Sometimes it seems to me that sitting on the couch and watching television is a nice way to relax, but that is happening less often. I’ve realized that I actually feel better in general if I do something to improve myself. Here is a list of my favorite non-work activities at this point:

  1. Programming
  2. Outdoor rock climbing
  3. Reading non-fiction books
  4. Running
  5. Reading hacker news articles on my phone
  6. Eating healthy
  7. Getting enough sleep (prereq for life)
  8. Indoor climbing
  9. Playing a game like BrainWars on my phone

Favorite work activities:

  1. Programming
  2. Building new systems / structures
  3. Working with my team members / collaboration
  4. Team meetings
  5. Client calls / sales calls
  6. Answering emails
  7. Negotiating contracts
