I have to say, October was a good month!
On review, I accomplished quite a lot:
- I kept up with my reading goal, and finished three books. (All were great, too – Innumeracy by John Allen Paulos; How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems by Randall Munroe; and Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration by Bryan Caplan/Zach Weinersmith.)
- I’ve now written just over 25,000 words in my book, so my writing goal from last month was successful! A rough estimate for total length is going to be somewhere in the 40-50k range, so I think I’m halfway there or better on the raw writing!
- In addition, I went on a spontaneous new adventure in the “wilderness” (I mean, a state forest in Pennsylvania counts as wilderness, right?) that was a lot of fun, and I honestly can’t wait to go again.
- And lastly, I accepted an exciting promotion at my company, which I officially started today!
So generally, things have been going pretty well! November promises to have a lot of action as well, and I’m excited for the challenges.
So my New Month’s Resolution for this month, in addition to maintaining the momentum on my other reading/writing goals, is to make a huge impact in the first 30 days of my new role. I’m headed out of town next week to visit the central office and put a lot of things into motion, and I’m sure that will create a few blog posts.
Here’s to the new month!
