Goal Tracking: February + March Edition

(combined post for February and March since I forgot to do one for February)

At the beginning of the year I published a post outlining what some of my goals for the year were. In the spirit of being transparent, here is the progress I made on them over the course of February –

  1. Due to personal reasons I don’t think I made myself as available as I could have. I’m sorry. 

  2. Zero volunteering.
  3. Procrastination was almost zero.
  4. Continued my trend of always being honest and open.
  5. I read the third chapter of the Rust book.
  6. I read 2 books over the course of February: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Fahrenheit 451 (a short intense love affair)
  7. I read 0 research papers.
  8. I wrote 8 posts, including what I think is one of my best posts so far.
  9. I made very good progress at playing the guitar. I recorded a video of myself singing + playing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” by Elton John for Valentines Day and it wasn’t entirely terrible.
  10. (a) Did not run an 8 minute mile.
    (b) Did a handstand!
    (c) Did a 315 lb squat! The next day was quite painful.
    (d) Did not run a half marathon.
    (e) (goal achieved in January)

Here is the progress I made on them over the course of March –

  1. I made myself available to all those who needed me. I hope I was helpful.
  2. Zero volunteering. Three months of failing at a 2016 goal feels terrible.
  3. Zero procrastination.
  4. 100% honesty.
  5. No progress made towards learning Rust.
  6. I read 3 books over the course of March: Ghostwritten (I LOVED it. What a great book! It grabbed me and refused to let me go), The Mathematics of Love: Patterns, Proofs, and the Search for the Ultimate Equation (a super fun read), and White Teeth (funny and thought-provoking).
  7. Read a paper on Maglev.
  8. I wrote 4 posts in March.
  9. I can play Like Light To The Flies, including ~2/3rd of the solo.
  10. (a) Did not run an 8 min mile.
    (b) (goal achieved in February; see above)
    (c) (goal achieved in February; see above)
    (d) Did not run a half marathon.
    (e) (goal achieved in January)
