Week 66 โ€“ It's coming back, can you guess what?

 ·  โ˜• 5 min read

This week was pretty meh, idk I did very less this week but still somehow feel content XD.

Personal Highlights

The Old Personal Highlights format will be coming back very soon. Not sure if it will contain as many things as before, but yes it sure will be consistent.

  • Worked on a gaming video freelance project this week and absolutely hated it, idk what it is about editing that I don’t enjoy anymore :(

  • I had a few ideas this week, some originating from pain points, some from sheer desire to grow but all revolving around one big Idea.

  • I finished reading The Unfair Advantage

    The Unfair Advantage: How You Already Have What It Takes to SucceedThe Unfair Advantage: How You Already Have What It Takes to Succeed by Ash Ali

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Great book! Insightful and practical.

    PS: Love the humble beginnings, would love to follow the same path as theirs but then again I have different sets of unfair advantages compared to them and so I cant do what they did ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  • In terms of work, I worked on a Shopify website for a friend (mentioned last week) and quickly came to the realization that my skills, when it comes to customizing Shopify themes are limited and I might not be able to finish the project like how he wants it. But nevertheless, I kept trying and invested a lot of my time into it, but the output was still not good enough.

    Then I tried delegating it, only to realize that it is not a known skill among the people whom I know.

    So, I tried getting people from shopify’s job board and fiverr, I did get a lot of responses on fiverr, people claiming they will easily be able to do the job but all of them seemed sketchy for some reason.

    And that is when I tried contacting Rohit and came to know that he has worked using the language before and he might be able to help and I ended up giving the work to him.

    Now why did I tell this story?

    The reason I am sharing this story is for you to understand that
    we value trust over expertise when it comes to getting a thing done, and so when trying to sell : try selling trust instead of expertise , maybe it will give you a better result.

Business Updates

  • Finally finished the new page for our podcasting service called Octacast.
    PS: It’s a podcasting ‘service’, not a podcast.

    There are still a few small things to tweak. Once I do those I will share the link on my Twitter.

Thoughts from the past week

No podcast this week as I already wrote about it above and I am low on repeating index, please I am not Ankur warikoo.

Social Media updates

Wrote a small thread. Idk if it makes sense.

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š



From The Unfair Advantage by Ash Hasan & Ali Kubba


Movies ๐ŸŽฅ

Did not watch any movie.

Series ๐Ÿ“บ

What If…?: S1 Episode 8


Kinda crazy episode ngl, sure it had a bit of lazy writing but still overall the episode was a lot better than the last few episodes.

Creators ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿป

People are not impressing me nowadays ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ

One Click Extensions Manager

This extension is for people who use a lot of extensions in chrome.

Keeping all the extensions turned on all the time can not only drain a lot of system resources but also make sites load slower and that is why I like to keep the less used extensions turned off and only enable them when I need them and this extension allows me to do it quickly.

Goal(s) for the next week ๐Ÿฅ…

  • It’s October and I remember last year in October I finally started going out for morning runs and so I will do the same this year, after a good 5 months long break. I will finally start waking up early and start with going out for morning walks, which I will soon convert to morning runs ๐Ÿ˜ค
