At work with clear object­ives and dead­lines I’m a ded­ic­ated wage slave dili­gently work­ing nine to five (well, ten to seven). I can set pri­or­it­ies, bal­ance the bor­ing shit I need to do with the inter­est­ing stuff I want to do and ensure that as much as is prac­tical gets done.

Unfor­tu­nately when I don’t have dead­lines I just let things drift. Pro­cras­tin­a­tion is just so much darn fun. Sadly I have a long list of inter­est­ing stuff I really want to do but I seem to make such little pro­gress. It’s not (only) a time issue, it didn’t get much bet­ter when I was between jobs.

So this my way of impos­ing dead­lines on myself. I’m com­mit­ting to at least one post a week with a sig­ni­fic­ant object­ive each month. This is a pub­licly com­mit­ment to achiev­ing some­thing. With any luck it might even be innov­at­ive and interesting.
