Here is my weekly review. I attempt to share goals and ideas from the previous week.
I was still reading My Utmost for His Highest. The entry from Friday, October 15, 2021, spoke to me the most.
The entry spoke about sharing Christ without basing it on our experience.
But Paul did not say, “Woe is me if I do not preach what Christ has done for me,” but, “…woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!”My Utmost for His Highest
I maintained lifestyle changes to eat better and improve exercise. I haven’t been perfect this week, but I’ve made progress.
I’m still cutting portions instead of eating my usual amounts.
On the exercise side, I have continued the minor changes.
I weigh 277 lbs with no change from last week.
Weight loss: 8 pounds*
I’ve continued practicing daily prayer, journaling, and meditation.
When doing this routine in the morning and I notice my days are relaxed. Something about not starting my days looking at emails or social media makes for a more relaxed day.
The Apple Reminders to-do list strategy held firm this week. I find it easier to keep track of missable tasks when I add to my reminders.
The critical tasks journal worked well this week. I want to work on better identifying essential tasks. I don’t want to be busy for the sake of busyness, but instead, I want to take daily steps toward bigger goals.
Check out last week’s review if you want more details on how I set all this up.
I’m still listening to the audiobook from Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. However, It’s a long, exhaustive listen but has good insights.
On Friday, I wrote a post from the book on stepping back.

This week, I loved the article Zero percent market share by Seth Godin.
It’s a short read but hits the nail on the head. Focusing on a smaller audience is vital for any business.
I came across another interesting article from PsyPost, News avoidance during the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with better mental well-being.
I know we didn’t need a study to confirm this. Yet, I’ve seen the benefits of limiting exposure to the news and social media. It helps with a better mental disposition daily.
