On your coding skills

Do you know how to get the shit out of your coding skills?

No?

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.

How to Get the Shit Out of Your Coding Skills

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?

In search of self-worth

Do you know what your self is worth?

Are you able to see things that are beyond your “logical” thinking boundaries?

What clarity you have about:

yourself;
your vision;
your biz co-founders;
your product idea;

or your biz/startup?

Does your clarity about the above is considered highly opinionated, unreasonable and outside the generally accepted norms by the others?

If yes, then chances are you might be creating your destiny in a way you won’t regret later.

But if your default is never to sound opinionated, unreasonable and you always strive to act within the accepted norms, then you’re probably not living your full potential.

Pause. Think. Reflect. And do what’s in harmony of your vision of your future.
