What I'm Doing Now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

Writing Daily

Every morning, for a minimum of thirty minutes, I write. I publish these writings on this blog or on my newsletter.

I use pen and paper. My favorite pen is Uni-ball Signo 207 blue and my favorite notebooks are Moleskine Classic Softcover Black A4 and Leitz Hardcover Pocket Notebook A6.

Currently, I'm giving a reMarkable2 a try to replace my notebook and pen. I don't think I will completely remove the old school style, but I want to remove the Moleskine A4 because of rewriting everything from notebook to computer is just time-consuming. I'm keeping my Leitz A6 to keep notes while I'm reading.

Leading Software Engineering Teams

Currently, I'm working as a Software Engineering Team Leader at Jimdo. My team is focused on providing payment capabilities to the company and consists of five amazing backend and full-stack engineers.

I'm also leading an external mobile team who maintains and improves our mobile apps (Android & iOS) at Jimdo.

Playing Bass Guitar Daily

After writing every morning, I play bass guitar for ~30 minutes. I'm learning notes on the neck in these days.

I have Yamaha TRBX504, Focusrite Scarlet 2i2, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro to enjoy all the music and I'm learning new stuff from TalkingBass.net.

Exercising

That's why I started exercising again to get into a shape and not hurt myself in winter snowboarding. This season, I will take some snowboarding lessons for the first time in my life. I've been snowboarding for a few years but never took a lesson.

I subscribed to Apple Fitness+ since they opened their services in Germany. The service is great. Having three levels of trainers (easy, med, difficult) during the workout is helpful. On top of that, having full workout in one session instead of videos of separate moves is great. I've been using Runtastic for years. Well, goodbye Runtastic. Apple Fitness+ feels more humane!

Podcasting

I finished the season of my podcast with the season finale episode that we have recorded about Machine Learning and Data Science. I'm currently taking a break to enjoy the work I put into the podcast.

The next season might be a bit different because I'm considering other formats. If you like a specific format, let me know.

Reading

For the last couple of years, I started cross-reading. That's why I read a few books at the same time. It takes longer to finish a book, but I don't care how many I read in a year, I care the value I get from them.

Currently, I'm reading Thanks for The Feedback, Radical Candor, The Wise Man's Fear, Make Time, Getting Things Done, and Influence by Robert B. Cialdini.

Next: The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle.

Family Time

I spend time with my wife whom I love and who is empathetic, beautiful, smart, sensual and loving–amazing human being.
