Adrian’s Monday Starter : 46

What I’m reading : What’s the problem with feminism? by Mark Manson

What I’m listening to: All About Bugs: TMSIDK

What I’m watching: The Good Place on Netflix — This show is easy to watch. A little bit on the fluffy side. But I’m constantly intrigued about how they want to navigate what “good” and “bad” mean in the world. And I don’t think they’ve worked it out yet. I am a tad annoyed by the portrayal of the Filipino character. He appears immature and stupid throughout the show.

A quote I’m pondering on: “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” — Lao Tzu

Go see: Battle of the Sexes — Great performances all around. Relevant viewing for an Australian audience too.

What I’m watching: Designated Survivor on Netflix — I can’t help it!

A quote I’m pondering on: ”When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” — Lao Tzu

Go see: School Life — A wonderful reminder that teachers are indeed the only heroes we need in our everyday lives. This documentary is charming and touching with some beautifully-captured moments.

What I’m reading : What’s the Point of Self-Improvement Anyway? by Mark Manson

What I’m listening to: The Demonization of Gluten by Freakonomics Radio — This is good!

What I’m watching: Star Trek Discovery on Netflix — Omigosh I didn’t think I’d be hooked on this show. I’m not a Star Trek fan at all but this is really good viewing. We watched 3 episodes in a row and had to stop because my 11 year old son had to go to bed! 

A quote I’m pondering on: “You can become successful at something without having much particular talent at it. But you can never become successful at anything without taking action. Ever.” — Mark Manson

What I’m reading : The “Do Something” Principle by Mark Manson — How motivation really works! Omigosh this is genius. Thank you Mr Manson.

What I’m listening to: Classical music, specifically Beethoven and Bach.

What I’m watching: Intermittent Fasting with Jason Fung

A quote I’m pondering on: “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” — Seth Godin. 

Go see: Thor Ragnarok — This is an enjoyable popcorn movie even though I wasn’t sure whether it needed to be a lot more serious throughout. It did feel like my family and I were the only ones laughing in the cinema.

What I’m listening to: Favorite Books, Supplements, Simple Technologies, and More by Tim Ferriss

A quote I’m pondering on: Be genuine. Be remarkable. Be worth connecting with.” — Seth Godin (I don’t know why I find this so freaking hard to do! Please tell me how Seth Godin!)

This week was spent doing a lot of… not much. Well at least nothing else that I think warrants a journal entry. :-(
