Journal.Kim —A Metasystem Experiment

It gets easier. Every day it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day, that’s the hard part. But it does get easier.
—Bojack Horseman



Hi, I'm Brennan! I created this website to provide weekly updates regarding my goals (systems) that I currently have on a website called Beeminder as a way to keep myself accountable, as well as a place for general draft writing. For more information on the theory behind this idea, please check out the following links where I have written extensively about this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Fifty-Three: Future Akrasia

Posted: March 13, 2021
Week Fifty-three! Things have been going really great for me the past few weeks, productivity-wise. I’m finally starting to chip away at the seemingly immortal list of things that I’ve been meaning to do forever, now. The biggest update I have is that I’ve been using Noom for the past two weeks ...

Fifty-Two: Framework Beeminder

Posted: March 6, 2021
Week Fifty-two! Finally, reaching a canonical year a few weeks late due to my usual tardiness. I decided to do a bit more of a qualitative write-up for my year review on LinkedIn and my main blog. Which made me beg the question–should I be aiming to be more metric/quantitatively-focused, or qual...

Fifty-One: The Current Metasystem

Posted: February 27, 2021
Week Fifty-one! I’m recovering from a minor surgery and just settling in. Overall, things are going good. I’m finally diving into Eleventy which I wish I had done sooner! It’s similar to Jekyll, but a lot more powerful and flexible, and although relatively niche right now, I see a bright future a...

Fifty: Recalibration

Posted: February 20, 2021
Week Fifty! Of course, late again. Although this time it was only partly my fault, as I had a minor medical emergency and a rather surprise moving out. I’ve been diligently keeping up with my Beeminders, though! Only one derailment, /photos. And also a non-legit derail on /distraction, sadly addi...

Forty-Nine: A Year In

Posted: February 8, 2021
Week Forty-nine! Missed a week! Or rather, I’ve already missed a Journal kim entry, but I’m alright with that, since I’ve been sliding further and further from my weekly deadline of Monday to all the way to Friday! By just waiting a few more days, I can essentially just “derail” for a week and r...

Forty-Eight: Intuitive Productivity

Posted: January 29, 2021
Week Forty-eight! Quite a bit of discussion this week, how exciting! I suppose I’ll try my best to respond to it all. How are you tracking all the courses? –@experimentallearner I wrote about this in entry #41 a little bit, but my approach to this is twofold: Have one Beeminder that’s outco...
