I didn't work on the newsletter for the past two weeks. So sorry for the people who were waiting for it. It was tough to build the habit when things got busy in the other part of life. It's even more complicated when I try to pick up the speed. So here is this week's short newsletter.

I need to spend more time collecting my thoughts, and I probably gonna walk about this more next time.
