Do you know how to get the shit out of your coding skills?
You can do two things with your coding skills. Sell your skills on a per-hour basis, a pretty good source of income, or use your skill to create an app, a product and experience the compound returns on your skills sooner or later.
The developer who writes the code aggressively, without regard for her peers earning pretty good income for more or less the same skills, and partying out loud on the weekends more frequently than she could, often ends up with more opportunities on her way and more possibilities to influence the world positively (including her own world!).
On the other hand, her seemingly happy peers, end up with 7-15% pay increase every year till the market is booming and then when the time is not good, might lose their job wondering what they will do next.
And, of course, it’s the same for designers, writers, doctors, advocates, painters and every kind of creators out there.
Sell your creations for “guaranteed” low returns or compound it through your abilities to deal with an uncertain next.
Is any next certain?
