It’s not the first time in my life that I am making a New Year’s Resolution, but it is the first time that I did a proper Life Planning session.

I googled and copy pasted lots of relevant questions into a doc and answered them truthfully to myself. What makes me happy, what I like/don’t like doing, what’s important to me etc.. Now I have a much clearer picture of how I would like to develop myself in 2017 and based my New Year’s Resolution on the Life Planning session.

My 2017 New Year’s Resolution


  • Focus 200% on every task I do
    • get it done
    • check it from a technical standpoint
    • check it again from a high level view and story perspective
    • lock myself away in a room for less distractions to get the most important things for that day done
  • Leave work every day at 6.30pm
    • finish tasks quickly and on time (but precise and double checked)
    • manage expectations around how long things take
    • allocate time to unplanned/ad-hoc tasks
