I’m always trying to push my limits and learn new things. Over the years, I’ve noticed that sometimes I just decide to learn something… and then I drop everything do it, sometimes nonstop for a long time.
Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I fail horribly. But I want to see what the differences are in the projects I succeed at and the ones I fail at. And I figured the best way to do this is document the processes, gather data, and analyze.
So that’s what this is about. It’s meant primarily for my own personal learning, and I like to have a creative byproduct of my experiences sometimes to look back on, but hopefully others can learn from it as well.
Personal To Do List:
- Rock Climbing (climb some mountain, starting with very little experience)
- Yoga (needs goal still)
- Martial Arts (not sure which yet)
- All math courses on MIT OpenCourseware (maybe all the stuff that undergrad math majors do)
- Functional Programming (pick a new language and write open-source module for it, something that will help the lang community grow)
- Sculpture (something full size, realistic, so have to get skilled)
- Electronics (build robotics system of some sort, and learn what’s necessary to do it)
- Better sleep (how to quantify?)
- Shift habits and become a very early riser (5am, or so, but process of how to)
- Major open-source project from scratch
