This Week

  • Advance on Khan Academy
    • I am frustrated by a lack of time. This will change soon, but I have set up a forked strategy for the coming year. Either my work contract will be settled, and I will continue working at Tech 2U, go to Sierra and worry about this later, or I will use my new days off to go to ARC where my assessments render this step un-necessary. Either way, I am removing this goal.
  • Stay up on Medium
    • I have done a great job of staying up on Medium every day, and contributing regularly. I will expand this goal to include contributing regularly.
  • Advance on HackerRank
    • I have not had time for this, but with my coming transition, I will hope to make more time to advance here.
  • Read Hacker News
    • I still read this almost every day. I will pin it to chrome to keep it fresh in my mind.
  • Read Indie Hackers
    • I have stayed up on this as well as SE Daily. I am feeling inspired and continuing to absorb.
  • Earn $100 with Lyft
    • I have far surpassed this goal. I think one or two nights a week is realistically more than enough to accomplish this.
  • Earn $100 with Uber
    • I have far surpassed this goal. I think one or two nights a week is realistically more than enough to accomplish this.
  • Earn $200 with Upwork
    • I have not yet completed this. I will make a calendar entry to try to get this done this week.
  • Eat Less, Eat Better, Drink More Water
    • I think I have more or less done well here. I certainly have room to grow, and I ordered more soylent to that end as well as doing better grocery shopping.
  • Play Chess
    • I have not played chess in weeks. I am setting a firm goal to play a game this wednesday.
  • Learn a new skill
    • This has fallen by the wayside. I will hopefully have time this week.
