Rex, a poster I've not seen posting before, posts a decent thread which is interesting enough and also corresponds to typology, gets a bunch of rude responses which are personal and off topic in the first page or two of the thread. Anyone else noticing stuff like this? Thoughts about what its likely to do to the traffic to the forum?
Anyway, I've got a list of goals at 43Things, http://www.43things.com/person/Lark1 which is currently at 38, although I've written about other ones in my blog thread and I've got another two page list which is folded up and in my wallet, which I look at now and again. Its got personal stuff on it too which I dont share with many people on it.
I had to edit my 43Things list, including the goals completed, when I came back to it this year after setting it up years ago, like more than five years ago I think. There were a lot of goals which were a little juvenile in retrospect, although they were fun 43things is now integrated with facebook and I didnt want my work colleagues and associates reading about them out of context and thinking they were recent things, drawing conclusions etc.
I know it seems stupid but I tend to find you have to plan for stupid and that you can count on stupid. That's just in life in general, not just work.
you're kidding man, I can grow a goatee in two or three days.
That's about the same for me, I haven't shaven my one off since I started growing it I mean. I do this thing called trimming, it's a part of grooming that I find helps me have a goatee for long periods of time with out looking ZZ Top (or whoever), by way of maintenance. I've 'not shaven' my goatee off since mid/late October; Then.
was the one
who was lost
and found in
my own thoughts
I've laid bare
and laid there
is it me or is it you
give me reason to...
