Goal progress: Day 4
Sunday, January 04, 2015
Goal 1) So far, so good. I can do 90%. Yesterday, I wanted to have an ice cream after binge-watching "Broadchurch." It's an amazingly written and acted BBC series, but depressing doesn't begin to cover it. Instead of ice cream, I shoveled snow and played with the German Shepherd. (These two things go together. Kaylee loves chasing snow.)
Goal 2) Not making the progress I hoped. This is primarily down to work. I've got all my normal month-end work to do, plus teaching myself MS Project and building a rough draft project plan for my new assignment, which is a full-time job in itself. I did manage to spend a couple of hours yesterday re-reading my world-building notes and writing a 1-page summary. Next step is the chapter outline.
Goal 3) Actually doing awesome on this. It's a lot of work, and I'm more comfortable as a subject-matter expert than as a project manager, but I just keep plugging along. We'll see what the rest of the team says on Tuesday when we go over my initial project plan.
