There are a lot of things I wanted to get done this year. I didn't do many of them.
It's not all doom and gloom. I released new versions of blitzmax-mode and beeminder.el, wrote some posts, built some mini-sites and had a pretty good year freelancing. But I still didn't check off as much as I wanted.
For 2019 I'll be trying Groundhog Day resolutions again. They worked pretty well in 2016, although I didn't make it through the entire year. Frequently reviewing my larger goals, and breaking them into smaller ones helped me get more done.
There are a couple of large goals I really want to get done for 2019:
- Release four small games, one each quarter
- Run a half marathon
- Write a small ebook on software development
I have plenty of smaller goals I'd like to work on too. I'm still figuring out the best way to organize and track their progress on them, so that will be my goal for the start of the year.
