Narrowing Focus

I’ve been trying to learn too many things at once. This was my main problem in the past. I would focus on one language like javascript, then decide that I wanted to learn python, and kept going back and forth without going past the beginner stages in either one. Although this time I’ve kept to one language, I’ve been putting too much focus on the wrong areas.

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.
