So far so good.

As the title says, so far so good.
This first 7 days of 2017 have been quite good and I’m really pleased with the result so far.

How was your first week of the year by the way?
Done anything noteworthy? Really curious to know what you’re up to in this 2017. It’s always inspiring to see what other people are doing with their lives so, please, let me know if you feel like.

Ok where were we? Oh yes, the first week.


My goal of waking up at 5am every day is perfectly on track. Woke up at 5 all week and I feel great. It’s incredible how productive can you be when you have plenty of time in the morning. This habit is gonna be harder to maintain once I’ll be back on the basketball court because I tend to go to bed really late on Wednesday and get up at 5 the next morning is gonna be quite a challenge but we’ll see.

I also finished reading and listening the first book and audiobook of the year.

The book I finished is Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom and the audiobook is Why Information Grows by César Hidalgo.

Both quite good, both on very interesting topics. The AI problem is a challenging one and it is fascinating and a bit frightening at the same time. Had Superintelligence on my reading list for about a year (😱) and I’m really happy that I finally found the time to finish it.

Already started reading The Dictator’s Handbook and listening to The Undoing Project.

I’m adopting a nice approach with the books. I divide the total number of pages in small chunks (I know books come in chapters but those are not neatly divided), 21 chunks to be precise.

Why 21? 7 days a week, 3 times a day. I’m trying to read something in the morning, at lunch and late at night, before going to sleep.

If I don’t skip a single one of those 21 chunks I can ready a book every week which is really great.

As for the blog, well as you can see I managed to find the time to write the post number 1 so I’m on track.

Work and Projects

From a work perspective has been a good week. Not amazing but for sure a positive one.

I coded my new site, finished the landing page for the Designed Space project I’m working on with my friend Mike, and shipped the new site for Fabio Lamanna. Also coded my blog and made progress on another few side projects.

See you next week

So I guess that’s it for this first week of 2017. I have a few thought in mind I’ll probably share with you next week.
