Weekly Update: May 27 - June 2, 2019
I’m going to keep it brief this week. I’m feeling kind of lazy. I finished a book, The Hard Thing About Hard Things, and a course, Using React Hooks. The book was full of lessons that would be useful for CEOs of companies. I’m not sure there was a lot of takeaways for me. I liked that Bill Campbell, the focus of The Trillion Dollar Coach, was everywhere throughout the book. Campbell’s reach is astounding. The course was great but I just audited the material. I really like what I’ve seen from React Hooks. Now I just need to sit down and spend some time with it. Hooks looks like a major improvement on the way state is handled in React components.

This week I’m not going to commit to anything for Dev-eryday. I’m sure I’ll be active, but it’s not going to be a priority. I’ve committed to a new monthly challenge for June that I’m calling “Drenched June.” The concept is simple, every day of the month I will workout hard enough to get drenched. We’re two days into June and I’m two for two far. It’s going to be a fun month. The increased physical activity is going to raise the mind to new heights.
