Quarantine — Day 79

Books and books

This post is part of an ongoing series in which I document my journey through the COVID-19 quarantine. See Day 1 for full context.

Quick update

I wanted to have a full day of reading. Apart from journaling and cooking, I managed to read for like 6 hours, and I felt good about it. This is what I’m reading:

  • Tribe of Mentors, Tim Ferriss
  • Can’t Hurt Me. David Goggings.
  • 21 lessons for 21 century. Yuval Noah Harari.

I also reflected on success, why I consider myself to be successful, how I define success and what I’m willing to strive for in my next years. Details are kept private, but overall it means freedom (professional, economic), stick to my values, help people with a lot of material, and have great relationships.

Main takeaway: Success, for me, should be measured inwards, not outwards.
