So, yesterday I posed the question: should I spread myself out amongst multiple projects? In organizing my thoughts on this topic, I listed the projects that I’m involved in. The list is quite long, and now that I’m looking at it, I’m trying to figure out the projects I should cut down on.
The question that I’m facing is this: Which of these projects would take up the most time (if I were keeping up with all of them), and which ones am I most committed to?
|Project||Time per Week||Committment|
|Drawing/Sketching||2.5 hours||Very strong|
|Teaching Redemption||1.5 hours||Pretty strong|
|Points of View||1 hour||Strong on paper, weak in practice|
|Playing the piano and violin||2 hours||Moderate|
|Kamidake||Less than 1 hour||Moderate|
|Writing||2 hours||Weak to moderate|
|AtheDocs||Half an hour, maybe||Weak to moderate|
|Gardening||4 hours||Fairly weak|
|AtheOS programming||6 to 8 hours||Weak. It’s fun, but not hugely appealing.|
|BeOS programming||6 to 8 hours||Weak|
Well. From this chart, it’s pretty clear that I should abandon my attempts at programming. Thinking back, I realize that I rarely complete the
I’m going to keep gardening, because that’s partly therapeutic. I don’t need to stop writing, either; I can take a vacation from writing without hurting anyone. AtheDocs doesn’t require much time, nor does Kamidake.
And I’m pretty strongly committed to the rest of this list, so I guess I should focus on closing down my spurious programming projects.
Anything else going on? Well, AIC has announced that the third Tenchi Muyo! OVA will be released next spring, concurrent with a new
Miyazaki’s new film, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi, opened July 20th and drew a 20% larger audience than Princess Mononoke on its first weekend. Good to hear. I can’t wait to see it over here.
