This Week

I’ve had a pretty good week, an excellent weekend with friends and a productive week at work. I realise I’m much happier with my work when I have well defined objective to work toward. I focus better and are generally more productive.
[The Good] I might be involved in a very interesting project at work, Fingers crossed
[The Good] I’ve been writing in my 5 mins journal every day and night for over a week. I like how it forces you to think what actually went well.
[The Bad] The hot again, rainy again weather is causing me to not sleep so well #grumpy
[Next Week’s Goal] Keep up with the journal and try the Wim Hoff method at least 3 times a week
