Retrospective May 2022

It’s been a challenging month in many ways so almost everything has been on pause. Sometimes big blockers hinder progress and the only to way to deal with them is to wait them out.

Contributing to the digital transformation of the non-profit sector

Working at a national non-profit organisation to embed product thinking and practice

Been progressing a few projects but not making the progress I expected to by now. June is likely to be the same but hopefully July will bring more clarity.

Participating in online communities for social good, innovation, product and digital

No progress on this goal.

Continually developing my knowledge, skills and practice

Formal education

Didn’t do anything on my BSL course, on the Gitlab Remote Working course. I’ve been thinking a little about doing a management course.

Informal learning

I didn’t do much on my side-projects but I’m really keen to give my Ambivalent MBA on Charity in the 21st century more time. It’s an exciting idea in lots of ways, using agile education to create and study your own course.

Irregular Ideas is going well and has 39 subscribers. Still enjoying writing it although I have no idea where it’s going.

Reflective practice

I wrote weeknotes on schedule every week.

Leading an intentional life


My nomadic life along the coastline was on pause. Back soon.

Health & well-being

I’m still not doing enough to improve my physical health.

Financial independence

Runaway at 42 months.
