I’ve been really bad about keeping up with various blogs lately. I mean really bad! I’m months behind on several of my favorite blogs. So it should come as no surprise that I’m just now stumbling upon this post which I wanted to chime in on.
I’m not a stranger to stating public goals to here are my two things:
1. What do you want to get better at?
I could go on about a good dozen or so things that I am pretty horrible at. But if I had to narrow down just one thing, I would pin it on its this. I need to be better at going to bed. I know, it sounds really simple doesn’t it. You’re tired, go to bed. But I’m not that guy. Typically my wife will go to bed at 9:30⁄10 and I’m up still until 12, 1 and this week even 2 a few times. Sometimes it is work related (the 2AMs this week), but often times it is not. Sure dabbling with a side business can do that to you, but its not my main focus. And with a wee one due any day now, I need to get a LOT better at getting my sleep in.
2. What do you want to learn?
You’d think that I would put something here completely generic like ‘how to be a good dad’ or something along those lines with the little one on the way. No, I’m feeling fairly confident that I’m going to be a good dad. I know I have a lot to learn and I’m going to take advice where ever I can get it and filter it down. But this is one of those things that I’m completely clueless about, but just have a good feeling that things will work out.
What I want to learn is completely 100% job related and was part of my performance review. I want to get better at networks. Understanding, configuring, and talking about the various network concepts. I work at a company that has some very talented networking gurus. I want to learn more and feed off their knowledge. It will only help me down the line.
So there it is, those are my two things. What are yours?
