Goals for 2011
I'm the first one to say that I think new year's resolutions are a waste of time, but at the same time I think its always important to be striving to learn new things, improving your skills and generally bringing as much awesome as you can. Since we're saying hello to a new year shortly, I thought I'd take the opportunity to note a brief list of goals to achieve in the coming year.
- Complete the new version of this site (so simple, yet so delayed)
- Finish Is My Code Readable
- Create something cool with HTML5 canvas
- Attend more events
- Give at least two talks (at DevEvening or elsewhere)
- Tidy up and release Dialify
- Carry on learning and expanding my knowledge
Some of those (such as number 4 and 5) are easy, and numbers 1 and 6 are just a matter of time. Number 3 has possibly already been done, but there is no reason it can't be done again and be better... perhaps something which serves a purpose rather than just being another demo.
Of course, I hope a lot more happens which I haven't included on the list (a completely planned future is not a fun one). I particularly like the idea of writing a book, although I'm not sure what the topic would be. Hopefully something will come up and I'll wonder why I hadn't thought of it earlier. Regardless of what is eventually achieved though, I look forward to another year of great ideas and technologies.
Happy new year to you all. It's gonna be fun...
