Quote of the year

“There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself.”

― Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings

Biggest struggles

One of my struggles is to get out of my comfort zone often enough. I struggle sometimes to go and simply talk with others. I struggle to go out and be with people. My other challenge is how to prioritize the many projects I would like to work on. I need to filter my ideas and say “no” to many things and to some people. I’m focusing on the important onces which bring result. 

Time tracking

You can find my time report below. As you can see it only starts in July and it might not be 100% correct, however, it gives me an overview of the time I’ve spent writing my first and second book (in progress) and the time I’ve spent on learning new skills and on my website and related activities. I only share the overview, the main categories, although I can dig deeper and have more details, you can see this on the right side as time entries are shown for the books. I highly recommend that you use toggl or a similar tool to track your time, it has great benefits and gives a good overview.

What are the tools which are using to plan your new year? How do you keep your resolutions if you have them?
