Weeknotes for 11/07/2011
Things at the moment feel much like a reconstruction. I am rebuilding habits and enthusiasms. I am trying to restore some old, best practices and create new ones. Most of all I am trying to work out what direction to go in and how best to do so.
The positive aspect of the week of this week is that all of the steps I have been taking (small as they may have been) have felt like they were in the right direction. This, after recent weeks, is a substantial victory, for no less reason than it makes me want to move them forward.
There is still a lot of filtering and prioritising to be done, but a cloud is lifting.
What it does leave me thinking about is how long I can allow this process to take. There are pressures. Financial pressures. Pressures from the people who have also been involved in those projects. Personal pressure to see these things (and myself) succeed.
With these pressures (of their varying degrees) how much time do I allow myself this reconstructive process? I have always believed in preparation and doing things right first time out, but there is precedent of this not working. I need to maintain a momentum throughout this process. Hopefully the small repetitive tasks I am setting myself, including the increased activity on this site, will have the effect they are designed for. That being exercise for the work muscles that have lost their definition.
The end of a positive week though.
