2018 Week 5 Challenge

Week 4 was a week of studying. I read my advanced psychology books and made notes. It was so insightful.

Review of Week 4

 

1.Book of the week: Thank you for arguing

It really taught me how to argue. It is a book with step by step instructions and examples of conversations on how to speak. Since I was making notes, I was not able to finish it.

 

2.Course of the week: Influencing people

 

I made good use of my commute time in doing this course. It explains the power of influence with social experiments.

 

3.Habit of the Week: Thought Tracker

 

Thought tracker is not as simple as emotions tracker. I found it difficult to capture all of them in a proper format. I need to devise different ways to make a note of thoughts. Then I will be able to see which one works the best.

 

4.Exercise Routine:

 

I have a little satisfaction on this for this week.

 

5.Socializing

 

The people who I made friends with are now coming to my desk to talk with me. This is the second milestone in socializing.

 

Challenges for Week 5

 

1.Book of the week: Everybody writes

 

I read a part of this book before but I could not make notes. As I want to improve my writing style, I will read this book and make a checklist.

 

2.Course of the week: Influencing people

 

I will finish off the final week and make an action list on how to implement what I learnt.

 

3.Habit of the Week: Free writing

 

Everyday, I will set 15 minutes aside and write whatever comes to my mind. It can be about anything which makes sense or does not make sense.

 

4.Exercise Routine:

 

I will continue the same.

 

5.Socializing

 

Socializing has been an exciting challenge. I am not sure what should the next milestone be. I will just keep talking which alone is in my control.

 

6.Writing

 

It is very stressful to write daily. I want to take a break this week and write only when it is feasible.

 

7.Language Learning

 

I will listen to radio for around ten minutes and write down at least one sentence.

8.Organise

 

It is a pain to search for clothes every morning. I will plan the clothes for the week on Sunday so that I don’t feel frustrated in the mornings.

 

That is all for the next week.

Happy Week 5!
