Today, I did a simple exercise. I wrote down the things I would do if I wasn’t limited by time or money, then I picked the top 5 things I would focus on right now. Lastly, I made my goals more specific to my current situation. So here are my top 5 short term goals:
It’s been a week since I started my first #30by7project. There are some things I learned about my behavior and my habits that I think are helpful in revising my goals for the next several #30by7projects.
Two years ago, I tried to do a #30DaysOfCode to get better at web development. It’s a self imposed challenge where I would practice coding for 30 days straight. I didn’t complete that challenge and I think I only finished half way. Recently, I thought about what I did wrong and what I should change if I were to do something like that again.
I still remember my first Christmas in 1995 when I arrived in the US. I received so many presents, mostly toys, that I felt like I was in heaven. It seems like as I get older each year I want fewer and fewer things for Christmas.
I started this piece by randomly making marks with lines until I realized that what I was drawing was a profile of a person. I don’t know if it’s a man or a woman. I don’t think it really matters. Might as well be a banana duct taped to a wall.
I want to start drawing again and rediscover my creative side. I want to apply the same approach as I did with writing. No judgments, just draw.
I’ve been staring at the computer screen for about 15 minutes trying to think of what to write for my first post on this website. Nothing and everything comes to mind. I think it’s what people call all-or-nothing thinking. I’m good at that.
