12 Week Year: DriverlessCrocoGoals

Here’s an attempt at 12 Week Year-style goal setting for DC.

I’m trying to keep it simple, and haven’t gone deeply into unpacking my goals and vision because I’m already committed to them and happy with them – so this is mainly about getting stuff done / execution.

Writing Goals

Overall Vision (“this will sound a bit vague”):
To keep building Driverless Crocodile as a tool for my own learning and to help others.

Medium – Long Term Specific Goals / Vision:
– Complete the DriverlessBookadile
– Use this as the basis for reorganising / redesigning the site
– Podcast it for fun
– Workshop it somewhere if anyone’s interested

Goal for this 12 Week Year (wb 6th January to wb 23rd March):
– Complete a first draft of the DriverlessBookadile, in rough-cut, blog-post form.

A good start. The press release was much harder than I thought it would be!

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommended resources...
