Operation Positive - Day 4 02 Aug 2015

Status: Success-ish Still so tired from London. Had a relaxing morning and afternoon though. Hannah came over in the evening and we went for food and drinks which was great. Always feel positive when she’s around.

Standardising Assumes Everything is Equal 01 Aug 2015

Processes and standards are key to a successful project in anything. This ranges from personal projects to large corporate projects. I have a problem with standards though, they assume everything is equal. This is a bit of a brain dump and I don’t have the right answers (there aren’t any) it’s more of a thought experiment. #Tools I built drupaldev-apache/nginx because I wanted something to give back to the Drupal community and it was useful to my daily work/personal development process. Both these tools have been superseded badger

Operation Positive - Day 3 31 Jul 2015

Status: fail I’m so tired. London really kills me. It doesn’t help that my train was cancelled for the second time in a row. I don’t really have much to say today, the only real positive was that I got to work on some static site search research and look into twig a bit more.

Status: Fail Today was the first day of Operation Positive. The challenge is to not to be negative in the aim of changing how I think. It was a failure but that was to be expected and not a huge problem. Below are things from the day that are note worthy: I ran the internal retrospective there were negative things on there. Way more positive things though! Many meetings, my default state is all meetings are bad even if they aren’t. Struggling to feel like I’m doing a good job. Staying positive is hard and tiring. I’ll try and blog...
