I kinda you use my blog for experimenting and everything is possible there. I am not keeping the same topic across all the posts. Sometimes it's traveling sometimes working sometimes ordinary life. It's not probably idle but since it is my blog I can do whatever I want hehe.
For today's blog post I did just longer review of Late bloomers book by Rich Karlgaard. I already write a short review here but cuz I really liked that book I feel I can write the whole blog post. 
You can check it here: Late bloomers
I already finished the Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. Short book but nice thoughts inside.
Will see which book I am gonna pick up next. Thinking about Deep Work by Cal Newport.
Finally getting into the reading zone. Last year was weak but this year I have already finished 7 books. It's not anything special but better than nothing hehe.
Would like to read at least 15 books this year. It should be a bare minimum. Funny I read just in English maybe I should read something in my mother tongue as well.
Ok, take care. Seeya tomorrow.

Stay with me. Efran.

    @efran wow, 15 books! Keep reading :)

    Would you discuss about the book with your closed friends at meals or spare time?

    If yes, do you read in English and discuss it in your mother tongue? Or both read and discuss it in English?

      @5plus6 I do not talk much with my friends :D ... but yes I would definitely discuss this particular book and probably in my mother tongue :)

      @efran
      Reading in English, reviewing in English, talking it in the mother tongue, ... That's an iterated process.

      Recently, I was doing "100 blocks a day" in the paper.
      I fill each block and color it into 9 types:
      1) make my future better
      2) enjoyed
      3) spend with other people
      4) time by myself
      5) create something
      6) consume something
      7) focus on my body
      8) focus on my mind
      9) neither one in particular
      After one day, I ask myself which are my favorite blocks of the day, and which are my least favorite?

      I am thinking to do it on Coda instead of paper. Haven't taken into action yet.

      @5plus6 It is interesting and I think doable in Coda .. but how to fasten the filling process, I am worried I wouldn't be able to keep it for longer time hehe. ... btw. someone already made it: https://144blocks.com/

      @efran wow, 144 seems a good alternative (and longer time), but the default activities types are so specific as party, walk, music,... I prefer the 9 types that make it a reflection table other than just an activity tracker.
