2021’s activities
I’m still meditating 10 minutes every morning using Medito. I finished the 30 days meditation challenge last month and I did all the beginner and intermediate’s lessons. During the meditation sessions, the app teaches you about some technics you can use while meditating or during the day, covering various aspects like work, relationships, negative thoughts, pandemic times etc.
I’m keeping on working out every single morning using Fitify and I just finished the Muscle gain 12 weeks program. I’m running on the weekends for a few km just to keep my PAI at a good level. Still going to work by bicycle if I don’t have meetings at customers’ places.
April 2021’s music
While I’m working I like to listen to some white noise or to the Discover Weekly playlist in Spotify. I learned how to play Monk Main Theme with the guitar.
April 2021’s lessons
I’m still going on with “A Handbook for New Stoics: How to Thrive in a World Out of Your Control―52 Week-by-Week Lessons“. I’m trying to incorporate the teachings into my daily life, but most of the times I just forget about them.
I’m continuing with the Become a Superlearner Udemy course. I’m still having difficulties with saccades (minimizing the eyes movements while reading). I’m also subvocalizing most of the time.
April 2021’s challenge
I decided it was time to pay attention to my diet. During the last months I started to eat too much and I want to treat food for what it is: nutrition.
I’m still trying to get interested in other people. I’m not usually good in asking questions to friends (I prefer to learn stuff from books, that I find more interesting) and I realized that this is affecting my relationships, so I’m trying to work on it.
