Public Commitment 2019 – Update 3
Over the last three months, I’ve been reflecting on the theme by looking back at some things I learned and read. I have started the Three Body Problem series again (almost finished within 2 weeks) and reread ReWork.
I would like, in the coming three months, to upgrade my website some more. So that I can better search back and rely on the site even more.
I think that that I can also use the theme with a new venture I’m exploring, by going back to the knowledge I had before, and to connections (ghehe) I have made throughout my life (now at 29 years and counting).
Here is my analysis of the goals and various updates:
Goal 1: Make this website a true personal knowledge hub
I didn’t find time for writing essays (as I would like to have done) and I think that this quarter I might not make them, but who knows.
What I do want to do is work on the book part and make a better overview of that on the site.
I like how the timeline is going and enjoy writing down my notes of important/valuable things I read/listened/discussed. The pace where it’s at now (2/3 updates per week) is good for me.
Goal 2: Eat good meals that support my well-being 90% of the time
Last quarter I experimented with intermittent fasting (IF). In relation to doing weightlifting, I stopped doing it. But since this week I started again. I do weightlifting in the afternoon now (at 2 pm) and start eating at around noon. So far, so good.
Other food things are going well and Lotte and I cook almost every day (and I eat leftovers for lunch/brunch).
Goal 3: Keep on improving my house
The house is going well. In the coming quarter, we want to make the hallway a little nicer and I think that’s it for now.
Double-glass at the front of the house might be the next thing, but it’s not a high priority thing.
Goal 4: Achieve my fitness goals
I’m now almost in the middle of the 13-week strength cycle and that has been going really well. So off to the gym in a few moments.
With regards to the Clean & Jerk of 90kg, I think I will be able to make that. But let’s focus on the training and max out later. Or just give it a little try tomorrow, I will see. And maybe I will try doing an Overhead Squat Press today, just to test if I can even do it with the bar.
Goal 5: Write Spero
Yes, I’ve done it. Version 0.2 is out and you can find it at the link above. Feedback is very welcome.
Soon I will start writing other stories too.
That is it for now. Next quarter I hope to share some good updates (and the reflection for the whole year) again.
