Are you productive outside of work?

Lately kasi madalas paglogout ko diretso na ako sa room, then just crash in my bed and spend time online. Tinatamad na magjogging o magluto at nagpapadeliver na lang. At kapag niyaya magkape o mamasyal, usually pass na lang muna. 

Nakakaguilty din, to think na 10 minutes lang ang layo ng office namin sa bahay ko, samantalang ang iba, usually sa Pinas, they spend hours commuting, at pagdating ng bahay, marami pang nagagawa. Naaamaze ako dun sa kakilala ko na parent, siya at yung husband niya, super hectic ng sched. Pag-uwi nila, kukunin ang anak mamamasyal, o kaya aattend ng Bible Study or outreach sa embassy kung saan maraming kababayan ang stranded at may mga kaso, o may pupuntahan, maggogrocery for the family, basta palaging may lakad. Then nagagawa pa ang mga gawaing bahay. 

Dami kong gustong gawin, like magblog, gumawa ng videos, mag-crafts, more mission, mag-compose pa ng mga kanta, pero this year parang tamad-tamaran portion hahaha. Kasi usually, I give 110% effort sa work, hanggat may pending work, tinatapos ko talaga, kaya paglogout waley na ang energy. I remember last year, parang mga 2 months akong consistently nagising ng 5am, ang ganda pala sa pakiramdam. Parang andami kong nagagawa. Haays, try kong ibalik ang routine na yun starting tomorrow since August na.

    My work is flexible though my schedule is 9-5, sometimes I work outside of office hours. I can pretty much mix both work and personal matters any time of the day. 

    My house is 10 minute drive from work. So when I left the office in 5PM, I should be home by 5.10PM. Since it is summer here in our place, my kids and I will bond in our private pool for their swimming lesson, yes, I'm their swimming instructor. And I'm proud to say that all of them know how to swim now even my 4 y/o.  We should be finished by 7PM, cos the sun wont set until 8PM.

    Then I will prepare our dinner and baon ng kids for the next day. Cooking takes 1 hour so by 8PM, kids are ready to eat their dinner. 

    8.30-10PM is the time I guide my oldest son on his homeworks for Math and Science. 

    10PM, kids are in bed already. Me and my wife will clean up the kitchen, dining table and living room. 

    I do have regular telecon meeting with Asia between 6-8PM 3 times a week. In that case, I cut my swimming lesson short or I ask my wife to cook. But in most cases, I cook and attend telecon meeting at the same time.  

    It's always been busy. Not to mention our busy sched in the morning (6-9AM) So when I get a chance to travel, i do what TS is doing. Go to work and relax in the hotel.

    Kapag ganyan baka may clinical depression ka. Patingin ka.

    Ang aking araw-araw na routine, tulog bago 9 n.g. Gising ng 5 n.u. Manejo sa gym at workout ng isang oras. Uwi, ligo, bihis, almusal at pasok na sa opisina.

    Sa gabi nagluluto ng hapunan. Sinosobrahan upang may tira-tira para baunin sa opisina.

    Bandang tanghali naglalakad ako ng mga 40 minuto hanggang isang oras depende kung gaano katagal ang midday break. Kasama eto sa aking 10,000 step quota.

    Kapag weekend, 6 n.u. gising, lakad, workout sa gym, mamili ng pagkain at pangangailangan sa tahanan. May kaunting social events, atbp.

    Ganitong lifestyle ang magpapahaba sa aking buhay at magpapaganda sa quality of life. Iyong tutulog-tulog, hihiga-higa at lulong sa pagpapanood ng tv, iyan ang magpapa-ikli ng buhay at magpapapangit sa quality of life!

    'Ika nga, "eat less, move more, live life longer!"

    Of course. Tomorrow I'll be joining bowling & 9 ball billiards tournament in 313 Sommerset mall.
    During my off days I go to the gym, swim, cook, ride my MTB with friends, improve my Adobe Premiere & After Effects skills, play basketball, tennis and table tennis with friends and travel to other countries. When I don't come to work for OT, my colleagues would still call and consult me for some technical and system troubleshooting support. ;)

    i'm always outside of work and i can say that i am very productive.

    how much more if i'm inside of work?

    if you ask me what's my work, yung work na walang katapat na university/college degrees currently.

    at yan ay vulcanizing.

    yan ay hindi yung pagaayos ng goma.

    yan ay yung tignan lahat ng bulkan sa mundo.

    tignan lang.

    Kapag ganyan baka may clinical depression ka. Patingin ka.
    No, tang, I know what depression is, happened to me more than a decade ago, nung nasa Pinas pa ako. Yung parang hindi ka makagalaw at ayaw mo ng bumangon. And you have this cycle of sleeping and waking at parang hindi ka na aware ng time. Yup, I knew that too well. 

    This time, tamad-tamaran lang talaga. I have this tendency talaga na tamarin coz I grew up with allergic rhinitis, and although super bihira na akong atakehin ng rhinitis at sinusitis, I can feel yung mga nasal polyps na nandyan pa rin ang dahilan kung bakit minsan may antukin at tamad na aura. And ang totoo nyan, for the past 2 weeks, na-hook ako sa series na Merlin sa Netflix. Kung bakit kasi pinanood ko pa. Kaya ayoko talaga na manood ng mga series kasi alam ko pagna-hook ako, hindi pwedeng hindi ko tapusin talaga. So yun nga, nagmarathon ako at tinapos ko, at naapektuhan ako sa ending bes. hahaha. 

