Fri Apr 9:
Hi, my name is Sam and I am a digital information hoarder. I can’t throw stuff out cause I never know when I am going to need to read about it again. Customer engagement, project estimating, product development, risk management and a whole bunch of other things. I can’t let go.
I got While True: Learn () and I’m loving it. Initially, when I bought the Switch, it was just for Animal Crossing but I’ve bought a few great games and most were on sale at deep discounts,some others were free:
- Cozy Grove
- Color Zen – cheesy but free
- Him and Her
- The Gardens Between
- AER – Don’t get this one yet – I just don’t know what I’m supposed to do
- Just Dance 2021
- Bad Dream Coma
- Jump Rope Challenge – cheesy but free
Zelda is on my mind but I don’t know if I’m willing to spend eighty bucks on a game plus how many ever expansion packs – and I haven’t played Zelda in ages – maybe I’m just feeling nostalgic but it, among several others are hanging out in my wish list.
I opened my eyes at 4:00 am but I wasn’t raring to go – fell asleep again and woke up at 7:45 am. I figured whenever I feel scattered, I will do non-focus work. Like cleaning up, organizing, etc. This morning felt like a Monday afternoon – I was confused. Why is this happening, it’s Friday. Luckily I am shutting down my EPMO Confluence space and moving stuff to Teams or SharePoint – Like all my PMI practice guides and the tonnes of other whitepapers and free eBooks I’ve downloaded over the years are now in SharePoint and there are some articles I will add to our Teams wiki. I am also cleaning up my hard drive and I am in the process of re-evaluating the metrics associated with my OKRs (turns out this isn’t scatterbrain work).
I mean, it wasn’t a productive Friday – but at least I made a bit of progress because I worked on things that needed to get done anyway but it’s not life-changing epic stuff you know. It’s just meh stuff – If shit sits there all disorganized it’s only gonna bug me, I don’t think anyone else will notice or care. I’m trying to fight the feeling that I wasted the day on someone else’s dime.
I’m looking forward to working on my OKRs over the weekend and playing Duck, Duck Goose tomorrow.
