Some you learn the easy way, and some you learn the hard way.
As a creator, you’re at war with yourself every day.
It’s a competition with yourself not with others.
Here are the 5 most important lessons (so far) I learned in my journey of sharing/creating content as a developer!
Fast is fun for a while.
Alone a youth runs fast, with a mentor/senior may be slow, but together they go far.
A Great Dream Requires A Great Team.
Going far simply can’t be done without people to support you.
They may be great people, but they are still people.
“Heros” still struggle & have limits that everyone else has, they still put their pants on one leg at a time.
When I let the people I admire be human.
I find grace and compassion for them.
No matter your talent, there is always someone doing much better than you.
It’s hard not to be jealous but try to praise others in similar work.
If You have something to share or to create.
- Create it
- Say it
- Build it
- Write it
You will not experience life without conflict.
This is one of the hardest things I had to experience and learn as early as possible.
“Society wins when developers learn how to resolve conflicts.”
“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.”
Patience is so difficult.
There are things we have no choice but to wait for and there are things we should wait for but choose not to.
Be Patient! Don’t Rush in Your Career Growth.
