Stats for March, 2017

Back to work this month. :)

After one month vacation, I got back to my routine and got some good results this month.

Books

Added three more books to the list:

List of books read this month

I have to note here that Mastery is one of the best books I ever read. Both Mindfulness in plain English and The Urban Monk are about meditation and how to live a minimalist life.

Articles

I’m still trying to find a way to track the articles I read. In the past months I’ve being adding all of them to Pocket and reading there. Unfortunately I could not find anything to build information from my pocket reading data (suggestions welcome).

For now I’m just exporting my content in HTML format and using a simple Javascript to count it:

var uls=document.body.getElementsByTagName("ul");
for(var i=0; i<uls.length; i++) {
    console.log(uls[i].children.length)
}

760
570

It means I have 760 articles Unread and 570 articles Read. Let’s see how it will be next month. ;)

Coding

I’ve changed the charts from Wakatime since the last post. Let’s check the new ones:

Hours of coding on Wakatime this month

There is no colors or day numbers anymore but it looks better to understand how many hours I’ve been working through the month. It’s still less than what I was expecting, but that’s the main idea, time to improve!

Ruby and Go are the most used languages for this month:

Languages used during this month on Wakatime

Markdown is just my posts here. LOL

I’m shifting from Vim to Emacs, but I still use Vim a lot:

Speaking

Presentations for this month:

  • Tech-talk at Locaweb. It was a Tech-talk about FOSDEM. Every time I go to a conference I schedule a talk to explore the content I saw there. I consider that a good practice with my coworkers.
  • Gaveteiro it was the same presentation that inspired my book but with a small audience. It took 1h 52min and was pretty cool (at least for me). :)

Podcasts

Back to Podcasts again! This time I decided to try a different Podcast player after many years using Podcast Addict. I bought Pocketcasts and I used it for the whole month.

Amount of time spent listening to Podcasts this month

Don’t worry about the “Since 29th of January” because I did not used any podcast player in February. ;)

I really don’t know what these numbers mean. But 1 day of podcast listening make sense for me. I usually listen podcasts 3x faster, this is what causes the confusion. :P

I will probably get back to Podcast Addict in April, because it’s superior in many features. Maybe I will write about it soon.

Hours working

My time tracking with Toggl is more mature now.

Hours working using Toggl

Besides the 206h30min I have 6h30min working on my personal projects.

RescueTime says I reached my goal for the month:

That’s great. :)

Physical activity

Back to the old rhythm, around 10k steps:

My max distance was 11.5km walking:

TV Shows

According to tvshowtime I watched 29 episodes this month.

It’s probably a combination of Vikings, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Locations

This month was not so exciting like the last one, but I worked on my Google Timeline data to make it more accurate. Some cities were removed but I have identified more places I visited:

Expenses

Phew… finally my expenses are getting back to normal, no more travel taking 50%+ of it. But it’s still taking 25%+. :P

Expenses by category this month

This chart of expenses represent 46% of net income, the rest is being invested.

Conclusion

It’s good to be back and see my productivity data growing. I still want to improve my expenses because it’s not as I expect it to be. Maybe next month. :)
