I thought this would a nice way of sharing our keyboard-related resolutions and, possibly, checking-in with updates throughout the year. Daunting, I know!
I pick a theme for myself every year (this year it’s a quote, which I’ll post below). In keeping with that theme, my keyboard resolutions for 2021 are:
- One of my favorite posts about keyboards is jshufelt’s build logs. Starting with my Gingham project board, I’d like to keep a build log for all my projects this year.
- I’d like to be more skeptical about my preferences and more curious about others’ preferences, so I can better appreciate the range of builds, aesthetics, and ideas in this community.
- Be patient (which is a perennial keyboard resolution, I guess :))
The quote is from a literary blog called Brainpickings:
Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind. Ours is a culture where one of the most embarrassing things is not to have an opinion, so we form our opinions hastily, based on quick impressions and borrowed convictions. It’s so disorienting to simply say, “I don’t know,” but it’s infinitely more rewarding to understand than to be right — even if that means changing your mind.
