A story of loss and disappointment.

As an insurgent in the belly of corporate America, I often have to deal with the aftermath of decisions made well beyond my sphere of influence, and by “deal” I mean clean it up, and make it work. (Insert Tim Gun gif here)

This month has served up a brutal, round after round attack to my team and the progress we were making. …

A few days late, but still here.

This month felt like a bit of a wash tbh, sometimes that’s just how it is. Work, real life, etc takes over and time slips away. Now I’m first to blame my own procrastination or laziness, but as I get older the more I realize I have my own recipe for productivity.

It’s usually 40% frustration about not being productive (recursive loop), 20% satisfying the minimum amount of learning to tackle a new thing, and 40% blind curiosity about something new.

It’s this same fitful, sporadic motion that has moved me through life…

It’s exactly what the title says. In the interest of a little personal accountability, as well as a need to better document all my little projects I’m going to attempt some monthly status reports.

Recently I’ve been a little down on myself about not getting enough done in the making things arena. Creativity and problem solving are two of the things I care the most about. But alas time isn’t on my side.

Often a lot of time and consequently energy gets sucked into daily work and it can feel like true progress on the things you are interested in…
