Overall my focus and productivity remain at a high level. I’m working through the 12 weeks of machine learning Substack content and really digging into that effort. It will be well beyond just writing a post 15 minutes before and clicking the publish button type of effort. Sometimes that can be fun and entertaining, but to really dig in and work at a deeper level that is not the way to go about it. At this point, I might even end up working out of one Google Doc for the entire Substack process. That is a departure from my put everything written in a day inside a single word processing document labeled by the day it was written. You can imagine that creates problems when working on academic papers and other efforts that require sustained efforts to achieve a higher quality end product.
All right that felt really good. What you might ask? The second Substack post has been set to publish on Friday, February 5, 2021 at 5:00 PM (Denver). The very first post hit 23 total views. I’m hopeful that the second post will garner a little more viewership. One of the things that I have noticed is that Substack requires you to hustle and tell people about your work. The audience won’t just show up to read the words.
