What I’m doing now
FAMILY: My wife and I are preparing to welcome our baby girl into this world. Every weekend (almost) I take time-lapse videos of my wife’s ever-expanding tummy.
WORK: Juggling multiple marketing tasks: video production, websites/social media updates, photography & graphics design, email marketing, database management. I had to make my schedule in chunks to be more efficient with my time.
WRITING: Started a daily journal on Evernote just to develop the habit of writing my thoughts so that they don’t just drift and get lost in the tiny spaces of my mind.
WEBSITE: I’m helping out an England-based charity organization revamp their old website.
PIANO: I’ve gradually been practicing this piano piece for a long time now – more than a year. It’s from the movie ‘Pride & Prejudice’. I’ve completed the piece but needs a lot of mastery to be able to play at the right tempo.
CODING: I’ve actually started learning Python Program at Datacamp. My gut is telling me to start coding.
BOOKS I’m currently reading or listening to:
Conversations that Win the Complex Sale, Erik Peterson & Tim Riesterer (Audible)
This was a suggestion from a colleague in our BD group chat
Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, Simon Sinek (Audible)
I’ve been a long time fan of Simon’s Ted Talk and finally decided to get his book
The Website Investor: The Guide to Buying an Online Website Business for Passive Income, Jeff Hunt (Kindle)
The author was hosting a weekend seminar in Dubai but I thought of just getting his book instead – much cheaper!
Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days, Chris Guillebeau (Audible)
Amazon’s recommendation convinced me to get this one since I read his other book sometime back. Amazon’s cross-selling works!
How to Shoot Video that doesn’t Suck, Steve Stockman (Kindle)
It seems like my video skills have stalled a bit – I need some new insights.
How to Write Better Copy, Steve Harrison (real book)
Got this from a local bookstore. I’m obviously trying to improve my writing.
Show Your Work!, Austin Kleon (real book)
My wife bought this for me as I already finished the first one “Steal Like an Artist”.
