Plans for 2018

Posting here my plans for 2018 mainly for own motivation and the reminder. The list is not complete and lacks things from my family life, as they are personal.

Read more books

I used to read a huge number of books, but somewhere in 2013-2014 I pretty much stopped doing that. In the last 3 years I’ve read just around 3 or 4 books in total which is a hilariously low. Unfortunately, I was focused on articles more, and various blogs. But now I feel the need to read complete and full-size books.

I have just finished the book by Ashlee Vance – “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future” – and I really enjoyed it.

Maintain Created By IT

This is a fun project that I’ve created at the end of 2017. It’s dedicated to videos that were created by or about people from IT area of expertise. Developers, designers, sysadmins, sales and marketing gurus – and all the funny things that are happening with and among them. I do hope to bring some decent amount of traffic over time.

Let me dream 🙂

Release Project 1 (in development)

This project is big. The initial implementation is more or less sizable, but the general idea and the number of features that can be created are enormous. And there were some difficulties in development, more about that in The easiest path is the hardest part article, that will be published later.

Release Project 2 (in plans)

This one is much smaller. It has a value (in my opinion) to be a paid product. I don’t expect to spend more than several weeks of development on it in my spare time (evenings and weekends). But it will come second after the Project 1.

Improve health

Not sure what to do here yet, and how exactly. I guess, start doing more physical activities?
