Now

Every month I’ll make a Personal Development Project (PDP). A PDP is a 30-day creative project that has two goals in mind: self-improvement and professional advancement. 

A PDP has a theme, an overview, deliverables and an outline of weekly goals.

Personal Development Project – From November 06 to December 03 (4 weeks)

Books that I’m reading now

  • SuperBetter by Jane McGonigal
  • How to Read a Book by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren

Book that I’m listening on Audible

  • Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss – Finished Listening on November 16

1. Overview

This project is centered on creating content and gaining ability to expose myself to the world (overcome the fear of shipping and camera).

I’m constantly improving my organizational system by using softwares, apps and tools, like Google Calendar, Google Keep, Evernote, Toggl, Noisli, Todoist, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. I’ll create video tutorials about them and teach how they fit on my routine.

The videos will be in Portuguese because I’ll share with colleagues from work and college.
