19:46 writing about tasks
Read some tip from someone I follow (Mukund?) about writing about everything you spend a lot of time doing, regardless of what or where it is, to better articulate, display, and understand how you feel about it and where you want it to go. First week of work is going well. I love that I work with good software developers, and that I don't have to worry about feature ideas yet. At previous jobs I tried to be too creative, obsessing over the work and pushing feature after feature that I wanted. My features had less relevance to the product's success than I would have liked. Most of them were related to tech debt, which doesn't matter as long as the product works. It's nice to let other people handle the prioritization while you handle the coding. Someone tells you to focus on a feature or gives you a scope, you take over and fix everything in that scope, and you're done. No reinventing the world. Strict requirements and questions to push and prod with, but most of the time this is the responsibility of the product people.
The business idea is so easy and straightforward. It's going to be a winner because this team will make it a winner. I will make this company win. Leslie was so happy when she told me that she was just grateful to have a job, her ideal job, the job she loved. I will code and code and communicate and communicate until we do so much that we can win. We can be the dominant force in the market by EOY 2024. Incredibly grateful to have such clear goalposts and to be given the opportunity to something that matters so much. Emissions reporting is unsexy but it will run the world.
Photo work is going well. Ordering prints for people is a good problem to have. I will keep posting day after day after day. Worried about stagnating, but I have plenty of ideas - low shutter speed, get in the studio, do some more fashion work.
Also worried about getting rid of clothes. Realizing that the texture of an item and how it fits matter so much. My daily life feels negatively or positively impacted by how mobile I am, how comfortable my clothes are, and how they make me look. I don't know how to hone a uniform, but I'll keep trying to sell things until I have to consolidate. For now I'll stay comfortable.
