Groundhog Day Resolutions are my ongoing attempt to discover and pursue life goals. 2021 is the 15th year of trying to figure it out.
These pages are updated approximately once every month starting February 2nd and continuing on March 3rd, April 4th, May 5th, etc. The official URL is https://davidseah.com/challenge/ghdr2021/.
Theme for 2021: TRANSITIONS
In year 15 it doesn’t seem like I’m any closer to figuring out how this journey ends, but I have learned a lot about myself. Last year I didn’t do the regular Groundhog Day Resolutions process of detailed tracking of multiple objectives, choosing instead to choose a single area to focus on improving: getting better at software development. I think it was successful! In 2021 I’m continuing to do the software development improvement but am adding a NEW area of focus: transitions.
What do I mean by that? It alludes to being “in-between” my old self and my new self. I had a lot of insights last year that questioned who I thought I was and why I was stuck in those thoughts. I’ll fill out more in the coming months.
I’m maintaining several “tomes” to collect transition-related thoughts at least once a month. The tomes are both writing prompt and a concise process log. 2021 is starting with the following topics:
