This week wasn’t a great one. I was dealing with a headache on most of the days. But the best part was going for a farewell treat of a friend which helped me relax a bit.
Review of Week 13
1.Book of the week: The power of intention
I was not able to complete it since I had to read other books too for writing my book. But if there is one new thing I learnt from this book is – Intention is a feeling which will tell you what to pursue and what to leave. This one sentence is different from the concepts I read from every other book on positive thinking.
2.Course of the week: Positive Psychology – Resilience Skills
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Even though a few topics (cognitive distortions and gratitude) were already known to me, the way course was presented and the part on strengthening relationships was amazing.
3.Habit of the Week: Fear tracker
A lot of my fears are something which I don’t know how to face them right now. But I believe that when time comes, I would have become strong enough to face them.
I wrote a bit more than 1000 words on a few days. I am happy with the progress I have been making.
Challenges for Week 14
1.Book of the week:
I don’t have any particular book in my mind. I will need to read different chapters from different books for gaining some knowledge to write for my book. So I don’t want to pressurize myself with sticking to the completion of a single book.
2.Course of the week: Science of happiness
There is another course on positive psychology on coursera but the syllabus does not seem that interesting for me at this point. Instead, I want to move to edx to do the course on happiness.
3.Habit of the Week: Rate my activities
I had been trying a lot of different things in past 3 months but I am not sure about the amount of happiness I have been deriving from them. So at the end of the day, I am going to rate the activities on a scale of 1-10 ( 1 being lowest and 10 being highest) under headings happiness, growth, pain.
For example, Writing is the task and it gives me happiness of rating 5. The rating and the heading might differ for the same task tomorrow.
I need to increase the number of words per day to 1500 now to close the writing part of the book by next week. A lot of time will go in editing and rewriting.
That is all for the next week.
