library is open late today but kinda woke up with a face thing so.

not going to study today, well sort of, I've reached this part that might make for a decently long boring blog post on six sigma foundations as it were but I think I'm going to take my time with it.

so in honor of the still very baby new year

ny resolutions part six

these may just come in parts now. also realizing how important it is that I should label these blogs with a date so yay for organization and structure.

wow neat segue.

As far as "review" goes as part of my ny-res I haven't set up a whole "review-day" or an entire time where I'm paging through everything, scanning for diamonds (or other rocks. other rocks are cool too). It's mostly when I remember how long it has been since I have, and usually it's been about a few days in between doing actual review, one long session here, one ten minute session there.

But through trying to track a bunch of things and sort of failing to do it all consistently... but I feel like I've gotten a little bit of a broader view of certain structures that help make smaller wins seem bigger.

Structures like washing my protein shake bottle out right after I use it. Because it's cosmically easy to rinse it out and sometimes I just...well...let it sit after a workout until the next day and it gets an unnecessarily rank smell to it and extra work to actually clean it. Then, huge plus. I can inhale my protein shake RIGHT after I work out.

Big ups.

Review has been going well overall and I'm starting to see the intention in other things I do like opening up old data analysis coursework or rereading a chapter in my Six Sigma book so I can write up the most sizzling Six Sigma blog posts. :P

The other new year's resolution, getting a Six Sigma cert, is going how studying things goes when you first start out. It's mostly general background knowledge in the textbook at the moment but I've gotten to some groundwork concepts and although I'm not fully convinced that Six Sigma will save the world someday, I'm starting to get a better idea of where it could work, where it wouldn't and open to what else might be out there as far as process improvement & management go.

It is interesting but I keep thinking about skipping to the harder chapters but the other thing I've been doing has been taking it slow.

Like binging Cobra Kai on Netflix this past weekend.

And I totally don't recommend it. But through all that 80's music teaming with the teenage/parent drama in all it's soap opera type vibrance and fruitless (and completely brutal I might add) karate bloodshed I realized that all the smallest things I accomplished those days felt like the biggest wins and the bigger wins felt grandiose. And that I don't ever want to do that again, well maybe like an evening or two or three but you get it.

What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure I've washed my protein shake mixer cup. Like 80% sure. I can't see it so that's a good sign. And I probably won't be watching too much tv in the near future.

That's how the new orbit is going.

Thanks for reading.
