March is gone, and it’s time for metrics! 📊 Books Note: I write a review for each book I read. You can find them on my Goodreads account. Just one book this month, but a 5 stars one: When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing. This book is about optimization based on time and energy. What is the best time to do some action based on statistics? I found it to be amazing and could confirm many of the assumptions with my data.
February time! Let’s see what we can get from my metrics. 😀 Books Note: I write a review for each book I read. You can find them on my Goodreads account. I’m quite satisfied with my reading list for this month: Five books read in a month and a 4.6 average rating. That’s what I call a good reading month. The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence.
I’m excited to write this post about my performance for the first month of the year. I think I will have some great news at the end of this post, related to my expenses. Let’s get started! 😀 Books I decided to listen to my podcasts this month, so I did not hear that many audiobooks. The only book I read this month was a physical book: Hiding in unnatural happiness is a book I received from a monk in York.
Brace yourselves, this post will be HUGE TL;DR: It was a great year and I’m really glad to see the metrics and notice everything I accomplished. I don’t remember the last time I posted my yearly review publicly but as I’m doing monthly posts of my stats, it makes sense to do an annual review as well. I do yearly reviews since around 2005 but I never post them publicly.
Came back from a travel last month and just packed my stuff to travel again this month. Let’s see if it affected my performance. Books I was traveling this month, so as usual, I’m not reading/listening to audiobooks because I prefer to focus on the place I’m visiting. For this reason, I did not finish any book this month. With that said, it is the first time I have 4 books on my reading list at the same time.
This will be a quick post to help people that are doing the same search as I was doing some minutes ago: “firefox disable ctrl+q”. I’m using Firefox Quantum for some weeks now (will probably post about it in the future) and the ctrl+q “feature” really annoys me. It’s not the first time that I hit ctrl+q by accident just to see the entire browser and tabs being closed without warning.
Came back from a travel last month and just packed my stuff to travel again this month. Let’s see if it affected my performance. Books Read three books this month. My first book of H.P. Lovecraft, called At the mountains of madness was one of them. It was an interesting experience to read it. I also read about minimalism just to realize that I’m a minimalism since forever. If you like minimalism I also recommend to listen to their podcast and read their website.
This month was very unusual because I was traveling through Portugal and Spain for work and tourism, so it will probably affect my stats a lot. With that said, let’s see how it is. 😄 Books I read some pages from Elixir in Action, but unfortunately did not finish any book this month. I usually don’t read that much when traveling, so it’s sad but expected. 😞 Articles As usual, I’m using that same export file from Pocket and the same script to calculate the amount of articles I read:
It’s already the end of October and I could not manage to post my stats from September but I have a good reason for that (which you will read about in the next month 😉). Books What Doesn’t Kill Us: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength is a book that describes what the human body can do if trained for it.
TL;DR: I’m working on something I really believe is good at Doist and I feel great. As I mentioned on this post (in pt-BR) I left the company I was working for the last year to join a new company. The new company is Doist and I’m working for them since July. Some time ago a friend asked me why I joined Doist and I realized it’s kind of a love story so I decided to write the post.
