This is a very short, entirely unremarkable retro.
But it only took 38 minutes to write!
I’ve got a fair amount of half-formed thoughts and reflections that I want to write up properly, but for now
I’m just checking the box and getting back to work.
- Coming back to work after six weeks off was harder than I expected.
- November is going to be a busy month.
Last Month’s Profit
Solid, if unremarkable month profit-wise.
Last Month’s Goals
Pretty bad month for goals. I blame this on struggling to get into a groove early in the month.
||Ship a new Pegasus release
||Choose a topic for my next Django guide
Ship a new Pegasus release: B
I shipped a small release, but there is a huge backlog of changes that still haven’t gone out.
Choose a topic for my next Django guide: C
I think I’m going to write about deployment.
But mostly because that’s a large part of what’s been changing in Pegasus recently.
I didn’t really put any proactive time or energy into this one though.
Time breakdown for October 2022
Pegasus is back to dominating my time, with a long tail of other things getting 5-10% of my attention.
This Month’s Goals
No room for exploration this month. I’ll need to be pretty heads down just to hit the minimum bar for success.
- Ship the current Pegasus release. Hopefully this week.
- Write a decent piece of Django content.
- Run the annual Black Friday sale.
For the past two years, November has been by far the most important/profitable month for Pegasus.
Hoping to keep it that way! 🙏
