Not much to report. I’m still in kind of an article reading slump (my backlog is larger than 50 right now).
The post-slide tiredness means my non-work hours are mostly devoted to non-brain work (playing and idly watching Netflix). The available brainpower I have focused in reducing my backlog of books: first by removing a bunch (around 40) and also by finishing some (here shows: I have finished 4 only this week). My “pending” list is now at 89 pending books. That’s around 3-4 years at my usual reading rhythm.
There are a lot of interesting things to get from this book, but I’d love an abridged version. There’s a lot of repetition that could be avoided. Part of it is to be expected (to hammer the message) but other is superfluous (repeating already mentioned events of their deployment in Iraq)
I have essentially ignored my piano for 2 months, while finishing slides of a talk. After finishing them (and having presented them twice already) I’ve been so drained that I have either read or played in VR on the now again available time. Hopefully this week I’ll have some energy back for it.
This has been (so far) the last of the books on the series that I read. All are very quick reads… full of annotations I have added. This was in paper, too: I didn’t remember you needed a marker to annotate paper books. Kindle is more convenient!
Following my trend of management/leadership books. This is kind-of-biographical, including experiences and tips found. Got some ideas from it, but they appear also elsewhere. Works well as an audiobook though, it’s a good listen.
