Maja and I spent a productive week in Slovenia, ending with a nice party. We will stay here for another week and leave for a PictureOn festival in Austria.
We haven't visited any festival for a long time, so we look forward to attending this one.
The week was busy, but I made great progress on my projects.
Let's check some highlights of the Weirdo's week.
What are we working on?
On Friday, we launched a fantastic new NFT project New World Guardians. If you want to learn more about it, you are welcome to check their website https://newworldguardians.com/ or even leave your email if you want to stay up to date on the upcoming drop of the first NFT collection.
We are responsible for the community and excited to be part of this project and support their social cause.
After waiting for a couple of months, our Helium Bobcat 300 Routers finally arrived.
Helium is building a decentralized IoT Network, where the community is helping to develop the network and getting rewards for the support. The whole network is based on a proof of coverage (PoC) - Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm that uses radio waves to validate the Hotspots' Wireless Network Coverage.
Our goal is to set them up in the upcoming days, start mining, become part of the network, and help it grow.

Traveling, what's next?
We are staying in Slovenia, more precisely in Novo Mesto. This month is dedicated to family and friends before we fly to Bangkok.
Novo Mesto is Maja's hometown, located in the South-East part of Slovenia. It's surrounded by a lot of forests and vineyards, so it's always lovely to return here to fill up the batteries in nature and our bellies with home-made wine that Maja's brother produces. 😉
Next week we will return to Austria to spend time with my family.
Things to think about
Sometimes it is good to declutter your life a bit to make space for new ideas, people, yourself, and your loved ones. Here are some lines from James Clear to think about:
Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is eliminate the task.
Downsize. The rooms you don't have, don't need to be cleaned.
Donate. The items you don't own don't need to be organized.
Delete. The projects you don't take on don't need to be finished.
Is this a problem that needs to be solved? Or is it a problem that can be eliminated all together?
Tool of the week
Discord - I found Discord in 2020 when I was looking for a tool to organize a remote birthday party for Maja. Since then, is one of the tools that I use daily. We even build our community on Discord. If you are not part of it yet, you can join here for free.
We are still going strong with some of the habits that we successfully build. Here are some of my current streaks.
469 days of daily language learning on Duolingo (currently Spanish)
463 days of daily meditation with Headspace
Both Duolingo and Headspace are part of my morning routine. It's important to start the day strong and prepare for a productive day. I'm working on adding stretching to my routine as an additional healthy habit.
