Sabbatical Update (Week 16)

September 24, 2021

Summary: (17 September 2021 to 23 September 2021) A failed attempt at an autobiography, continuing to read Energy and Civilization, and continuing the Python class.


I continued reading Energy and Civilization by Vaclav Smil.

Last week

I attempted to start writing my autobiography. It was a flop. I couldn't create the motivation needed to start a major new project. I think I need to do more thinking about my methodology for creating an autobiography as well as what's in/out of scope. Aside from that I continued doing the classwork for my Python class.

What's next

I am going to work on the Bookworm Club until I ship an MVP. I think I couldn't motivate myself to work deeply on the autobiography because of the nagging awareness that I haven't yet finished an MVP for the Bookworm Club. I am trying to break the habit of starting projects and never finishing them.
