29: Sincere deliberateness

I've taken a lot from Buster Benson in the last year. My life overview, a codex vitae, and now yearly reviews and mottos for the year ahead.

In hindsight, I'd say 28's word would be: surrender. I'll write about that later. It involves a month-long solo trip to Japan and burnout.

This year, I'd like to be more deliberate and sincere in that deliberateness.

Deliberate in my creativity
Blocking out chunks in my calendar for artist dates. Focusing on music. Doing things just because.

Deliberate in my community
Using the new flexibility in my schedule to focus on the work outside of 'work' – the kind that uplifts causes I care about.

Deliberate in my craft
Taking the time to create clean and understandable code, and mapping out the processes and documentation for future reference. Taking the time to write out and externalize my thoughts.

Might flesh this out later. Might not. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Anywho – here's to another year around the sun.
