Blog at an average rate of at least 4 times a month. Result: achieved. – This was close, publishing the 48th post just a few days before the end of the year. At points during the year I found myself forcing out a post over a weekend (normally a history podcast review), when the time could have been spent more fruitfully.
Only have 2 programming projects going at the same time. Result: achieved. – This is a good system. I never did more than two projects at once and worked to pre-decided completion points. As well as the 3D engine animation and secret project (that didn’t work out), I also did IMINRA and a Java NIO server and am currently working on another quiet project. However, focussing on 1 or 2 things at a time and finishing them means that I now have a long list of things I’d like to do.
Complete 3 Blender models. Result: not achieved. – I managed one, the robot.
Maintain Queuesaurus and general ruby skills. Result: not achieved. Barely did any programming outside of Java this year.
Run 5km in 25 minutes. Result: not achieved. – I was getting somewhere on this goal until I injured my foot in August and haven’t run since (it’s still injured).
Decrease net ownership of physical goods. Result: achieved.
Now for the coming year:
Blog at an average rate of at least 3 times a month. Based on experience of the last 2 years, this should be easy to manage and I shouldn’t need to force myself to write anything.
Only have 2 programming projects going at the same time. Despite the backlog, I think this worked well. I will start on more of the quiet project and more 3D programming (I want to try out Unity).
