Its the middle of the year and we just finished up the heavy lift of our half reviews at work. Lots of peer, self and upward reviews being written before we dive into final rating discussions. Its a busy time of the year but also a really good time for us to check in and see how we are doing. So let’s see where we are at with my personal goals.
Time to kick off the new year with a new set of goals. Let’s kick the tires and light the fires! Bot Up! - I have an idea for a messenger bot that I’ve been meaning to get out the door. Just need to find the time to code it up and ship it. It solves a need for me that I’m trying accomplish. And its something new and interesting that I’d like to learn more about.
Another year down, another chance to review what I’ve accomplished for the year. Solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 3 minutes – FAIL - I was pretty active in trying to get this one accomplished at the beginning of the year. Even got down to a pretty consistent resolution on the cube itself, just didn’t have the time to get fast at it. Unfortunately, my schedule and work load pushed this one to the back burner and really haven’t touched it in close to 6 months.
Clearly I’m a bit behind this year with my goals. These are usually posted on 1⁄1 but this year, things are different. Different priorities, different timelines, different expectations, still trying to be a better version of myself. So here it is, time to write down the goals and put a plan in action to make it happen! My 2017 Goals! Solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 3 minutes – This one may seem silly and it very much is.
I don’t think I’ve ever done this poorly on my yearly goals. But I have a good reason, a couple of them actually. Please refer back to The Ochos and you’ll fully understand. But…to stay consistent, let’s run through them and see how poorly I did. Learn Swift – FAIL I did some tutorials and the playground activity from the developer portal. I do like what I’ve seen in swift so far.
