Resolutions Review #04: Staying the Course

It’s time for the June 6 Review for my Groundhog Day Resolutions, which is my yearly goal setting ritual. It’s like New Year’s Resolutions, except they start on February 2nd, and also have followup review days on 3/3, 4/4, etc.

There is not much to report this month. I’m making progress on several GHDR goals, which are currently:

  1. SEARCH FOR MINDBLOWING PRODUCTIVE SYNERGY
  2. RUN A NEAT SIDE BUSINESS
  3. DEVELOP CREATIVE INTERDEPENDENCE
  4. PUSH ON THE 10-YEAR GOALS FOR 2024

Last month I augmented my approach with Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) which I’m updating on a weekly basis here. Here’s the main categories:

  • Gain Mastery through Work
  • Reduce Frustration & Increase Wellbeing
  • Not Be Bored / Isolated
  • Develop Cool Side Business
  • Aspirational 2024 Goals

Each of these categories has a measurable action that I’ve determined lead to progress in these categorical area, which contribute to my more strategic Groundhog Day Resolutions. I think they need some rewriting to be more systematic, but despite this the addition of weekly OKR reviews is helping me maintain momentum.

I’m not sure there’s much more to say. Some highlights of the last month:

  • The Virtual Coworking Chat Room continues to be a source of community energy and positivity. This is probably the biggest improvement in my work-life balance, since there are people “around” all the time in the chat room. I think we’re all getting a productive boost from just sitting in here.

  • New ETP Design to Press – I finalized the new design and did a second run of 50 and 75 sheet pads using it. They should be in-stock by mid-June if all goes well.

  • Patreon supporters slowly rise – This is great, and I’m learning to use the Patreon platform as a way to get more direct reactions from people. I need to put in some time updating some forms.

  • It’s warmer – This is hugely raising my spirits.

The plan for this month is to keep hammering away at everything, particularly with respect to the work project which has some hard deadlines coming up.

There’s nothing much to else to report! You can catch up on my daily escapades through the WHATS UP DAVE livestream or checking into the Virtual Coworking Chatroom. You can links to both places at http://davidseah.com/virtual-coworking. It seems like I’m doing most of my “blogging” in the chat room, so this is a way you can connect with what I’m doing .

See ya next month!
