Many of my friends are involved with projects (professional, recreational, or otherwise) that require some technical mastery. Some have set a goal to become more proficient with their craft during this past year. Several have succeeded, and others have spent the year expending a lot of energy on lateral motion without forward progress.
This post is a reminder for myself as well: maybe it’s time to see how much progress we can make in the next 30 days. If we can’t commit to that, why are we fooling ourselves about having the goal in the first place?
