My friends have asked me a few times: what’s next and where am I heading? “Nowhere? How can that be?” So here’s my approx. plan for this summer:
Now I’ll go into more details about each of these 3 things.
I’m slightly overweight now and have a sedentary lifestyle. I would (lazily!) like to change that, but I don’t really have something urgent related to that. For this reason I’m going to use gamification framework I’ve created once, to make me more interested in the process and results.
Approximate plan is the following:
I have quite a lot of unfinished projects. Sadly they cannot be presented in a portfolio, because that shows you as a person, that cannot finish stuff properly. Not good for teamwork. :)
I will take those projects and pull them together and ship using best practices of ProductHunt and similar projects.
I didn’t open the source of my learning projects, because I’m really vulnerable and fear negative feedback. However, recently I’ve started feeling a lot of support from friendly people. :) (Thank you, Marie and the team!) And this empowers me to do the “leap of faith” and actually share my projects and get a good feedback on them.
So I will:
Probably I will do something else that I consider helpful to the community.
They say, for remote workers staying healthy is a challenge, esp. important is mental health and it’s easy to drift from that, when you’re mostly spending time alone. I have a few good mechanisms to avoid that drift, and one of them is volunteering for local communities. Actually I got way more friends there, than I did at work, for example. So I’m going to spend my time there too. I enjoy aircraft restoration, so I’ll probably spend some of my time in the museums doing that.
