The last week has been interesting.
I have made a lot of progress in some of the fields I was trying to work on. I have also learned a lot about what I want out of life, and maybe more importantly what I want out of the next 6 or so months.
One thing that has dramatically changed is I have been introduced to the idea of using youtube as a media to convey the knowledge I want to share with the world. I would like all posts that are not about me to feature a video component. I also would like to start some youtube channels. The youtube channel I am the most excited to start doing is a series where I will take things that I learn and break them down into a 10 minutes worth of youtube videos (most likely broken down into smaller videos for various reasons). I of course will start a channel for stuff from this blog as well.
I have also found some more material on learning spanish that I am very excited to start using. Here is a video series with four volumes in it to learn spanish and goes over all the grammar.
My new optimal strategy for learning a new langugage that I will test out soon is as follows
1. 1000-2000 most common words flashcards – Spanishpod101.com
2. Video Series on grammar
3. Pimsleur with duolingo
4. Live mocha to talk with native speakers
5. If you are in that country use a dating site to start practicing
I would like to move to start a new start up that I have been thinking about for awhile, however I think I am going to postpone this till I get some traction with youtube and this blog.
I have also downloaded a dvd on how to dance salsa and would like to outline a practice method which I will upload here.
Goals for the week
I would like to by the end of week have a one pager of most important things to know for both spanish and salsa.
Continue will all long term learning tasks (which I have been).
Try and do Yoga everyday, and learn more about salsa (in the future do a one pager on this). Last week I did yoga 5 out of 7 days.
Continue to try and meditate every day, last week I did this 5 out of 7 days.
Get a new workout plan started and find the optimal workout plan.
Outline my first video for both the learnin10 and the last post I did, try and get at least the last post video filmed.
Thoughts on last week
Its really hard to do yoga or meditate when I drink the night before.
