Before having kids, I used to like traveling for work. It was fun, and I got to see other places, mostly on the companies expense (of course tourism, never happened on company time, or at all; for any of my trips >.< that seemed to be reserved for upper management travel meetings)
It is that time of the year again. Time for a New Year's Resolution, and in my usual tradition, I will not exactly do the whole resolution aspect of this thing. I try to create goals, and then formulate plans to help me achieve said goals. These goals need to be Motivating, Challenging, Measurable, Attainable, and Beneficial. This should sound similar in spirit to SMART goals, if you are an employee of a large corporation.
Lately I have been having trouble staying focused and being productive towards work/tasks from which I earn money. This seems to include both personal (self published) projects and client (contracted) projects. See I have over 180 domain names of which only two or three are actually making any money; why? I cannot seem to stay focused on a single project long enough to bring it to make a profit. Join me as I explore my seemingly masterful procrastination skills.
UPDATE 11/16/2019: To all that met up at paddy coyne's on pier 70. Thank you for the great evening, I really enjoyed meeting all of you. You all have such great projects you are working on, and I hope that we can keep in communication for years to come. Enjoy the conference (it is starting now)
Preparing for not one but two talks is really a pain. I am speaking at LinuxFest Northwest 2018 twice. Both are topics I am super interested in, however being the first talks I am giving; I feel somewhat overwhelmed. It's a good thing I didn't shoot for 3.
