  1. I want to code more because: I want to reach the level where I can earn money with coding.
  2. I know I’ll have reached my “code more” goal when: I’ll have at least one paying client; I’ll work in a team, which works in Web-development and I will be able to contribute with code for functionality and also design of the product.
  3. My top three assumptions for reaching my goal are:
    o I need to spend at lest 1 hour a day on working on a personal project a.k.a. practice coding
    o I need to learn Wordpress in order to improve my mothers’ website (starting with design; maybe add some functionality), to have first product on my portfolio
    o I need to learn React

  4. Of these assumptions, my riskiest is spending time every day for working on a personal project.

  5. When I think about my riskiest assumption, three possible root causes are:
    o I don’t know, what exactly I would like to make
    o I feel scared to publish something I created without understanding how can I un-publish it, for example, if something goes wrong, I don’t want anybody to see what I’ve done, etc.
    o I afraid, that I will “waste time” practicing something that isn’t that valuable for the “real life’’ jobs/situations

  6. 3 ways I might address these root causes are:
    o Remember – there is no pressure to publish anything. For now, I am doing a job with added value for Visas Iespējas, so no need to put pressure on actually putting something out there just yet.
    o First, practice WordPress by making a simple blog/website for HipstersGlasses – add section about Balkan Trip, section with photos and introduction/landing page. This is to practice and get familiar with Wordpress. I don’t need to publish it just yet.
    o While practicing, I will come up with questions and I can ask them in morning “podcasts” with my team members. Also – by practicing and searching information I will find information related to what’s actual and what’s not.

  7. Of these, the biggest cause that’s worth tackling first is I just opening the Wordpress and starting to play around.
