  • 2018 Goals

    I really should start writing one of these during the regular part of the day. I’m starting this at 2AM and I have to get up in a few hours, but I love the idea of getting this done. It’s still 2017 for crying out loud, I might actually get this thing sorted out without […]

  • 2017 In Review

    It looks like this blog is probably only going to be updated around the New Year every year if I keep this up. Hopefully I’ll do better, but at this point I’m not making any promises. Anyway, it’s time to look back at the year and do some analysis on what I did and didn’t […]

  • 2017 Goals and Such

    This post has taken longer to generate than every previous goals post I think. It’s not the amount of time writing, I have no idea how long it’ll take, since I’m just starting now. No, I’ve spent quite a bit of time doing some serious evaluation of how I’m going to handle goals this year […]

  • January 2017 Plans

    Hey. I normally just do these notes for myself in Evernote, but I might as well post it. Disclaimer: Personal, unedited post. For me. Read if you like, but you might get frustrated. I am actually writing this in Evernote and planning on copying it over. If there’s anything too personal or sensitive, I’ll probably […]

  • 2016 In Review

    It took me a couple of days to get going on this again this year. I think that might be a recurring thing year to year. I did manage to keep up on updating this blog with my goals updates better than I did in 2015. The quarterly (or so) updates seem like the thing. […]

  • 2016 Q4 Goals Update

    Yep, missed the Q3 summary. That’s not really surprising since I really lost momentum not too long after the last update. I sort of don’t want to do this update because of that, but since I’m more on the ball now it would feel disingenuous to pass on it. Oh, also, since this is a […]

  • 2016 Q1 and Q2 Goals Update

    I’m a bit over a week late on this, but on the “quarter” scale that’s fine, right? Standard warning: personal post, lots of annoying details, lots of meandering, lots of parentheticals. I tend to write these things kind of freeform. You’ve been warned. Quarter 1 Summary All in all, I’m moderately happy with how Q1 […]

  • Goals Overhaul and Refocusing

    What? It’s barely been over a month and the goals are changing? Last year I was actually more successful than this blog seemed to imply. That’s because I didn’t keep things up to date. I’m glad I started out with something last month since it got and kept me going, but I wasn’t really inspired […]

  • Fighting Through Energy Drains – The Last Few Weeks

    I’d already written a version of this post, but it looked too much like complaining. Instead, I’m going to try to do some good old self-analysis and see how I can handle this better in the future. Be warned, this post wanders quite a bit. Where I’ve Been I had made a pretty significant commitment […]

  • 2016 Direction and Habit development

    This is kind of a follow-up post from the 2016 Goals post. In it, I talked about how this year when I was planning, I came up with mostly things that weren’t really goals, but more of directions or habits to form. Now, I ended up actually scraping some measurable goals out of that list, […]
