Designing a Well Lived Life: Checking In (September)

Checking in for September for my "Designing a Well-Lived Life" blogging. This is about making small changes during the year to make larger changes.

  • Writing more / designing more: Been working on the editing pass of "The Mediocre Programmer". Haven't been doing much in the realm of designing, or in the realm of the other writing that I would like to do. I need to allocate more time to this.

  • Programming more: I've done a little programming here and there but not a while lot of programming. I want to do more development with Godot. Again, most of my programming has been work-related.

  • Engage more with people, not things: I've been on Mastodon and Plus a lot more than I would like. I've still been doing Coffee House Coders and MUG. Also we've had a few occasions to meet up with folks. Still more work to do in this area.

  • Blogging more: Seems to come in fits and spurts, but at least I have a monthly outlet.

  • Getting out of debt: Still making some progress in this arena.

  • Supporting creators in sustainable ways: Still doing Patreon and Liberapay, and picking up albums on Bandcamp. Wondering how much more I can do.

  • Physical health: Not much progress in this area.

  • Kindness: Still working on being kinder to others and myself.

  • Mindfulness: Still practicing mindfulness with meditation and pausing during the day.
