✅ Refactor new feature and state architecture at work

This is basically finished, with just a little bit left to go in this sprint!

✅ Get DevLifts to $2,000/mo revenue

Achieved!

✅ Welcome 10 new DevLifts open source contributors

Achieved! We welcomed 7 new contributors on our API and CLI projects, and there were 2-3 more we welcomed on other repos — so this is basically achieved.

✅ Make at least an additional $2,000 in freelance income

Achieved!

✅ Make 1 non-DevLifts open source PR

One?! Ha! I made 4! This month, I contributed to Gatsby, Spectrum, and React State Museum. Hacktoberfest mission: accomplished! 😃

🚫 Sort through my Evernote

Didn’t make much progress on this one at all. Geez! Get it together, man!

🚫 Complete at least one coding course in my queue

I didn’t complete any of the courses in my queue, but I did go through a lot of Kent C. Dodds’ new Testing JavaScript course.

Personal

✅ Hit 450lb on deadlift

Achieved! I hit 460lb on October 14. 💪💪

🚫 Hit 405lb on squat

I didn’t quite hit this yet. Last max day was October 14, and I squatted 390lb. I think I could hit 405lb fresh today, but I won’t know for a while. I think my next max day is over a month away.

🚫 Hit 305lb on bench

I didn’t quite hit this yet. On my last max day, I benched 290lb. It went up, but not to 305lb yet!

🚫 Read 1 book

Wow, such no read. I really miss the habit of reading before bed, and I really want to get back into that. But my wife and I have been enjoying watching Friends for the first time this month, so that’s what I’ve been doing before bed.

🚫 Land a bow and arrow choke

I missed a couple of weeks of BJJ this month because of traveling, so I haven’t had as much opportunity to achieve this goal. Haven’t done it yet!

✅ Pay off 1 debt

Achieved! We fixed my wife’s car ($2,200 😵) finally after 6 months of me driving it because it wasn’t very safe. Feel’s good!
