Here is my reflection for today...

I want to code more because: I want to pursue mastery at my craft, so that
I can mix it with my unique set of talents and abilities in a way that can
fulfill my mission and help others.

I know I’ll have reached my “code more” goal when: Code becomes part of my

My top three assumptions for reaching my goal are:

  • Have the time to do it
  • Balance with all other activities in life
  • Keep it relevant to my motivation above

Of these assumptions, my riskiest is: to keep everything in balance.

When I think about my riskiest assumption, three possible root causes are:

  • Work demands
  • Family demands
  • Pushing too hard while neglecting spiritual, family, health, and work

3 ways I might address these root causes are:

  • Designing a routine that fits the current season of my life
  • Being flexible when the routine doesn't work out as expected
  • Be ready to change what is not working and keep trying to make it work

Of these, the biggest cause that’s worth tackling first is designing a routine
that fits my current season in life.

Hey George. Very well said. I really like the part about "my current season in life." We are always going through changes, and life comes up. I struggle with this sometimes and lose my way because some life event happened and have a hard time finding my way back. I'm here to help fix that and meet some similar people!

Also, are you Brazilian? I noticed the last name. Maybe from Portugal? Fala portugues? Falamos migo!

Hi Brandon, thanks for your comment. Yes, life comes up a lot, especially when you have kids around. I agree 100% that sometimes it's so hard to get back on track and I love the fact you're here to fix that and help others. We need to get back on track and course correct practically every day, don't we?

About your question, yes and yes. Fiquei muito surpreso de ver isso no comentário. Você pratica Português com frequência?
