Goals for 2016

Looking back at my Goals for 2015. More community, Work-live balance and running a PR. In 2015 I worked hard. I’m really happy about blogging with a steady pace. This year I want to set some goals again.

More community

KROMKRATHOG2I aimed at three posts a week with the Friday post being a roundup of internet reads. Posting my other reads on twitter. My blogging was consistent.

For 2016 I want to write larger blogposts. Think longer posts with more detail, but fewer of them.

Work-live balance

KROMKRATHOG3On my projects I promoted time boxed meetings. For better balance I blocked two evenings in my schedule. Also my phone / iPad / Laptop remains untouched until kids in bed.

In 2016 the two evenings will remain blocked and I’ll even add another one to really engage / commit to a meeting.

Set a new running PR

KROMKRATHOG1Not to brag but I ran a PR in 2015 on 5K, Half Marathon and Marathon (my first 😉 ).

This leaves the 10K for 2016? Maybe, but I’m keeping this running a PR. I’m more motivated to do the hard work when it has a purpose.


ID-100189504In 2016 I want to do more talking and less coding. Talking with clients about their needs, talking with colleagues about solutions, talking with developers about code. I still want to do coding, but not as the primarily task in my work.

About erictummers

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
