Year 4, Q1 personal readjustments and Artificial Intelligence

During my last learning slot I was focusing on the Wardley maps learning, the generation of content, the increase of deep knowledge and practice of mapping. This has been the second quarter I focused on it and I have the feeling I have a speed of work that can let me go to another chapter.

This quarter I want to do some readjustments about how I work on my priorities and learnings, focusing on habits and my schedule. Why? I have the feeling I’m working in a way that is not focused on the things that are more important and I need to readjust some habits to improve on the real priorities of my life.

This doesn’t mean that I will not add specific learning on a field of knowledge, I will do it, and I was thinking about it so much during Christmas. The focus this time is going to be around some specific areas of Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is a broad knowledge field, so I want to understand the topologies of the different areas and review the learnings I did during 2018.

So the V2MOM for this quarter will be:

  • Vision: Readjust a set of habits and learn about Artificial Intelligence areas.
  • Values: have fun, change habits day by day.
  • Method:
    • For the readjustments, use the principles and suggestions I learned from Triggers book. Add to it some meditation.
    • Artificial Intelligence: read about AI and gain perspective of the work being done, draw some maps that provides me context and understand how these type of projects are planned and executed.
  • Obstacles:
    • Time,
    • Aversion to do some activities that are not comfortable to me.
    • Ariel’s surgery.
  • Measures:
    • Readjustments of behavior:
      • Reschedule the day agenda (once it’s defined, check how much is followed). There are 60 labor days this quarter, so at least do 45 days.
      • Follow the “Daily questions” challenge. There are 90 days this quarter, so complete it at least 70 days.
      • Take the meditation audios and complete at least 70 days.
      • Follow the measures on a notebook: reduce time on computer.
    • Artificial Intelligence:
      • Read 1 book related to the area (1 per quarter).
      • Listen 13 hours of Artificial Intelligence podcasts (1 per week).
      • Draw at least 3 maps related to a specific topic on Artificial Intelligence (1 per month).

Dickson’s dots

I have investing some time this afternoon watching this video about types of people:

You can find a lot of information on https://www.dots.nz/,

The 4 profiles proposed are called dots: yellow, purple, red and blue. I have saved this summary for my poor memory:

Probably one of the dots is the dominant to you, but more than sure is that you have.

I find this type of things useful for understanding the pre-cognitive behaviors and understanding how to communicate with people better.

Year 3, Learning about Wardley Maps Q4

In Q3 slot my focus was to increase my basis about the Wardley Maps. I have translated the book into Spanish and I have started a set of maps related to gameplays.

During this quarter I would like to increase this knowledge with more examples and practical work. The big challenge to me is not going to be able to generate content, but to increase the number of people having conversations about it.

  • Vision: create real examples to cover the main axis of the maps: climate patterns, doctrines and gameplays.
  • Values: have fun, learn the details of the different people about it.
  • Method: create content and publish it on different places, combine the use on investment purposes.
  • Obstacles: Time, Ariel’s surgery.
  • Measures:
    • There are 30 climatic patterns, complete at least 20 examples of climate patterns.
    • There are 40 doctrines, complete at least 30 examples of doctrines.
    • There are 63 gameplays, complete at least 41 examples of gameplays.
    • Be able to attract some attention of this knowledge.

Death line = 31/December/2020

Results (January 2021)

  • Measures (Actual / target):
    • Climatic patterns, (2 / 20).
    • Doctrines, (2 / 30).
    • Gameplays, (5 / 41).
    • I have introduced Wardley maps in 3 events.
    • 9 posts related to concepts and principles.
    • I read a book about maps and its history that was interesting for my background.
    • A lot of interaction with people that is starting to be interested on this topic.

In conclusion, the number of content I have created is not the one I defined as target, but the interaction and evolution has been very positive.

PgMP certification

I have decided some weeks ago that for this quarter I was going to do something different. After 4 quarters investing time on trading, crypto-currencies, machine learning and blockchain it’s time to change.

The challenge is to obtain the PgMP certification.

Following the V2MOM model:

  • Vision: Study, learn and prepare myself to obtain the PgMP Certification.
  • Values: have fun, learn a lot, meet people that has done it or that are willing to obtain the same certification.
  • Method: read the Standard program management, read the PMBoK, do a lot of exercises, look for colleagues that are willing to share their experience and knowledge.
  • Obstacles: Time.
  • Measures:
    • Be PgMP certified at the end of January.

Common telecomunications network: open, free and neutral

This is the purpose of Guifi.net, a place where there are so many interconnected routers, lines and individuals sharing their network with a clear purpose: open, free and neutral.

Coverage map

You can see a map where you will see how extended the network is:

In Sevilla there is a cooperative working under the same principles: SevillaGuifi.net

Guru99, python and more

There are so many tutorials about almost everything, this time I found this one: https://www.guru99.com

  • Guru99 Vision: Fun & Free Education for ALL
  • Guru99 Mission: To bring all feasible courses , online.

Python was the one who took the first look, but I went quickly to other tutorials.

I am inmersed now on a SAP HCM project, so I have read the basis of the SAP Infotype organization and other relevant stuff that the consultants are mentioning every single day.

Read tutorials is hard, but these ones are in real “plain english” so you quickly understand the topics. They are focused on people without knowledge of a topic.
