This week I wanted to talk about goals. Specifically,how you should be keeping track of your progress toward your goals. I have been playing around with this for a while now. And I have come up with a solution that has been working for me. So rather than first just saying I want to complete x goal. And hit the ground running you need to give yourself a way of tracking this. And the way I have been doing so is through a journal. At the beginning of each week I write a main goal that will help lead to my overall goal.
I then write down the steps that I will need to complete to finish this goal by the end of the week. This way at the end of the week I will be able to show the progress I have made. And over all check if I met the goals. If I met the goals for the week I move on and repeat the process.If not, I write the goals I missed from the previous week and repeat the process.I feel like this has been working because it gives me a way of seeing the overall progress I have made over time. Rather than just saying I am working toward a massive goal and then getting overwhelmed by the amount of work I need to complete that goal. I also wanted to ask you guys. How do you guys keep track of your goals?
So as usual here is what I have been working on.
This past week I have not really had the chance to work on any code. As I have been dealing with a million other things. But I wanted to post the most recent project I have been working on. To help me on my journey toward graphics programming. I have been studying endless amounts of math. To help me understand the math better. I have been working on small programs. This specific one will be used to factor out quadratic equations. Using completing the square. https://github.com/gwartney21/CompleteTheSquare
As always thanks for reading.
