PRODUCTIVITY

GETTING THINGS DONE AND OTHER LIFE LESSONS

Like most people I have struggled with productivity and time management. With smartphones, social media, and what not, there are a plethora of distractions. These distractions take our attention and our willpower.

One of my passions has become the development of personal strategies to get things done. I have done a significant amount of research into different methods and although I have not always succeeded with implementation, I have learned a lot of valuable lessons. In this blog, I will try to discuss what I have discovered.

GIS

LEARNING ARCGIS BASICS

I have been a GIS professional for almost 20 years. Just typing this amazes me. It feels like just yesterday that I took my first class. Over my time utilizing GIS, I have realized that I learn something new each day. I will try to discuss what I have learned.

  • Data Management and Visualization
  • Location, location, location
  • ArcGIS Online and Javascript Development
  • PostgreSQL and Geodatabase

PROGRAMMING

LIFE AS A SELF-TAUGHT HACK

I never trained as a programmer but over time I have been “forced” to learn. I am by no means an expert, but I truly enjoy coding. It is a good day when I get to solve a problem via programming.
