Have made some progress with my Pixel Art game project (codename ‘ProjectChimp’ ) over the last month or so. I think I’m now at stage where I’ve got a good solid workflow sorted and I’m pretty confident that’s the most difficult part of the project sorted.
Took nearly two years resourcing different productivity tools, programs etc. with no little procrastination along the way. At least now I can focus on the fun stuff!
Over the last month or so I’ve learned more about Python classes, lists and dictionaries and also did some playing around with Lambda functions. No real work done on the ‘arty’ side of things as just want to get the Python basics nailed first.
Completed the Python for Everybody Specialisation on Coursera.
Onwards and upwards with ‘The Plan’. Next stop is more Python, and complete machine-learning
I’ve got a lot of hobbies and interests and often want to do everything at once with the net result being I make little progress on any particular area. In addition I also want to achieve and go beyond my work goals.
For me this epitomizes my ‘Chimp Paradox‘. This was the main motivation for me in setting up this website and blog as it gives me an outlet to express and deal with this ‘conflict’ whilst at the same time putting a structure in place to be more productive in future.
Work and beyond
In summary I want to…
- Keep up to date
- Read work related books
- Work on projects to build my technical knowledge in the context of work
- Be creative in your spare time
I created a new portfolio for learning paths I’d like to explore.
I think this will also provide extra motivation to succeed in my work and study when I see what can be achieved down the line.
