Week 56 โ€“ Another slow week at work ๐Ÿข

 ·  โ˜• 6 min read

I am writing this on a Sunday after quite a while ๐Ÿค  Unlike the last few blogs, I wasnโ€™t able to write this before time as I was busy with work ๐ŸŽญ you know the usual starting a company type of work ๐Ÿฌ

Personal Highlights

The last few blogs have been very businessey and this one will be too I suppose, but I quickly wanted to share a few stats in the old format before we continue

Working-out is back ๐Ÿ˜Ž
I worked out almost everyday this week outta nowhere ๐Ÿ˜Œ I have the same goal for next week but also planning to start going out for walks in the morning ๐Ÿค” Maybe I will start from 1st Aug.

Read 4/7 days this week, not much but tried keeping up.
Also opened a new book called ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever By David Heinemeier Hansson

I am 45% done with unfair advantage but the book started feeling very startupy and not businessy so I decided to switch to this one. I will continue jumbling between the two, will be fun to see which one I finish first ๐Ÿค 

This is prolly the only thing that keeps disappearing ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Idk if I should force it but given the fact that I continue hearing its benefit it just might be worth forcing it into my schedule ๐Ÿ˜

Felt sleepy after waking up most days, even after sleeping for 8+ hours ๐Ÿ˜ด Not something usual but I think it might be because of my poor and slightly alternating sleep schedule.

Business Updates

Here comes the boring part XD.

We managed to finally launch our site. Its not 100% done yet but this is somewhat of a semi-finalized site as I would like to call.

Despite being busy all week and working mostly on octalancer, I still find myself at a place where it feels like I didnโ€™t do enough or didnโ€™t do exactly what was needed to be done in terms of getting started. Idk why I feel like that ๐Ÿคง
Anyway, we did make some progress this week too ๐Ÿ˜Œ But I donโ€™t think that I got to learn a lot.

Next week once I am done with making the videos and once we start marketing and sales funneling, I will surely get a lot to learn but till then I think I should finish the task at hand instead of spending hours browsing other freelance gigs online ๐Ÿ˜ท

Thoughts from the past week

This week I felt a bit emotionally triggered after consuming certain youtube videos and realized how wonderfully I had managed to stay away from triggers in the last 8-10months.

My Favourites from the Week

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š


Yellow highlight | Page: 77
duality of thinking is necessary. Lean too far towards the unfairness of life, and you become a victim. Lean too far into the โ€˜fully-in-control master and architect of your futureโ€™ side, and you become disillusioned when your millionaire status doesnโ€™t appear after a couple of years of hustle.

Blue highlight | Page: 98
believing you can get smarter actually makes you smarter.

Pink highlight | Page: 103
Creativity is largely about training your mind to connect things you learn in one domain to situations that seem completely unrelated. This is known as intersectional or interdisciplinary thinking.


Movies ๐ŸŽฅ

  • Toofaan 2021
    First half was good and predictable.
    2nd half was bad and depressing.

The only thing I liked about the 2nd half was how much less aggressive he was, Nice character development… But at what cost?๐Ÿ˜”

  • Newton 2017
    Good acting, bad plot.


  • Captain America: First Avenger
    capt america
    Loki left a hole in my heart which I was reminded of on Wednesday and so I decided to re-watch an old marvel movie ๐Ÿคง

  • Space Jam 1996
    Watched this because part 2 of the movie is here and I wanted to see how much things have changed tech-wise in the last 25 years and yes, it has been that long since the first movie came out

I will watch the new space jam movie tonight after finishing my work ๐Ÿฟ

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ Email Tracker
This extension allows you to see when the person to whom you have sent the mail checks it.
This is better than mail tracker as it doesnโ€™t embed any watermark or stuff in your email ๐Ÿ“ฉ

Songs ๐ŸŽถ

Podcast(s) ๐ŸŽ™

2nd last episode of the inforium ๐Ÿ˜ญ

This was a nice recap to some of the old episodes of hubermanlab if you havent listened to the ones I shared before then maybe you can listen to this one

I am not sure how anti-vaxxers are going to take this but this podcast addressed the whole situation of anti vaxxing thing going on in the US. How the people protesting against the vaccine arent stupid or illetrate they are just a victim of bad idea :(

Memes/Edits from the last week ๐Ÿ’


Goal(s) for the next week ๐Ÿฅ…

Donโ€™t have anything specific just want to get done with the checklist I made for octalancer.
And maybe do some meditation ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚โ€

Quote(s) from the week๐Ÿ“ƒ

โ€œIf you are an out-of-habit reader, read books that most do.
If you are back in the habit, read books that most don’tโ€

Small update ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Forgot to share it above but my email newsletters are now called Love Letters ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Not a publicity stunt or something XD
Itโ€™s just that weekly updates was such a boring name and so I was thinking to change it for a while. So, it seemed like a good name suggestion out of the blue, also because I have a thing for love letters

Thanks for reading this week’s blog.
I hope you found something of value from it.
