My neighbour is awesome. He had the mind of a maker, but in a grafter’s body. He is a salesman, an electrician by trade.
He always comes to me with ideas and is amazed that I could put them into code. He’s pushing me to actually put my own ideas into practice. He challenges me by asking how much time I could invest in myself and my projects over the week. Could I do X? Why? Why not?
Sometimes I need someone to give me these pushes. I don’t really get them from work. Either way, why do I need them? Why can’t I motivate myself?
I’m going to have a discussion with Nay to plan out my time better. To block out evenings to invest in myself. To work. To produce. To improve.
I need a good example of existing work that I can use to show other people what I can do. I need to work on selling myself, explains what I do and why I’m worth the investment. He asked me and I had no idea how to explain it. How stupid!
I’ve blocked out this Saturday to do some work. I have a plan and, as always, I just need to follow through.
