How to Succeed – Even if You Feel Overwhelmed

By |2019-10-04T08:39:19+00:00October 4th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

“There is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.” - Desmond Tutu That's precisely the approach you should follow when learning something that seems overwhelming. Whether it's learning a new programming language, or adopting a healthy lifestyle, or brushing up on your Spanish - what it takes to succeed is dedication and perseverance. Let's say you want to learn a new programming language. Make practicing a daily habit and stick to it. Work on improving your skills for at least an hour every day. Once you understand a concept, make sure to solidify it by writing small [...]

Being Smart vs. Being **Really** Smart

By |2019-08-28T21:02:07+00:00August 28th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I speak five languages, and I can program a computer in about a dozen programming languages. However, it took me almost two decades to realize that I can work on my own, without being trapped in any "company culture." It's been 18 years that are gone forever, and I'll never have again. My only hope is that my kids will outsmart me.

Imprisoned By Our Own “Success”

By |2019-08-02T20:57:25+00:00August 2nd, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Freedom and enjoying life - while we still can - is more important than scaling our business or climbing the corporate ladder. Too many of us get trapped by our own "success" and forget to live a life that's worth living. Meet old friends. Go out, enjoy nature. Ride a bike. Visit your parents. Forget about office politics, money, appointments, and checking your phone every ten seconds. Life begins when you leave all of that shit behind you!

Is Learning UML a Waste of Time?

By |2019-03-07T09:24:37+00:00March 7th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Somebody left the following comment on my Youtube channel: "UML is a complete and total overengineered waste of time. Write down a list of stuff to do, prioritize, get stuff done. Stop over complicating things." I'm not saying that UML and detailed planning is the ultimate answer in every situation. To-do lists might work for simpler projects. However, when you have to work with complex systems, and design large-scale projects, you can't work effectively without rules and standards. Here's an analogy. You might be able to build a survival shelter without a plan. But you definitely need a plan to [...]
