This week was one of the busiest weeks, that I have had in a while.
And not the lot of work type of busy, but busy as in I had work every day,
Tasks related to the video editing project that I was completing.
I have almost finished it, I will be done with it by Tuesday and then I will be a free man, I am really excited to transition to this new phase of me not having to think about it. Because even though it was related to editing, I wasn’t really enjoying it.
Update [Monday]: I wrote this yesterday and was expecting to publish it yesterday, but unfortunately had to give more time to my work, and by the time I was done I didn’t feel like publishing it because I didn’t have the required energy to run final checklist and add memes.
- WRITING UPDATE
I wrote on my notion journal every day, not as much as I wanted to but certainly on an average more than the last week.
- READING UPDATE
Ok hear me out on this… last week I had completed 4 chapters of the book Immortals of meluha and I was on chapter 5’s beginning of this week ,,, and guess which chapter I am on right now?
This is the most fun I have ever had while reading [I don’t remember much from my childhood days of reading I wasn’t much of a reader … or that’s what I told myself] mainly because before this all i read was fiction
But for real though I really did not expect reading fiction to be this great, this switch from non-fiction to fiction was like having a games period in school ka time table :P
I read 14 chapters and around 170 pages which Is def more than my goal of reading 5 pages every day when I first started reading after a while, this October.
But the words are bigger and more spaced out in this book though. Still it doesn’t change the fact that I have been having a lot of fun reading it.
- MEDITATION UPDATE
Meditated every day for almost 10Mins, Not really making any visible progress but I don’t expect anything from it. I just do it coz its cool among productive people 😎💅.
They say you will start getting the benefits once you learn How to meditate which I am sure I will learn if I continue trying every day, let’s see where meditating or at least trying to meditate leads me 🤧
I tried a new app for only a day, it was nice but I like calm more, I will however try out different apps after I am done with the 30days introduction course in calm.
- FITNESS UPDATE
Didn’t run a lot, But my new min default is 3Km which is nicer 🏃♂
- MUSIC UPDATE
Practised keyboard 5/6 days [excluding today]
It wasn’t much, but this is much better than the last few months where I did not play it at all.
Also I use an app to practise playing keyboard so my playing time is in the records 😌
Playing an instrument with a habit based system sounds like a chore rather than a thing anyone interested in music would do…
But I am not that deeply passionate aur mujhe taana nhi sunna parents ka ki itne paiso se lia hi kiu jab bajana nhi tha 💀💀
That is why I slapped it on my habit tracker, just to be technically more consistent 🤠
I am sure one day I wont have to see it as an habit and I ll be simply able to sit infront of any paino and play it. But first I must force it 😤
- SLEEP UPDATE
Oh god oh fucj I kinda fucked this up way more this week
Didn’t sleep on time[9:30pm] plus woke up a bit late
😔😔😔 Mainly because of my work… and… no more excuses 😤😤😤
Imma kill myself if I don’t bring it back to sleeping at 9:30 and waking up at 5:30
Thoughts from the past week
When we keep talking about a particular idea/philosophy/thought, our ability to explain it gets better which is a nice thing because it gives us clarity and we can explain it better to others,
but its also kinda risky because if it’s a bad/wrong idea then we will just make it stronger in our heads which could lead to some trouble for us.
Emotional unavailability a utility for productivity.
When we are emotionally unavailable we don’t feel the need to interact or demand attention of any other person, which is such a nice thing.
Idk for some reason, I have been very emotionally unavailable lately 🤪
Not only that I don’t even feel like texting most of my friends/people I used to talk to regularly a few months back.
Its kinda nice for me but I do hope they don’t feel or think that I ignore them or something 🤐
Also like most other things I feel like it’s a phase and not an identity trait.
So if you are emotionally unavailable rn like most singles out there then don’t write it in your insta bio 💀💀
Everything is temporary 😌

My Favourites from the Week
I turned off youtube feed and recommendation, and so ended up watching videos from creators whom I enjoy watching or the ones I search for.
These first two videos are the same but I felt happy when I saw an Indian channel[2nd video] making a better and more informed video on the topic.
The first one is a lil more optimistic but still it lacked few social insights which were provided by sira in the 2nd one 😄
I watched this video and started working whenever I didn’t feel motivated enough 🤭
Maybe one day I ll make a video of this sort where I sit for hours and record myself working, I really like these kinda videos for some reason.
Alight enough with info time for some entertaining videos :
This last video has a special place in my heart 🤧
Should I share about big personalities and not just small content creators ? lemme know in comments / DMs
This is a very powerful file and application search utility for windows.
It’s basically like Alfred for mac, which Ali abdal keeps promoting 🤬
Came across this app after watching this video:
The app which they shared in this video was not working properly for me so I did a of research and installed listary.
Spotify wrapped came out this week… I did not find anyone’s stat even moderately till I saw my stats and then it kinda became a trend of sharing and then I saw a few of my internet friend’s and kinda found it be be interesting lol.
Here’s my Spotify 2020 wrapped
I did not listen to any podcast from start to finish this week, listened to 3 of them aadha aadha …
Will share those next week once I complete them.
However, I did listen to this video completely while running so I consider this as a podcast
This was very nice to listen to and unlike podcast where they discuss a lot of other topics this video stuck to just meditation which I loved about it.
Quotes from the week📃
Got a call this week from a relative where we kinda tried talking about my future …
I did not have anything strong to say but after a few days I came across this
Why have more faith in your fears than your dreams?— Kamal Ravikant (@kamalravikant) December 1, 2020
So I sort of find this quote relatable in some ways …
One more quote this week, because the heading reads Quotes with an s at the end 😝
“Fear Of Missing Out” most certainly means you are missing out on where you are right now. Appreciate where you are and what you’re doing. We can’t be everywhere at once.— John Cena (@JohnCena) December 6, 2020

Goal(s) for the next week 🥅
No new goals for the next week.
I want to fix my sleep schedule first, like I said need to make the changes slowly and so I don’t want to force add new things on top of my habit stack.
It’s monday afternoon already, I kinda over delayed it coz a friend came to my place and i decided to clean my computer and table with him 🤭
