Today I turn 34. I’m ok with this, as I’ve never really been subconscious about my age. I recently read about an exercise in a book, that laid out a different way of setting goals. The idea is to write 500 words of how you want your life to look in 2 years. Then work every day towards making your life fit that scene. I would like to share with you how I want my life to look like in 2 years. I am doing this for my own self-reflection, as well as to deliver accountability to myself.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
I have been taking design very seriously the last few months. I mean, really seriously. I’m starting to think design first, code second. Adam Wathan and Steve Schoger have written a great piece on how to cheat on design.
I don’t think it’s cheating at all, but the title certainly get’s more people to click through.
I’ve been struggling with my communication with my co-workers for several months now. It seems I am always in one of two states. I am either bugging people on Slack, or I am the one being bugged. Slack did replace email for us, but it created a whole new problem in its place.
Eric Barnes seems to have the same problem. I love that his company has Slack free hours, and I think I’ve going to implement that in my company. I want people to get work done, as well as communicate their work. Unfortunately for some, the latter sometimes overrides the former.
Roy Halladay was one of the greatest pitchers I ever got to see. For almost a decade he was the absolute best pitcher in baseball.
Doc Halladay was also one of my idols. First for his tireless work ethic and demeanor. Second for his absolute skill on the field. Third for what an amazing overall human being he was.
Many people have written about Roy Halladay this past week. I wanted to share my favourite, which is from Ian Hunter of Blue Jay Hunter. Ian writes more from a fan’s perspective, which is exactly how I experienced Halladay’s tenure.
RIP Roy Halladay
Courage is not being fearless but rather acting in spite of the existence of fear!
