Here is another weekly review. I attempt to share goals and ideas from the previous week. 


I am still reading My Utmost for His Highest. The entry from Thursday, October 21, 2021, spoke to me the most. 

The entry spoke about being a disciple over impulsiveness. 

“Walking on water is easy to someone with impulsive boldness, but walking on dry land as a disciple of Jesus Christ is something altogether different.”

My Utmost for His Highest

Physical Health

I’ve had a rough week with lifestyle changes. 

I’ve started intermittent fasting on some days, which has helped. But, the times that I do eat, I’ve been eating a little more than necessary. 

On the exercise side, I have continued the minor changes.

I weigh 280 lbs, with a three-pound increase from last week. 

Weight loss: 5 pounds 

Mental Health

I’ve continued practicing daily prayer, journaling, and meditation. 

This week was off, and I mediated later in the day. I journaled at the end of the day as well. I felt a difference when compared to doing the routine in the morning, but not bad. 


The Apple Reminders to-do list strategy held firm for another week. 

The critical tasks journal worked as well this week. I still 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. It’s a long, exhaustive listen but has good insights.

This week I began reading Understanding Show, Don’t Tell: And Really Getting It by Janice Hardy.

After the feedback I received from an early draft of a children’s book I wrote, I found this book.

It’s a great, short read that dives into great tips to improve writing.

Quote of the week: 

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”

Alan Watts

I found an interesting article from PsyPost, People From Higher Socio‑Economic Backgrounds Often Exhibit Lower Emotional Intelligence: Study.

I wrote a post on this topic as well. I found this to be an intriguing risk as many pursue the American Dream.
