The short overview of what I plan on doing this year.
Below is the reason why and maybe a whimsical plan for getting it done.
Its important to note the author does not take himself super seriously.
Reason: I want to become a better communicator. And to continue my overall growth as a person and in my career I have identified that being better at written communication is going to be needed.
Method: Write way more documentation at work. Being more honest, start writing documentation at work. Partially joking aside, journal daily, set dedicate time to dump thoughts out into something.
Reason: I hear having an online presence is a good idea but I want to build little things here and there for fun.
For example TinyPost was a fun little 2hr project.
Method: I have no idea at the moment. But probably youtube videos and this blog.
Reason: It allows me to pay my bills and not starve plus I enjoy learning.
Method: Dedicate at least 4hrs a week to learning the stuff listed below. Probably start off with RTFM and pluralsight until I have enough context about them to incorporate them into a project.
This is the overall stuff I think is interesting. I don't list out language specific libraries nor concepts here since I see those as a different thing. For example I see graphql as a concept to learn not a specific technology.
Reason: Picking up heavy stuff and putting it down is fun. Plus I hate cardio.
Method: Build home gym and become a powerlifter. Remember the lifting belt is what lets everyone know you are a powerlifter and not a regular fat guy.
NB: If you lift heavy enough then loading and unloading the bar counts as cardio.