    Kaya never talaga akong manonood ng GOT kasi ayokong mahook at alam kong time waster sya. So Thursday today, at half day lang kami. Balak ko sana magjogging ngayon, kaya lang natulog ako kaninang 3pm, at kakagising ko lang. Haays. Bukas, since rest day, magjojogging na talaga ako sa hapon after ng church! Pramis!

    ^Watching GOT is worth the time, others? waste of time.

    Ano ba kayong mga single na OFW? Rambler, nikki, pong padour, yes, kayo nga! Kung alam niyo lang kung gaano ako naiinggit sa sitwasyon niyo. You have both the money and energy and there is NO reason to be depressed. I never had a depression until I became a father. 

    Siguro kung single pa din ako, I probably completed a master's degree from a reputable university abroad, merong mga 2-3 properties from from both my host country and Pinas, may atleast half a million dollars worth of retirement/investment kasi I maximized my retirement contribution, I may have my countoured abs cost I frequently exercise or regularly play my hobbies like basketball and tennis. But my single-hood maybe absolutely boring.

    Ang daming tukso pag single. Like going out with friends and splurge money from night outs, dating different girls, buying expensive gadgets and branded stuff to look good and taking luxury vacations. Living the life is costly.

    Sayang yung pagtatanim. Dream ko yan, yung magtanim ng iba't ibang gulay like papaya, okra, talong, kamatis, sibuyas, bawang, at sitaw. Recently ko lang nalaman, thru YouTube, na ang loofah pala ay isang tanim at ito ay walang iba kundi patola!

    Gusto ko rin mag-alaga ng mga hayop like kambing, baka, at manok, yung free range at hindi nakakulong. Wag lang siguro baboy kasi sobrang messy. hehehe...

    Naks, contoured abs. hahaha...

    Nah, masyadong highflyer yung mga goals mo, Kent. It's not that I stopped being ambitious, medyo nagflatline lang ang pananaw ko sa buhay now that I'm approaching my 40s. At this point, gusto ko na lang gumawa ng something really meaningful like reaching out more and spreading the love and truth of Jesus Christ. 

    Minsan naiisip ko yan, like for example, usually tambay ako sa alibaba gawa ng nature ng work ko. Naisip ko, bakit kaya hindi ko subukang magtrade sa alibaba, at in fairness marami din akong naiisip na mga products na pwedeng iexport from here. Then I would have the freedom na mag-aral pa at mag-invest pa more. Pero wag na, there are better things worth pursuing. Sa ngayon, ok na ako sa paminsan-minsang travel, at yung maliliit na hobbies. Hindi naman ganun kalaki bank account ko, gawa ng padala sa mga kamag-anak, missions, etc. but I feel so blessed that I'm on a solid financial footing. Kuntento na ako sa ganito. char

    Fell free to call it highflying. Siguro psychological lang din. If you're a father with bunch of mouths to feed, you will do everything what it takes to secure your family and you'll get every opportunity that knocks on you. What if I die today, what will happen to my kids? 

    So I totally understand you, kung tanging sarili mo lang binubuhay mo, what's the point going too far? You build wealth and then what? I would've thought of exactly the same thing had I not procreated.

    for now im on single mode...i joined a dating website, i got more than a hundred pending friend requests. they even send me cyber flowers, chocolates ans gifts...i dont need money so i dont bite into those, im not in a hurry, im happy like this for now...

    im loving the single life for actually, i missed it, even more than when i was in a relationship, especially the last one...mas nakakapagod, nakaka kunsume and nakaka drain ng life and energy,

    maybe a mismatch in culture. iba pa rin kung kapwa mo Filipino makatuluyan mo.

    anyway, i have 2 charities one for kids and animals, so i spend time with those, its not full time, voluntary naman, so go as you please. i  joined a fitness club, and cooking class for awhile after i broke up,with my gunggong na ex...pero i know how to cook naman and i can do workouts with co-workers so i stopped as nakaka pagod and ubos oras din.

    just doing chores, cleaning the yard and vaccuming the car already drain me. Rehab (my work) is the usual 8-5 job, so were off saturdays, and sundays, but it seems its not enough.

    we cook out with my friends on friday nights, saturday is clean and wash day, and sunday is shopping, grocery and mass day.

    its more than i can handle and this excludes my quarterly long weekend getaway trips. so im productive enough,

    good for you kent, most of my co-workers na guys, with families ganyan naman ang routine, its hard and monotonous, but i amdire fathers like that, 

    actually, the family first dads are the most appealing to me and my friends...mas attractive ang dads who prioritize their family, para kasing mga pari, mas nakaka tempt tuksuhin. :lol:

    not true na yung mga dads na active sa hobbies, vice and sports nila ang mas appealing, on the contrary, samin mas turn off.

    so keep it up. youre doing great.

    May phase ang pagiging naman ang dad. TatangJT is, but he has totally different routine than mine. Iba pag maliliit pa mga kids, iba yung demands nila, sobrang time consuming, you have to be there for them all the time. Unlike tatangJT na fully grown up na ang mga kids, he has adequate time to explore new hobbies and interests, to keep himself busy and healthy na din. Not that I wish sana maglakihan na agad sila but that's exactly something I look forward to maybe in 5-10 years.

    Generally, unproductive na talaga ako mapa-trabaho o hindi. Dati sobrang active ko sa galaan, hobbies and passion ko pero ngayon wala na talaga. Parang kulang ang time sakin.
