Week Two

FAIL!!! EPIC FAIL!!!

Well let's see what we have accomplished here...
  • Reading - Well I read the preface I guess that counts, no not really
  • Alarm Clock - Zip Zero Nada
  • Post an article - Well everyone can see how that went
The blog post is the only real place I made any progress. I forgot this weekend we were heading out for a camping trip so I was not able to put together some of the references I wanted. I however was able to write up the post on my BlackBerry so now I have to finish those references and that goal will be completed. That also put off the debrief and the week 2 goals.

We're going to roll forward with Week one's goals into week two and see how things go.

Week One

This article was originally posted on http://blog.caffeinated-code.com/2009/10/now-to-caffeinated-code.html. It has been restructured to fit the goals blog.

I have learned that writing down a goal really does make you more likely to accomplish it so I am going to lay down a foundation to make things happen.

As a kickoff let's talk about the Caffeinated Goals. I want to make a public record of what I hope to accomplish each week. I am blatancy stealing this idea from my close friend and fellow blogger Joshua McKinnon. What good is a goals list without the finger pointing when it fails or the kudos when it succeeds? So with that will be which goals I accomplished, why was I successful, what did I lean, how could I have done better, where did I fall short.

In that vein how have I done so far? Put bluntly - TERRIBLY! To be a little more fair that is only part of the story, I have begun several postings some of which are close to completion and others are just topics and some body.

Well with all that here's the first goal listing:
Let's see how week one goes.
