Writing this on 1st of march [2 days delay], the reason being well …. I procrast…
Today is one year anniversary of my Email newsletters 😎 &
Also, a year anniversary of blog switching to Hugo framework [The blog looked different prior to this day last year because it used Gatsby]
Anyway, it’s a nice thing that I delayed writing the blog for 2 days because now I get to publish it on a special day 😌 Quite unexpected, honestly.
Last week wasn’t great in terms of me finishing my to-do list items. I actually only did the things that I added to the list every day and not the pending stuff 🤐
- Journaling: Kinda addicted to it. I can’t do anything other than writing my journal first thing in the morning, anything excluding getting distracted because getting distracted is more natural than following a habit IMO, and so distractions are what I always try to minimize.
- Morning Run
Didn’t go out very regularly this week but will do in the coming week 🤧
- Reading: Did not read enough this week tbh :( Idk why I don’t feel like reading in my free time, I just take up my phone instead of kindle. It is hurting the wannabe productive image of myself in my head 🤧
- Coding: I finished the photos project which I was doing at the time of writing last week’s blog but I haven’t yet started on the website which I was supposed to do 2-3 weeks back 😓
Optimization and Organization
Did not do quite a lot / deliberate efforts of organizing or optimizing my system but it is something I will reflect on much more deeply today and see what changes I can bring to my system.
Company got rid of a clothing brand client this week, so now I am just in one team 🧘♂️ but will probably be given more responsibility once they sign other clients.
I talked with Ocus on discord regarding starting a business agency and shit and he wants to start one with me, so does this mean the death of Octalancer? Maybe 🥶 or maybe we can rebrand octalancer 🤔
Thoughts from the past week
It goes without saying that I had a lot of thoughts and opinions about war, but I don’t feel like sharing them yet because I haven’t thought clearly about it yet.
Watching reels on our own feed is more addicting than watching reels that others have sent us even though those are the refined items from their feed (they went through a lot of them and shared the best)— TRB (@teeaarbee) February 27, 2022
I think the reason behind it is Instagram deliberately shows us a few videos that aren’t that interesting, in-between other reels, in order to give it the poker machine effect wherein a person gets addicted not to the wins but to the chances of winning.
If you are struggling with something just start giving advice about it on Twitter 👍 #reverse_psych your way out of problem empic style 😎— TRB (@teeaarbee) February 22, 2022
Even tho this tweet, in particular, was a joke. It could be a good idea to teach something as you learn it.
It sort of is a double-edged sword tbh, wherein it might help other beginners a lot but there is also a chance of you spreading misinformation because you are very new to the thing.
