The 12 Week Year—Week Four

in the12weekyear •  3 months ago


Define one step for each day, so tiny, that you know you will carry it out. Break the project down into daily bites of work. Then take action every day.

Know in every moment what needs to be done to move you toward your goal.

Always ask this before you do a task: Does doing this get me closer to creating what I want to create?

Only plan items you can execute! Make your plans achievable. Less might be better. When you make plans you cannot achieve, your motivation will be killed!

The Week In Retrospect

Look at the previous week, before planning the next week. Do this every Monday morning.

What has worked? What did not work? Do you need to adjust The Machine? Be honest, find the truth. Plan the next week.

  • Identify problems that stand in the way of you achieving the outcome this week
  • Diagnose problems to get at their causes​
  • Design plans that will get you around your problems and toward the defined outcome
  • Push through to completion. Do what is necessary.
  • Define the outcome for next week that will bring you closer to your goal.

2nd of September 2018 Recap Of Week Four

Well, last week was a good week, although I have some open points on my list above. But the EnterKeyScreen is feature complete. I have to wire it up to the other screens. At the moment a user can only scan the private posting key's QR code. Next week I will implement the form to allow a user to enter the key manually.

My goal for this 12-week year has been the following:

Pay one tall Starbucks soy latte with earned beneficiaries rewards.

In week five I will change the goal, although it is no-go in the 12 week year methodology. The new goal will be: publish iSteem to the App Store

The main reason is that I do not want to earn beneficiary rewards through the app. I thought it would be a good way to earn some Steem with the app. Meanwhile, I changed my mind. I think it is much better to earn the trust of the Steem community first. Money comes second.
