Last year I decided to start the year right by organizing all of my goals and ideas onto a Trello board. It seemed like a productive thing to do at the time.
However, when December rolled around there was still much that hadn't been touched. It wasn't that I didn't want to do things, they just got lost amongst everything else.
The lesson for me here: it's not much use having things written down if you don't look at them.
This year I'm trying something different: Dave Seah's Groundhog Day resolutions. Instead of a large list of resolutions at the start of the year, it's a smaller list made every month.
Here's February's (very short) list:
Release a game for #1GAM 2016
I wrote 4 games for #1GAM back in 2014 and had a great time. 2015 was not so good, but I want to get back on the game development wagon this year.
Finish the rebuild of Sodaware
This is something I've wanted to get done for a while but just kept pushing it back. Sodaware was my first "real" website, but sadly it's been left to gather dust over the last few years.
My original plan was to use Jekyll (which is what powers this site), but I've since decided to go with Middleman. I still like Jekyll, but Middleman felt like a better fit for a none-blog site.
Write one blog post a week
Every year I tell myself I'm going to start writing more. Why should 2016 be any different?
More to come next month (March 3rd).
