Getaway

Stairs in the forest

As things continue to pick up, I’ve taken a week to get away from all of the usual distractions that I have and spend a week completely focused on my business.

Keep on Keepin’ on

Still plugging away slowly but surely. The day job has consumed quite a bit of time as of late, and I thought it would settle down when I got back, but another hiccup came up in the form of one of the people that reports to me put in her two week notice. There’s a…

Increasing my Free Time by Decreasing my Free Time

Over a week since my last post! Time unfortunately has been a very precious commodity since getting back from Honduras. On the day we got back, we put an offer in on a new house. It was somewhat spontaneous, but that’s usually the way we do things. We started discussing moving about 9 months ago.…

Time to Reorganize

Junk Drawer

At the beginning of this process, I did a lot of organizing and planning to make sure I had a solid list of tasks I needed to perform.  It was great to have a big, prioritized list where I could check things off and see my progress.  As I web through the list, there were…

Getting Organized For Software

I went through an organization effort with the card game, and need to do that again for the fitness idea.  From a high level, the fitness idea is building technology tools to help people exercise more efficiently through education and workout apps.  This will have a different project plan and product roadmap than a physical…
