I really love the idea of an accomplishment journal.
I don't think I've ever believed in myself so much since I've been learning web development. For my whole life, I didn't think I could really be good at anything. And I've had moments in my learning journey when I felt the weight of that lack of belief in myself because I was having trouble understanding a concept or becoming overwhelmed by how much more there still is for me to learn. But when I stop and look at where I am and what I know now versus where I started, suddenly I can't deny my own ability to grow anymore. And the good, fuzzy feelings that brings motivates me to grow even more! It's a dopamine high, basically.
So I think keeping an accomplishment journal is a great idea because it would facilitate that.
Um, thank you for coming to my TED talk lol.

Amazing! I believe in you!!!

more importantly-- the data about your journey means you have to be honest with yourself, i.e. that you HAVE learned a lot, and not too self-critical.
