Currently working a stand at Marketing Week Live. Hustle dialed up to 11.

I'm currently reading James Clear's book "Atomic Habits". It seems really well argued and actionable. He's currently comparing "motion" vs "action" - feeling like you're moving vs actually achieving stuff. He's got me nailed: "... the biggest reason why you slip into motion rather than taking action: you want to delay failure".

Today was a reminder of the importance of fully engaging with life. Had lunch with friends from college; such warm, engaging people. Not a phone in sight, just talk, attention and lovely food. Makes me realise how much time can drip away wasted.

Rant email to PPLPRS complaints department now sent. Wonder how many months before they'll get back to me?

has anyone worked through "How to Design Programs" book? especially the 2nd edition? Is it worth one's time?

I want to get better and faster with programming and be able to learn new programming languages quickly, and it seems like understanding underlaying concepts (also via this book) can help with that.

When I got up this morning, I put on gym kit as I commitment device to promise myself I'd do some weights. After spending most of the day on tax returns, it worked - I finally managed it! Just under the wire.

If you enjoy my posts about #wrenching on my old truck engine rebuild project, please consider boosting this message. I'd love to find more people on the fediverse who are mechanically inclined and can share advice. Due to the decentralized nature, it's not as easy to find niche interests.

To anyone who doesn't know, I'm slowly rebuilding my 1965 GMC 1000 pickup. Right now I have the engine pulled. It's been machined, and I'm reassembling. I have a long road ahead.

Been mining the back catalogue of Soul Music on BBC iPlayer. Really powerful episode about God Only Knows by the Beach Boys, such an emotionally complex song and some sad tales.

Today has been mostly a bed day. Sadly this has involved disassembly and construction rather than lying in one. Two happy daughters though, so no complaints!

On-point advice from @selfcare just now; I went ahead with my 10 mile run this morning and finished in one piece. There was indeed some running full-tilt!

Have you been running full tilt today? Take a few moments to recharge.

I'm supposed to be doing a 10 mile race tomorrow, but I'm in two minds as to whether I should run or not. My training was thrown 2 weeks ago (hurting calf), and I'm wondering if it would be foolhardy running it now. Guess can always bale out half way...

I enjoy things like running, and recently signed up for a local 10 mile run at the end of December. This is much further than I've done before (I have a half marathon in mind for the future), but the training has been so much more fun than I expected! Late night runs in the cold are made so much better with a decent head torch and to keep me going... Any users out there fancy connecting?

This evening was my first orchestra rehearsal in ages. It is hard to fit in logistically with family etc, but I must make the effort as music is a part of me.
