This is something I’ve been having some difficulties with the past few months. I tend to program in cycles, I have some very productive times, followed by a null in development and overall creativity. In the past I relied heavily on yoga to help reduce the impact these lulls had on my overall person. More recently mountain biking had taken that role, however my season ended shortly with a broken wrist after I took a spill into some rocks.
With that lull right around the corner, and my wrist still not 100%, I was hoping to take a new approach to my lack of output. I’m wrapping up, ending or getting involved in new projects. In other words, I’m taking some of this time where “I should be productive” and applying that energy to simpler tasks, saying good bye to old projects, and hello to new ones. Its less about being extremely productive, but more about addressing some minor issues on my to do.
Somethings on my lull list:
installing HHVM cleaning up messy apache virtual hosts writing a few blog posts
- adding comments or setup Disqus
- do something with my site
So here it goes – in a bit of a lull at the moment. I’m in the midst of addressing 2 of those items. Heres to a slightly different approach.

I managed to wipe my apache config on my development server while performing a few mundane updates. That seems to be another item complete.
