Weeknotes

A weeknote is a weekly checkin of activity. Matt Webb has written about their history and why he writes them. I try to write them for one of two reasons: when I'm in work, it reminds me to continue doing work on my personal projects, even when I feel there's too much to do; when I'm out of work, it helps to measure the passing of time.

The poker chips were a lightweight method of measuring my time I started in 2020 as a response to the timelessness of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The different colours are meaningful.
