What about other skills such as AI or Design or Web work?

As I already said in the past about projects, I need to focus on the most important things and I have to say no to stuff outside of this scope. I won’t look at web development stuff like I have already done for the last 4 months.

Daily practice does not make Perfect!

Doing everydays for the last 175 days didn’t make me perfect in any field I worked during this on going experience.

What about normal life?

  • 21 articles in my blog.
  • Bought a Bike that was also stolen!
  • Stopped doing any sport, I’m a bit lazy.
  • Watched 129 hours of TV and 165 hours of Movies in 2018!
  • Read only 14 books against the 39 goal and vs 44 books read in 2017.
  • My daily steps kept decreasing from last year, am I getting too much still? Yes but I’ll fix this!
  • Became part of the Oculus Start initiative, getting access to Oculus hardware to explore VR!
  • Started doing EVERYDAYS, already at 175.

New year, new Goals

Too many goals or new years resolutions aren’t usefuel.

3 “simple” GOALS:

  1. Loving my Girlfriend more than anything else and being a better boyfriend, solving my defects!
  2. Continue EVERYDAYS by following courses to improve drawing, modelling, VFX and Virtual Reality workflows.
  3. Daily meditation or walk before work with small stretching or swimming on the weekends.
