I'm going to start trying to do more of these, in the vein of Sacha Chua's. It gives me a sort of impetus to be better about tracking my time, about logging my work, and thinking and introspecting about myself and my life. My hope ismidnfulhis leads me to being more mindful about what I'm up to, as well as providing me with a good log of how my time is going. The tough part about doing these for me is going to be balancing the verbosity of introspecting my work and pushing too much information publicly. I don't work at an open source company any more where I can get away this any more. So these posts may end up in two parts, one that gets rendered to the blog, and one that just sits in my
~/org along with the rest of my life. I'm making a personal promise to myself to make a habit of writing these for the next month, once a week, and then a monthly review. If any value comes from them, I will continue them.
This was a very interesting week. Work was stressful (how do I quantify that?), personal life was up and down but there were some bright spots:

F9 i, so it's often the state I get stuck in when I'm not working on anything, or when I complete a non-project task.
I have been working on updating internal Node 0.10 projects to npm2 and making steady headway on getting iojs 1.4 in to production. Next week I'd like to make headway on that, even though I'm planning to push off the hard deadline that I pushed.
