Drop100 2020, p1


This time last year I wrote about the new iteration of my Drop100 Project and vowed to make it an annual thing. Here’s this year’s version, which I’m only doing for the last two weeks of the year. This time, rather than dropping/doing 100 projects per week, I’m focusing on 100 overall (50 per week).

I’ve already deleted dozens of single tasks, many GB of files, and the outdated projects that I dropped some time ago but hadn’t yet removed from my task/project system. Those are just extra bonus collateral for this meta-project that I don’t even count :)

The following projects will be done or deleted within the next 7 days:
  1. complete all Christmas gift wrapping & sending (including online gifts)
  2. finish Data Analytics & Visualization course requirements
  3. obtain & install new Tableau (student license)
