What Do You Do?

Documentation
Besides the usual movies, books, year goals, etc, in 2018, I’m keeping track of personal relationships. I’ve got a spreadsheet of every person I see face-to-face and every run-in in 2018. I’m also taking photos of each meeting. It’s been a great experiment in being more intentional with time and seeing people that I want to see as much as possible.
