Welcome to mid-February where 80% of New Year's resolutions typically come to die. I wanted to share a trick I use to stay motivated throughout the year, specifically around data visualization:
Askmeevery is a no frills emailing services where you can sign up to send yourself daily reminders via email for goal accountability. You pick the question (i.e. Did I work on any data visualizations today?) and pick the time of your email reminder. Once you get the email, reply with a response or a simple 'Y' or 'N'. Askmeevery tracks the responses, sends a weekly trend report and lets you download and play with the data.
I've been using Askmeevery to keep me on track with a reminder to work on data (or at least try) everyday, outside of work. Here are some results.
