Shine Cycle 2018 Goals Review, 2019 First Quarter Goals

As the civil year comes to a close, I have been considering how the last year has gone and what I want to achieve in the coming months, starting with a pure retrospective on Strategic Primer on Wednesday and continuing with my “miscellaneous” goals for the year that was and the coming quarter on SaturdayA. Today, I’m turning at last to consider whether I met my goals for the Shine Cycle, my fantasy series-in-preparation, and to set out my goals in that quarter for the next three months.

2018 Goals Review, 2019 First Quarter Goals

As the civil year draws to a close, I’m again taking the opportunity to review the year that was and set new goals for the coming months. I looked back over my 2018 goals for Strategic Primer on Wednesday, and will turn to the Shine Cycle on Monday; today, everything else. As I mentioned on Wednesday, unlike past years, today I’m only going to set new goals for the first quarter of 2019, but before I get to those, a look at the goals I set for myself a year ago.

Strategic Primer 2018 Goals Review

As another year draws to a close, I’m again taking a look back at my goals and plans for the year that was and setting new goals for the future. In light of the strengths and weaknesses of my approach this past year, this year I’m only going to set and publicly announce goals for a quarter at a time, instead of setting grand plans for the entirety of 2019. I’m also not going to set any formal goals related to Strategic Primer, since in my task-planning deliberations these last weeks I’ve decided that other than items that are waiting on someone else’s input for me to be able to make progress, it’s a better use of my limited time to allocate it to other projects. Which is not to say I won’t spend “unbudgeted time” on Strategic Primer, but I’ll consider any progress a bonus instead of trying to set a minimum. I’ll look at my “miscellaneous” 2018 goals, and set new ones for all my projects other than the Shine Cycle (and Strategic Primer), on Saturday, and wrap up with a look at my Shine Cycle progress and new goals on Monday.

2017 Review, 2018 Goals

In this last full week of the civil year, as in past years I’ve taken this opportunity to review the year that was and set new goals for the coming year. I began with the two “magna opera” that have taken up so much of my attention, the Shine Cycle on Tuesday and Strategic Primer on Wednesday. Today, I’ll cover “the rest,” starting with a review of the goals I set for myself a year ago. Continue reading “2017 Review, 2018 Goals”

Strategic Primer 2017 Review, 2018 Goals

As the year draws to a close, I am again looking back to the goals I set a year ago, and forward to set new goals for 2018. I began with goals related to the Shine Cycle yesterday; today, I’ll consider Strategic Primer, the strategy game I’ve been developing in one form or another for many years, starting with the goals I set back in January.

Shine Cycle 2017 Review, 2018 Goals

As the civil year draws to a close, I again pause briefly to consider how the last year has gone and how I might best address myself to the new year. In particular, I’ve been looking back to measure myself against the goals I set a year ago, and deciding what goals to set for the year to come. As usual, I will consider each of my “magna opera” in turn, starting with the Shine Cycle today, and beginning with my goals for that in 2017. Continue reading “Shine Cycle 2017 Review, 2018 Goals”

I began with most of my goals on Saturday, and continued with my Shine Cycle-related goals on Monday; today, a look at Strategic Primer, the strategy game I’ve been developing in one form or another for many years, starting with the goals I set a year ago.
