Another month gone, so we are now into May 2016.
Its been quite a frantic and busy month and even more so than March, April seemed to disappear in the blink of an eye.
April contained another excellent #appsharelive event which once again involved some excellent App ideas. In addition I found another site for app ideas which has further allowed me to add to my toolbox of app ideas. April also saw me take a trip down to London for the Westminster Education forum which I blogged about previously, and I got my #staffrm mug.
Throughout April I managed to blog a number of times, maintaining my target as part of #44weeks to blog at least once per week. I keep trying to set aside a specific day to write and post my blogs however never seem to manage to keep to the schedule I try to set myself. Going forward I think I will need to just accept that this irregularity is likely to continue and that I will just need to take care to ensure I manage the minimum of 1 blog entry per week. One particular technique to help with this is that I am setting a weekly set of goals and am including the need to blog on this goal list.
My twitter activity in April increased on March largely due to my involvement in #sltchat on a couple of occasions plus my attendance at the Westminster Education Forum during which I tweeted a number of comments and images. I also finally got round to starting to tidy up my twitter account in terms of creating lists, etc. Clearly I would have benefited from doing this at the start of using twitter rather than leaving it until now which required significantly more work to sort. I will need to try and ensure I periodically tidy things up as I go forward as opposed to putting it off.
My book reading in April was pretty steady although “Thinking, fast and slow” is quite a significant book to read and therefore took me some time to get through. I am already making very quick progress through “Drive” which is already around 50% complete after only a couple of days. It is interesting that I had selected both books independent of one another however having started “Drive” I was interested to find the author D. Pink referenced D. Kahneman the author of “Thinking, fast and slow”.
Fitness and exercise still sits as an area where I am making little progress although I need to admit that I did exceed my step target on a number of days in April which is an improvement and my overall weekly exercise level in terms of average steps per week has steadily increased in the last few weeks. I need to try and continue to build on this.
I have also set myself a couple of new goal areas however I may write about those later. Overall April has been another good month so onwards to May.
