A quote I’m pondering on: “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” — Seth Godin. 

Go see: Thor Ragnarok — This is an enjoyable popcorn movie even though I wasn’t sure whether it needed to be a lot more serious throughout. It did feel like my family and I were the only ones laughing in the cinema.

What I’m reading : 5 Time-Saving Productivity Hacks, Reviewed by Andy Bowen - I particularly love “Replacing to-do lists with a schedule”. Because I do this already. I schedule what I need to do for the day instead of creating a list. I even include times and a deadline for the completion of a task. Yay for me!

A quote I’m pondering on: When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves.’ — Lao Tzu

Go see: Bladerunner 2049 - An intelligent and artful film. Like the original, this movie is not for everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was constantly lost in the cinematography and the stunning soundtrack. Mind blowing. Impeccably crafted and executed, it holds on to the original but also creates something beautifully new. I have to see it again.

What I’m listening to: You Say “eye-RACK,” I Say “ear-ROCK by Tell Me Something I Don’t Know

What I’m watching: The Avenger movies with my son. I didn’t realise the first Iron Man (in this Marvel series) was released in 2008 when he 2 years old. And did you know that the first Thor movie (in the same franchise) came out in 2011! 

A quote I’m pondering on: Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. — Lao Tzu

Go see: Beatriz at Dinner — This film is promising but has a strange ending that I found lacked any kind of redemption. Selma Hayek is fantastic and the discomfort it creates is worth a watch.
