  1. Why do you want to code more

    • I want to code more to further develop my skills and attain employment as a software developer.
  2. How will you know when you've reached your goal?

    • I will know that I've reached my goal when I am able to consistently tackle more complex projects and dive deeper into various interview prep materials.
  3. What were some of the assumptions about reaching your goal that you identified?

    • I will dedicate enough time daily to perform provided tasks and work on personal projects.
    • I will invest in additional learning materials to grow my knowledge.

Nice! I think we have similar ideas about how to know we've reached our goals! Having enough of a sense of the language or the platform you're working with to know how to build (or work towards building) essentially any project or function set you can imagine!

As for the dedicated time thing, it's a major issue for me too. When I'm practicing my art skills, any amount of time will do. I imagine it will be similar for coding as long as we select the right kind of practice! A short challenge on CodeWars? Reading more about how to use a function you haven't tried before? This can be done even in 5 minutes on your phone so when you're really pressed for time you can still take a small step forward!
