Got this Kindle book on Cyber Monday after filtering through 400 books (and purchased 20 😂). I was first introduced to the Pomodoro from Barbara Oakley's "Learning How To Learn" course on Coursera, but this guide went a bit more in depth. The simplest way to describe the Pomodoro Technique is to single focus on study/work for 25 minutes, then take a small break/reward and work in 25 minute chunks, or "Pomodori". 🤓 Anyway, it's time to get back to work! #athletelife #readmore #learnmore #domore #booksoverTV #nerd #idontcare #pomodoro

Got my head up in the clouds (literally). On the way to Cardiff for the Welsh International Challenge later this week. I usually set a monthly goal and I think I'll try to set one for "Don't complain" for December. November was to "Do things now" as I was finding I kept putting off my priorities 😓 I often lead by example, although that is not usually the intention. I even feel leading is an exaggeration as I just want to go and do what I want/need to do. However, when I reflect, perhaps I often make the mistake of holding others to my own standards, and that is a terrible mistake to do. Perhaps a month of not complaining and accepting people as they are will help me build this habit 😳 "Never complain, never explain." - Benjamin Disraeli ✌

Being alone is relative💁. Having a Scottish breakfast and ☕ while reviewing K. Anders Ericsson's book "Peak" makes a wonderful Sunday morning. For those who don't know, he is one of the people behind that "10 000 hour rule" that Malcolm Glad well adapted and made popular. Ericcson's book focuses on deliberate practice and critiques the 10 000 hour concept 🤓🤓 However, I must remind myself that if I want space, others may need their own too at times. Funny how things are not always what they seem 🤔🤔 #athletelife #reflections #scottishbreakfast #blackpudding #restandrecovery #flyingsolo

Learning how to use Excel a little more, as my interest in data analytics is growing! Here is a 5 month hydration log, which I have tracked on my own. The first intervention was a financial punishment, whereas the second intervention was using an app where I would water a plant and if I didn't drink water, it would die. In the end, I can say I value life over money as the 2nd intervention appears to be working a bit better 😂😂😂 #athletelife #badminton #dataanalysis #excel #drinkmorefluids #wateryourplants #itsnotalwaysaboutmoney

When your internet dies but you hope it stays that way until you finish your game or else you lose your high score... 😂😂😂 🐲🌵

Excited for dinner! Miso using with chicken, tofu, and veggies!
