SCRUM

I've made half a dozen lists of things I want to accomplish by year's end, or by 1001 days, or whenever, but listing doesn't really work unless I break things down into more manageable chunks.  So from now on, I'm only listing projects month-by-month, with breakdowns.  I think it'll help.

Over on FB, in the Whitechapel community (formerly the FreakAngels forum for fans of Warren Ellis, Si Spurrier, and the like), there's a thread that's going on called "The New Scrum." Scrum relies on two things mainly, that small, tight group of goal focused players and the sprint. The sprint is the bit of the whole you've decided to bite right now.  DUE IN ONE WEEK.  You're meant to work on only that project for the week.

There's a million things I want to do, but I've decided to tackle only 2 - 4 per month, and alternate the sprints weekly.

This week, I've decided to work toward my goal of creating a podcast.

Ultimate Goal: Have a podcast prepared for submission by year's end (preferably, ready to submit to Radiotopia's PodQuest, if they do that yearly, otherwise, looking for another network to submit to).

Sprint: Write one new story.

*extra info for onlookers: The theme of my podcast is First Times, but I don't know what to call it, except just that.  I already have one story about my First Date.  I also hope to have guest spots.

I haven't decided on next week's goal yet.

I think splitting up this big goals into manageable chunks is a great idea! I believe in you! :)
