Week 54 โ€“ Falling in love with work โ‰

 ·  โ˜• 7 min read


Aight so I am on time again ๐Ÿ˜Ž

It’s Saturday, we are in the middle of 2021, the lockdown is hopefully going to end very soon and I have even recorded and published the podcast episode for this week, tomorrow is Sunday but I will work on finishing the website for the new business that I am starting, life is good ๐Ÿ˜Œ

And I donโ€™t feel bad for ignoring all the bad that is going on in the world because I havenโ€™t recently been exposed to any of those news as I mostly stayed away from social media and news this week.

Personal Highlights

Enough of sharing feel good vibe we back at sharing weekโ€™s update ๐Ÿ˜ค

Before I begin, did you know if you want you can share your weekโ€™s update with me?

Just reply to any of my weekly email newsletters and I will read it ๐Ÿคฒ
Now coming back to the updates, so this week I learnt a lot of HTML and CSS and that too without watching any tutorials all on my own while experimenting/building the new website for Octalancer.

We are still working on the main website but if you click on this link before Monday [12th July ] you can see an alternative version of the site one which I have set-up temporarily.

Now coming to what else I did this week? Well, I just realized I did nothing other than working on the site day and night except in the starting I wasted a day trying to figure out a way to set up a static website for my podcast but unfortunately wasnโ€™t able to find any free automatic solution ๐Ÿค’

But hopefully my quest will end soon, after I learn a bit more about setting up websites and stuff.

I think last week I said our site will be live by the time I publish my next blog as you might have guessed it’s not complete yet

But it will be complete soon maybe by Monday you can check the above link later in the week or I will re-share the link with you next week ๐Ÿ˜Œ Along with our social media handles ๐Ÿ˜พoh and also reveal the team then only ๐Ÿ˜Œ

But if you want spoilers then check after 12th July.

Thoughts from the past week

Aight now coming to the thoughts as you might know I have recently replaced this section with a link to my podcast and so here is this weekโ€™s podcast

I recommend you listen to it at 1.5x speed, itโ€™s gonna save you a lot of time โŒ›

Listen to it on all audio streaming platforms from here

Podcast Feedback

There is one thing which I missed to share in this weekโ€™s podcast and that was knowing the limitations when it comes to trial-and-error learning.

What I mean by limitations is when you are trying to figure out how to do something and if you know that it’s possible then you will probably try harder unlike if you were unsure about it.

And so, I think that is where tutorials and guide come in rescue, they can often show us the possibilities and it is then up to us to try and figure out the way.


I posted this without knowledge becuase I dont use those apps, apparently there is already a feature like that but it is under utilized hmmmm

Social Media updates

I posted one tweet every day this week at exact 6:00 pm everyday and all of them were automated obviously.

But in between I felt like stopping after I saw the tweets not performing very well but then Prakhar retweeted one of my tweets ๐Ÿ‘‡ and I got my confidence back XD ๐Ÿ˜Ž

For next week though, I am not very sure ๐Ÿ˜ I kinda wanted to post one tweet everyday this month but sometimes they feel a bit too generic, I think. So, I might stop tweeting or I might not. Iโ€™m not sure so keep checking my twitter to find out, jk, I will share about it here next week and also write a convincing reason because we humans are very good at reasoning no matter which option we choose ๐Ÿ›ฉ

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ



site blocking apps

These are the 2 site blocking extensions that I am familiar with. I used them earlier but havenโ€™t used them for a while now but now I think I will re-experiment and for the next week I will block all distracting sites during the day so that atleast I donโ€™t somehow get distracted during my work hours.


Oh, and btw I will implement the same technique on my mobile using Digital wellbeing for android and block all social media sites from morning till noon so that I donโ€™t browse social media immediately after I wake up.

Mobile schedule

Letโ€™s see if it works or not ๐Ÿค’
