Week of 17 Jan: review

(Aside: I need to figure out a way to title these that isn’t going to drive me nuts and isn’t a complete ripoff of Allen’s week number scheme. What I’ve got now isn’t it.)

So, let’s see how we did on those goals last week, eh?

  • Be more intentional: I declared OmniFocus bankruptcy and started re-populating based on my current commitments, but it was way more of a struggle to do that than it should have been. Giving myself a ‘D’ on this one this week.

  • Re-develop exercise routine: I did squat here. Solid ‘F’ on the week.

  • Speak at 3 events: I got the news that the talk I submitted to DCBPW was accepted, so that’s good. I intended to submit to a number of new CFPs this week, but didn’t get any further than looking past the open tabs. Another ‘D’.

  • Revive my blog and make at least 2 posts / month: This is the second post so far this month, assuming it’s not totally cheesy to count this as distinct from the previous post (it’s totally cheesy). Rating this one a ‘B’.

  • Learn C# and Swift: I bought a(nother) Swift book and read a few pages in it. Didn’t make any progress on C# to speak of. Giving this one a very generous ‘C’.

  • Fix up landscaping on front and west side of the new house: Not quite the season to start with this work yet. Did spend some time thinking about what the landscaping might end up looking like. Grade: N/A.

  • Build brick path from back door to office door: In a holding pattern, waiting on both the weather and the office renovation work. Grade: N/A.

  • Host one dinner party a month: Zero progress here, for another solid ‘F’.

Not really a great first week with this new system, but this means there’s nowhere to go but up, y/y?

Next update should happen this upcoming Sunday (the 31st); please apply virtual asskickings if that doesn’t happen.
