New year. Great expectations

January 12, 2011

Hello everyone, my name is Martin and I work as a senior consultant in a IT  company located in Oslo, Norway.

I figured that since we now started a new year I will have set some goals for 2011. What will I achieve this year? It’s always nice to define goals. You can only get more experienced and the worst thing that can happen is not achieving your goals.

And for the record, adding a humongous number of goals will just result in lack of following up everyone of them, so if you want to be effective, concentrate on a few important.
Here is my list for 2011:

Writing tests
…the right way and be convinced that, hey, this is actually very useful! I’ve worked with legacy code several years now, and it’s soo hard to start writing tests on existing stuff. Hope I can join a new project from scratch very soon .

Hold several presentations
…that’s right, I want to challenge myself to keep presentations for an audience (not just working colleagues). You learn so much from this and evolve in many ways. Maybe it will be for the norwegian .net user group?

Keep track on myself
…on everything I do. How productive am I? How many new technologies or frameworks have I learned? How many books have I read? How many training hours a week? Guess it’s my way to try to optimize my life and how to live it. Measure, measure, measure.

Finishing a marathon
…in under 200 minutes (3:20:00). Yup, I’m a running man and I’ve finished several marathons and my personal best is 3:28:47. In Berlin, september this year,  I will be running the worlds fastest marathon track and I hope for a new record also 🙂

What’s your list like?
