During this period, Liban started editing yesterday’s work. He wants to make this a routine, editing yesterday’s work. He also desires to journal about security and politics, also edit the work next day, thereby building materials to be edited twice before publishing.
Liban exercised and edited materials during this period. He will start preparations for the day and present short religious presentation in multiple languages, also to be edited next day before passing two more editing for final publications.
Liban’s mood is not great m, titling towards morose. He wants to be thriving again, and he not doing that yesterday, suggesting lying back on bed for a longer period is not conducive to thriving. He wants to thrive, so be it. He will do tai chi, prayers and meditations
0630-0830, these two hours, Liban did an excellent presentation. 0830-0900; during this time, he finished writing the presentation. 0900-1000, during this period, he was in pain, headache despite eating Tylenol; so, he distracted himself to forget about the pain, unconsciously
1000-1120 ; Liban spent about 20 minutes meditating; the rest of the time he was resolving some billing issues. And then he wanted to know about an interpreter who gave wrong interpretation to a tourist in Tanzania; the interpretation was hilarious. He learned nothing from it.
Liban suspects the pain on his left side may be due to lack of focused activities; as he focuses, he expects, pain will decrease and finally disappear. He will document this today.
Liban has forced himself to edit old works for 52 minutes. He did. He will take break now and then do another session.
1130-1530, that is about 4 hours. Liban has finished one session of work (52 minutes) , after two short sessions of sleep( 40 minutes total ), that is about 2 hours. Again he slept longer about 1.5 hours. Then he spent another about 20 minutes browsing for no apparent reason.
He did longer sleep to cure his headache; that was not good strategy, to use sleep to cure headache. This desire for sleep may be originating from being on the bed working, since he associates it with sleep. He will use another spot to work while lying on the back
He will also introduce taking a walk outside periodically to get fresh air, tolerate the pain and work; also figure out why it does not happen when he is working and happens only or often when he works at home.
1630, 1530-1630, Liban did some editing and posted some tweets. Otherwise, he returned back to being distracted. Distraction being his major challenge. He will employ various relaxation strategies, including moving and sitting techniques to prevent from distraction.
1630-2000, apart from few administrative tasks, Liban spent most of the time sitting in his car, browsing his phone, while buying or transporting groceries. He forget about his pain and pain is gone gradually.
He did not want to remember his pain so he distracted himself; attempts to stop this did not succeed. He needs new strategies to remain fully focused for a longer period of time, otherwise he will continue to report failures.
This also tells him that interpretation of events is something done by his unconscious mind; it is sort of things that occurs to him after exposure to some materials. This is what he wants to tap into.

Liban woke up and spent 25 minutes listening to comedy and re-listening to his old podcasts. He did not desire to do this: he did not stop it . He learned, to re-listen to them & write shorter notes about them. Failure to focus though is a challenge that he will deal with today.
Liban spent the next 6:30-9:30 am, three hours, preparing himself for the day, preparing presentations and delivering it. The presentation took about 2 hours. There was a period where he was lost. During his presentation, he was emotional, getting close to crying.
1048,Liban is lying down while working on computer on a desk for bed; Liban was getting sleepy due to his association with the bed and sleep. He took 17 minutes of nap; he still wants more. He will not do it. He will compete 25 minutes of work remaining from 52 minutes of work.

Liban has not been taking breaks. Liban dreamed last night of visiting his hometown, Mogadishu; the city did not know each other, some parts developed and others are in Stone Age. He was arrested by Ethiopian officer close to Villa Somalia, after he was walking around the area.
He called people for help, calling the name of his clan; non came; people minded their business. Liban asked the officer why he arrested him and he simply suggested that he has the power to do so. After long argument, the officer decided to leave Liban alone. Liban left.
0839, Liban feels changed by optimal breathing method that he had been using; he plans to use it more; he slept 8 hours, exercised on time and feels great. It seems finally he has managed to form productive routines and maintain them.
