Today's log..

Work Thinking

The project I'm working on will be finished on time, but it definitely is not going according to the plan. I'm also not documenting what's going on enough. I need to do a post-mortem so I can improve on this sort of thing moving forward.

Exercise

I may be getting a tiny bit ill? So I've decided to just do the exercises, but not push it at all. Recovery-mode only. I ran slowly to work, skipped pull ups, and walked home.

Personal Projects

I have a lot of stuff to start momentum for here. This weekend it'll be a serious goal to:

  • diagnose what's wrong with the wife's computer
  • start working on my timer remake again
  • get outstanding IGDA stuff handled

Need to avoid reading the book this weekend. I'm already well on-pace to finishing it before it's due.

Reading

Thinking in Bets continues to be a solid read. Thankfully, I think I've already internalized what this book has to say. What I think this book is attempting to teach is how to be intellectually honest. Something I noticed as lacking in myself around highschool, and something I still have a long way to go on.

Thinking about how I could execute various things better is something I already do, even if I did well at whatever I'm reflecting on. Further, I have a buddy setup in my wife, who is ever patient with my slow progress. Even at work I have several people keeping me honest (and who are thrilled with how well I respond to feedback).

So, I'm in a pretty good place for self-improvement. I'm even being challenged with information incomplete situations, and now I'm noting them more.

But, I'm reading a bit too much and not doing enough (at least at home), so I shall abstain from reading more of this book this weekend.
