2020 Week 45 review (01-08 Nov)

Sun Nov 08 2020

Introduction

I'm reinstating the weekly review habit. See the previous blog posts for an explanation of the six different categories.

The six categories are:

  1. Career
  2. Physical
  3. Side projects
  4. Skills
  5. Relationships
  6. Serendipity

As with last week, I'll rate each of the six categories on a four-point scale:

  • Excellent (exceeding expectations: better than I could've asked for),
  • Good (meets expectations: about as good as I could've asked for),
  • So-so (some good, some bad --- OK overall, but room for improvement),
  • Bad (didn't meet my expectations --- could have done better).

Review of the week

What should I be focusing on now?

So being good in my career is going to be my main goal when I successfully transfer. What about now in this limbo period? What do I do? I could take it as a break: just do whatever's fun.

What my goals are for next week

  • Think and ask around for advice a lot about what I need to learn in order to become a better SWE
  • Actually start doing proper work at IMDA
  • Carry on meeting and video calling my friends
