I set a goal for myself at the beginning of 2014 to contribute to an open source project I didn’t start, and get my contribution accepted by the developers. As the year went on, I cataloged it in a special section of my blog. Now that the year is over, I’m moving it to a regular post. I’m pretty sure that this is not up to date, since I’ve barely touched my blog in about a year. For example I know I contributed to the Selenium project, and I think that was still in 2014, but it’s not listed anywhere here. At any rate, aside from this paragraph, I moved the thing whole sale from its own page into a regular blog entry.
Partly inspired by Ryan Holiday’s “This is How I Work” on Lifehacker.com, I challenged myself to
read consume (audiobooks count) 52 books in 2014, and review all of them.
I’ve been using Goodreads for years, and only after I decided to do this did I realize that they already allow users to track goals. You can see the Goodreads widget above tracking my progress.
