The Musk 006 - IKEA Sofa

Welcome to The Musk Newsletter - Issue 006.

Here I reflect upon the previous week and possibly share an article I read, a podcast I listened to, a video I watched, a photo I shot along with my thoughts and commentaries.

Let us start with the sixth issue.

Week 50 (13/12/2021 - 19/12/2021)

I had booked a few days off this week but it turned out that be a stressful week.

Our sofa from IKEA arrived. I was really excited about it and put it together in under 4 hours. I was impressed with myself on how good I could read and interpret the instructions. As a reward, I sat on the chaise lounge and watched mindless YouTube videos.

I watched a few films. I enjoyed watching Queenpins & Despicable Me and hated How to Be Single.

This Week I Learned

Putting pen to paper for my evening reflection is an incredible way to unwind and close my day.

Favourites of the Week

To Listen: Productivity YouTuber Carl Pullein explains the difference between a goal and a project in the podcast episode. A key takeaway was that Goals are about changing us as a person for the better. And, we may use as many Projects as we may need to achieve our goals.

To Read: On the Importance of externalizing your thoughts. I have always been an advocate for this and what better way is there than journaling and/or keeping a blog, even if nobody reads it.

To Watch: A good video on How to Write Every Day. A key takeaway is to make writing your default action.
