Reorganizing My Digital Workspace

I recently came across a tweet by Kyle Shook that simply read What is your coding folder called? I didn’t think much about it as I’d used the same folder structure for years.

The Road Map: 2020

Like I talked about in my last post I decided not to set resolutions for this year but to instead layout a roadmap. In the past, I would normally set out some S.M.A.R.T. Goals and then write quarterly update posts to let people know how I was doing. I still plan on doing quarterly reviews as a way to keep me on track and to let you know what's going on.

Looking to the Future; My 2020

In the latter part of 2019, I hit a serious roadblock.

Automating My Work Environment

It's company policy to restart your computer before you leave work. Why? I imagine an effort to help protect client health records. At first, this annoyed me because I had to reopen my apps and my stories every day. That not only took time but precious brain power to remember what the heck I was doing. It's bad enough to pick up in the middle of a story the next day, but don't force me to start over before my first cup of coffee.
