Every journey needs a map – even if you don’t end up sticking exactly to the route! This is the map I have so far… with thanks to the generous “real life data scientists” who took time out to discuss the journey with me and give their input – it’s amazing how many kind people one meets on the road :).

If this were an old-fashioned journey I’d need a compass too – and James Clear’s advice “Commit to a process, not a goal is definitely it.

Deviations and details to be filled in as the journey unfolds…!
