Week of 14 Feb: review

Hey, look, this is an actual on time weekly review post! Wonders will never cease.

Thinking back, even though quite a bit got done this week (including work launching a thing, something I had almost nothing to do with), I still sort of feel like I’m not making a lot of progress on longer term goals. The day-to-day stuff is feeling fairly solid by now, which is good, but I continue to fail to have a lot of movement on longer term things, and I’m not sure the format I’ve been using for this is really supporting me in getting more done.

So, let’s try to shake things up a bit – instead of listing big long-term things and then documenting my non-existent to minimal progress on them, I’m going to list just a couple concrete things that will advance these longer term goals, and I’m going to commit to having them done by the time I do another post next week. Hopefully the need to not look like a gigantic failure will provide motivation – let’s see!

Goals for the coming week:

There. Three very concrete goals, all of which are highly doable within the next week. Check back next Sunday to see whether or not this provides me the motivation I so clearly need, and please – do heckle mercilessly on Twitter or Facebook or via email or whatever if I don’t accomplish these. You know I’d do it for you.

(Oh! I almost forgot – cool thing I heard this week - The Shade by Metric. On the one hand, I kinda wish Spotify would find something other than New Wave-ish stuff to throw in my discovery playlist; on the other hand, as long as the stuff it keeps throwing in there keeps being so damn catchy, do I really care…)
