Hey! We made it through the first week of 2022!
I’ve spent the last few days vacationing and am so ready to get back into everything! I treated myself to a height adjustable desk last week and am looking forward to assembling it when it arrives.
This year has hit the ground running so lets catch up! 🏃‍♂️

👾 Fun Stuff
Wordle is sweeping the internet as the hottest new word game! It’s actually pretty enjoyable and takes only a minute to play. The below tweet is a play on Wordle’s share feature. The game creates a grid of blocks showing your guesses and the results without spoiling your guesses.

💭 Quote of the Week
“It does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not stop.” –Confucius
2021 was rough. The world is still dealing with a pandemic and we are all very tired of it. During my recent break from work I was able to clear my mind. I realized that I was coasting through my days and I hate that. I put together a plan to do something meaningful for myself each day.
I listened to this podcast and found that I needed to establish some habit systems to help drive my goal. I’m using this Google Sheet to track these.
My Six Tiny Habits:
  1. Wake up at 7am
  2. Read 10 pages
  3. Write 1 journal page
  4. Practice a foreign language (with Duolingo)
  5. Plan my day
  6. 30 pushups/situps/etc
I am going to do these every day. They are small and take me about an hour. Focusing on today’s quote, consistency is the most important piece. Consider the habit of reading 10 pages a day. It’s not that much of a book, but done everyday and it’s 70 pages a week, 280 pages a month!
Think about what you want to accomplish this year, break that goal down into something so small you can do a bit every day. By the end of the year see how far that gets you!
I’d love to know what your goals and how you are going to break them down. Reach out and let me know!
👋 See you next week!
Join the discussion on Twitter where I’ll be posting more about Kotlin and Android.
Remember to stay hydrated and have a great week!
Thanks for reading!
