Food

As humans we have a very interesting relationship with food.  We have an intense need to always eat more.

Biologically we are just trying to survive. Our DNA believes we live in a world of scarcity and starvation, thus forces us to binge as much as possible then our fat cells store as much energy as they can.

The result is that we are all fat.

I guess we would need to re-engineer human DNA to put a stop to obesity.

Refactoring

Mike showed me how to refactor my Laravel recruiting application so that it would be testable yesterday. I have been working a few hours today and doing the actual refactor. I have a lot more to do!

Rocket League

I rarely have the opportunity to play games, but last night I bought Rocket League to go with my Xbox One and played it with Fletcher for a couple of hours. It was really nice to talk to Fletch over the headset while we battled other people in this rocket soccer game. Super fun!

Productivity

I find it helpful to track my productivity in my daily goals spreadsheet. Some of the recent areas I have been focused on are:

  • AdWords management

  • Team lead meeting
  • Management retreat
  • Kickoff meeting

  • SEO review

Dressing for Business

I find that I am one of the least fashion conscious people that I know. I generally only purchase new clothes once a year, and all of my shopping is done online on Gap-owned websites in the sales section. I spend probably $2-300 per year on my clothes. I want to look good, but I care far more about other things like personal fitness or growing my business. I feel like I just barely pass the minimum bar for casual business dress.
