Limbo

I have not written a word September 25, 2018. Well, that is not entirely true. I have updated a few words on my site. I guess that is considered writing?

Creatively, I have been in death valley. I have been dabbling with a writing project or six, but nothing happens. I have been reminiscing about photography, but I have not picked up my camera. I have started sketching, but it’s sporadic at best.

I have been staring at these writing projects for a few months:

  • How will India use artificial intelligence to improve its society?
  • How will China use artificial intelligence to redefine its economy?
  • How will the US use artificial intelligence redefine its' sole as a Superpower?
  • How artificial intelligence will make Universal Basic Income Necessary?
  • What will be the "future of work" in the face of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
  • How does a leader inspire people to do the things that inspire them?

I have purchased Udemy writing classes, and have not completed one:

  • Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer
  • Punctuation Mastery
  • Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery
  • Secret Sauce of Great Writing
  • Editing Mastery: How To Edit Writing To Perfection

I want to become a contributing writer to these publications, but I have not tried:

  • Entrepreneur
  • HBR
  • Inc
  • Fast Company

Reading

I have read:

  • Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou — good book
  • Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek — good book
  • Brief Answers To Big Questions by Stephen Hawking — amazing book

I am reading:

The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Green — amazing book

Emotional and Physical Health

I had a health scare in 2018. It made me understand two things: 1. tomorrow is not guaranteed and 2. when I die I want to die with no regrets. So I am planning an emotional and physical health project:

  • HIIT Training -- short intervals of extremely high-intensity exercise
  • Meditation
  • Plant food based diet

It’s going slow, but every day I am taking small steps to get healthier.
