I found it pretty interesting how organization and task management is a very different affair when you are in a small group or on your own compared to the process you outlined in the larger organization.  It might be unfortunate luck in who I've worked for, but I've found that most of the plans I've seen from employers usually don't work as expected.

Thank you everyone for positing your thoughtful answers.  For the last year or so I just keep thinking about the next couple of steps to improve the situation from where it is currently at.  I definitely have a vision of where I'd like things to be in two years, but I don't have an outline of where I should be by which date. 

I'm more like "OK, that worked pretty well, how about we do that again and add some of this to evaluate?"  One flaw in this approach is that I spend a lot of times in the "what do I need to do today?"  mode instead of planning on what I need to have in place tomorrow.  For me, honestly, it is mostly a bandwidth thing, but I am making efforts to delegate the more simple and time consuming tasks to others so that I can start making more of a dent in the long term plan.

If so, how far?

Also, how close did you end up sticking to your plan?

Thanks for the pics and video.  Does the motor stay above the water there on the side and then drive a shaft down to the propeller?

~25 mpg for a minivan is pretty good.  I am kind of wishing I had an electric vehicle for around town, I don't have the budget for it at the moment.  The bulk of my driving is sub 20 miles.

Walmart will soon use hundreds of A.I. robot janitors to scrub the floors of US stores

Quote
The world's largest retailer by revenue will soon have autonomous robots scrubbing the floors of hundreds of Walmart stores across the U.S. Walmart will deploy 360 floor-scrubbing robots armed with computer vision and AI capabilities in hundreds of its stores by the end of January 2019, the company said this week in a joint press release with San Diego-based AI company Brain Corporation.

.......

Walmart has already deployed robots to take over other work usually performed by human employees, including using shelf-scanning robots in dozens of US stores to search for inventory and prices while also locating misplaced items.

Walmart is looking to rely more and more on automation in the future an evolution that could free up current employees to perform more efficient, higher value tasks, but which some critics worry could also result in lower wages and fewer jobs at a company that is currently America's largest private employer with over 1.5 million paid workers.

The Oracle one seems pretty accurate to me, probably to the long term detriment of the company.

That solar kayak seems like a nice setup, though I think I'd want a small battery pack so I wouldn't have to worry about shade that much.  Hack a Day is a pretty cool site.
