"By nature all people are alike, but by education become different" - Author Unknown

If there is one thing worth committing to, it's your education. Whether it's doing well in school, reading a new book, or learning how a language, taking the time to sharpen your noodle is the wisest investment you can make.

The power of belief is astounding! Just changing the point of view has helped me not to just see clearly and differently but also to see more, am becoming more intuitive and my character is changing I listen more, I relate, judge less and love more freely.

‎- Experimental: 48 hour gap system ‎
‎--- Starting the time when I finish the final PhD x8w session of Thursday until 48 hours later, ‎I ‎am ‎not ‎allowed to ‎do PhD x8w

Common rules and notes:‎
‎- any updates in this journal take effect in 30 minutes ‎
‎- Deep Work Stint (abbreviated as DW) is defined as a stint for which the following points hold:‎ ‎
‎--- This should be eight x1 work sessions (i.e. a deep work stint)‎ ‎
‎--- My phone (Infinix) must be continuously turned off for the duration of this session (except ‎if ‎someone ‎other than myself asks me to turn on my phone) ‎
‎--- When I use my galaxy S9 during this work stink, I must switch on the Applock ‎profile ‎‎“DW”. ‎Following ‎are the additional clauses of Deep Work Stint related to Applock:‎ ‎
‎----- while this Applock profile is turned on, I am not allowed to access the apps blocked ‎by ‎this ‎Applock ‎profile ‎
‎----- In order to diable this Applock profile during a Deep Work Stint, must write down: (1) ‎purpose ‎and ‎‎(2) ‎start and end time for disabling the Applock DW profile. The advanced notice period ‎for ‎diabling ‎the ‎Applock DW profile during a Deep Work Stint is five minutes before the start time ‎of ‎disabling the ‎Applock ‎DW profile.‎
‎ ‎
‎(It can be noted that the aforementioned description of a Deep Work Stint includes inclusion of ‎break ‎x1's ‎that would not count as the work sessions. This allows.w to take breaks given that the rules ‎of the ‎Deep Work ‎Stint hold i.e. the phone (Infinix) remiains turned off and the DW Applock profile is ‎kept ‎activite as ‎constrained by the definition of the Deep Work Stint.) ‎
‎ ‎

This week I went through my storytelling class by T.J. and it was pretty awesome. I have not done every exercise. However, one of the biggest takeaways I got from the class was videoing my presentation and looking to see if there is anything I can improve or change. I have now done this with my pitch and it is getting better and better each day.

I also need to add the habit of summarizing the books you read. Reading is important,yet, without reflecting on and summarizing what you read, the information won't stick. Be accepting of this human nature. Focus on quality, not quantity.
