How are you planning your calendar? And do you hold yourself accountable to what you planed?
The first week in Kuala Lumpur and I practically haven’t left the building except for buying groceries. It’s pretty amazing what food can taste like when you do the cooking yourself again. The meditative act of doing so is a nice addition to my schedule.
I am looking to launch a whole bunch of stuff (Podcast, some new YouTube videos, a course, and two software projects) in my time here before heading over to Bali, Indonesia (granted the island will still be there after the Volcano is active again).
I met up with a mastermind buddy of mine here and we are co-working and co-living. And it’s pretty powerful to surround each other with that kind of motivation and accountability.
I highly recommend to do the Calendar Planning over the weekend (mentioned in the What I am doing section). Enjoy and start the next week strong!
Let’s dive into the 4 What’s:
Two very short weeks ago, I started listening to the Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, and it’s been a good listen. The story intriguing, the happenings on the graveyard well described, it’s a book that got me hocked. I’m too little of a literary to judge the overall quality but I definitely enjoyed it.
I found it especially interesting to listen to the very last part of the audiobook version where Nail Gaiman himself describes the origins of the book, as well as the title (which was inspired by “The Jungle Book”).

This year I’ve been trying to get more productive than ever. But how do you actually know that you are doing better than last week? For me one shift came after going through an article by Noah Kagan on how he plans his calendar but also how he adjusts it after the day is done.
I’ve been doing it this week and it’s fascinating. Tracking my morning routine, different client spaces, procrastination, personal time, and my own projects has helped me gain some perspective and also be able to block out time more easily.

Flying in and out of new places, the view from high above always inspires me to think with a big picture mindset. But it’s also a uneasy feeling.

Maybe the better wording around this is “What I am rediscovering”. This song brings back memories form 10+ years ago. It’s magical to look back and see what has happened since then. There are a lot of songs that I found again after listening to this one. The way Spotify (or similar services) make that possible is pretty cool.
What’s your most memorable song of 10+ years ago?
