Muay Thai + BJJ

I've started taking Muay Thai classes after diving into a rabbit hole around the history of the UFC. Interestingly enough, it's been a positive influence on my work. Constraints with my schedule forced me to be more intentional with my time. Early last month, I also started doing BJJ. The classes are right next to each other.

Meal Prepping

My diet sucks. It's a bigger shame since my nutritional IQ is relatively high. So I've decided to practice what I preach and actually measure/cook my food in batches. It's quite nice, to be honest. There's no cooking during the week, and I eat a solid amount of food.

A New Skill Every Month

A friend and I have planned to learn one new skill every month. Last month, we started by doing a woodworking project with epoxy resin. As a result, I made a serving tray made out of live-edge wood and resin. Next up was blacksmithing. Pro tip: be careful when near a furnace...it's hot!

Skin Care

I grew up with severe eczema and sunscreen allergies. Historically, it's made me apathetic when it comes to caring for my skin. But coming back from a sunny vacation and a research rabbit hole, I learned about the importance of moisturizing and sunscreen. As a result, I've set up a minimalist skincare routine (which is much better than no routine at all).

6-Week Plans

A few weeks ago, I set up grand 5-year OKRs. Around the same time, I read It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work, by the Basecamp partners. Rather than setting lofty goals, they set up 6-week cycles where small groups try to budget their work. As per the book, humans are terrible at estimation but good at budgeting. I'm experimenting with applying the Basecamp model to my own life.
