I got sick this week after like 3+ months 🤧
Nothing serious though, just the old cough and cold.
Or it could be COVID hmmm 🤔
Idk I feel a lot better now compared to 2 days ago and that’s all that matters.
I wasn’t able to keep up with my to-do list again this week, despite decreasing a lot of stuff from there 😔
I do all the urgent stuff but not the essential stuff like stretching and coding.
This also happens to be the reason why I fear breaking any streak so much because it’s just so easier to use the excuse of “oh, I skipped it once. Doing it again won’t hurt much.”
- Journaling: Once again the strongest in the list of my current habits, planning to include food in it too like Tim Ferriss does 🥶 could be overkill though, so for now
- Morning Run
I went to run 3 days in a row before falling sick and so was able to maintain the total distance,
Will increase this as soon as I get well 😤
- Reading: Did some casual reading of spark. And even though I already know most of the things that are being discussed, I still feel like reading just to brainwash myself with more insight and reasons to exercise.
- Coding: 😥
I have a website project which I will work on this week and I think that will be better than blindly practicing coding stuff 👨💻
Optimization and Organization
When I started this section I had set up a daily goal of optimizing and organizing but now ever since failing at it multiple times I have decreased it to just a day in a week and this makes me avoid procrastinating and letting the days pile up because I know it’s only once a week so might as well do it.
This is also a bit of a meta optimization tip. If you don’t feel like doing something every day, then schedule it to once a week.
There are several things like this which I do on a weekly basis instead of daily like:
- Cleaning my table, phone and computer.
- Finance review (Noting down all my earnings and spending)
- Organizing files and folders on PC.
- Writing this blog 😝
Another regular week in the job, it is getting repetitive slowly and despite that, I seem to use it as an excuse to not have time, hmmmm.
But anyway, the peeps at my workplace are nice and said they could handle my work if I wasn’t feeling like it, which is quite wholesome tbh
I did send some cold emails this week and once again got no reply. It seems like a dead-end, maybe because I am doing something wrong. And having the job makes me worry less about my mistake because at the end of the day I can always not worry about getting 0 replies. I don’t know if its a trap, but if it is, it’s a very comfortable one 🤪
Thoughts from the past week
We almost always act first and then decide the reason for our actions.
Goes against the fact that we have free will, but it is a hard truth that very few people agree on.
This thought came into my mind after I stumbled upon a question in fs.blog
Apparently it’s a very hard interview question 🤔
If something makes u say "STFU" then stop investing your attention in that (goes even for this tweet), unfollow, and move on to sources that make you say "Wow"— TRB (@teeaarbee) February 10, 2022
One of my best IMO 😎🤚
Social Media updates
Same as last week.
My Favourites from the Week ⭐
Twitter Threads 🧵
During a health symposium @StanfordMed I learned from a cardiologist colleague that even if we get our 180min of zone 2 cardio per week, the benefits are largely (or entirely) erased by sitting >5 hours per day. Solution: standing (1:1 ratio w/sitting) & 3-4, 10min walks per day.— Andrew D. Huberman, Ph.D. (@hubermanlab) February 10, 2022
exercise improves learning on three levels: first, it optimizes your mind-set to improve alertness, attention, and motivation; second, it prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information; and third, it spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus.

This movie is a prequel to the beloved kingsman movie series and boy did I get my expectations high only for them to get stumbled on the grounds of England circa 1940 🙂
If you have watched the last 2 kingsman movies and if you like them then do yourself a favor and don’t watch this one 🙂
I did not watch the entire movie but I skimmed through it after reading the IMDB parent’s guide 🌚
I don’t have any problem with any scene or dialogue, but the problem IMO lies in the story and how they casually showed cheating in a sort of normal way 🙂
The 2nd last season of the series came out and it was quite unexpected and different from what people have predicted but despite that, it was good. I have no complaints.
If you haven’t watched the series yet, then now is a perfect time to watch it because its last episode comes out next week and it will be fun to watch it with you 🌹
I was suggested this app by someone on my telegram group and had to try it out because it is something I have been looking for a while now. The app turned out to be better than I expected it to be. I got the modded version of the app but I wouldn’t mind paying for it tbh 🥶
Idk about the free version but the pro version has a lot of features that I wanted in a blocker app, like the ability to combine multiple combinations and have different profiles turn on at different times.

Start optimizing it now.
I finished listening to The defining decade [Audiobook]
And I think people who want to lead a normal life should 100% listen/read it.
