Another uneventful but productive week. I'm not really sure if I prefer the boring, , and nothing else type of week or those super stressful pulling-my-hair-out type of weeks.
Most of my week was studying for my CIPP/E which really means re-reading, questioning, and doubting everything.
Why does your brain do that?
I know this stuff - I've know it a while - but here I go thinking I don't know anything and can't even list the data principals without missing out (and I write and talk about these all the time!).
So yeah, a privacy heavy week and it will be a privacy busy weekend as well. Exam is on Monday so let's hope for the best.
To make the week even more privacy heavy a bunch of decisions and reports were published from Facebook to Cookie Banner Taskforce reports and everything in between. I should start counting the number of pages I read to stay on top of things - it's insane. And I don't even feel on top of it - the moment I get it they go an release another. Go easy guys - we just can't spend our whole day reading. Please just drip feed it instead.
In other news...
Signed another "we need to switch to GA4, yesterday..." client - these are also becoming routine and my guess is that they will increase with time. In March, when Shopify switches over, is when I'm expecting the biggest hit. I should probably prepare for that, but I'm not.
I've also managed to tackle my main goals for the week:
1. Studied - a lot! (no surprise here)
2. Finished my motivational letter my school application
3. Applies for the greek intensive program
It feels good to get those done - I'm soooo bad at getting things done in time.
Good news is that my accountability group (it's just 3 friends who are all building their own biz) is back on track which makes sticking to my goals for the week a lot easier.
(Another book called Understanding Privacy also just arrived in the mail, this one by Heather Burns)
Best Short Read:
Why? because it's just a repeat of everything most of us have been saying for ever.
I summed it up this way:
