  1. I want to code more because: I want to be more productive at work. I also want to be able to work on side projects.

  2. I know Iโ€™ll have reached my โ€œcode moreโ€ goal when: I will have completed 5 - 10 hours of coding outside of work projects. Workwise, I will have complete the project due by the end of April and added additional functionality to my other work project.

  3. My top three assumptions for reaching my goal are:

    • I will get the clarification on the requirements I need for the work project
    • I will not get stuck in analysis paralysis.
    • I will find something I am interested in working on outside of work
  4. Of these assumptions, my riskiest is analysis paralysis. I am always questioning the design pattern I am using and not sure if I am applying it correctly.

  5. When I think about my riskiest assumption, three possible root causes are:

    • My lack of experience
    • Lack of feedback
    • So many options
  6. 3 ways I might address these root causes are:

    • Code more and see what works
    • Reach out for feedback (coworkers for work project and CodeNewbie community for personal)
    • Stick the option I pick
  7. Of these, the biggest cause thatโ€™s worth tackling first is just picking an option.
