Goals: September 2017

Last month went by super fast, not to mention Summer is officially over and it’s getting really chilly… anyways, what did I accomplish last month August 2017?

Professionally

There’s a new promising initiative in the works, the globlal unification, kind-of. My wild guess is that we will complete this project in like 2-3 years. Exciting times ahead of us to say the least.

Personally

I’m struggling a bit to properly schedule all the things I want to do, it’s the usual case of I want to all of this, but in the end I don’t do anything. Sad, but true. I need to focus and plan daily.

The positive of August was finishing reading The Power of Habit and starting reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, the latter is still in the works but I should complete it by the first week of September, great reading so far.

I was able to blog a bit about some other unrelated things, mostly work-related, like left joining in Rails, the steps for connecting to RDS and Redshift using SSL and to my surprise the huge increase of traffic since last year.

Although I did not finish the two books I planned last month I’m still on pace to reach the same number of books I read last year, to me it is really important to read at least the same number of books as 2016, obviously my goal in mind is always reading meaningful books, no stat padding allowed.

What am I planning for September 2017?

Continue and complete The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, focus more on my personal health and write more Go than before. Go. Go. Go.
