For example, I decided not to do Hack Design anymore. It just wasn’t working for me. At the end of the day, I don’t want to become some master front end developer, so why work on things that don’t help my end goals. Yeah, I want to be proficient, but I don’t need to know every last detail about why you should choose one thing over another. I just need basic knowledge and then I’m good to go.
I’ve also realized the importance of focusing on one large goal at a time. I have so many different things in my life that I want to accomplish, and sometimes I need to remind myself to take a step back and realize that Rome wasn’t built in a day. I don’t need to learn everything and become a master all at once. The smaller things that I kind of want to do take away from my focus on the larger things that I want to accomplish. Focusing on one or two things allows me to be the most productive.
Since cutting back on some of the things I half heartedly wanted to accomplish, I have gotten so much farther in my main areas or goals. I’m excited to see the full results the changes in my routine bring me.
