Listen to your inner voice… What does she tell you? Mine tells me to keep learning, crafting, enjoying. > Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. > — Pelé
Let’s talk with your problems
Procrastination — it doesn’t come from your inner voice, stop searching excuses. It’s your voice, not your inner one that tells you to do it tomorrow.
Fear — It’s one of the cause of procrastination, the fear of not having the wanted outcome or not having instant result. You need to know that overnight success doesn’t exist (except for a funny tweet — maybe — )
Excuses — It’s another cause of procrastination, saying you don’t have money (it seems like you have a computer, you can buy books, etc.), skills, time (that’s the worse thing I hear, you have time to watch TV but not for learning) or anything else such as network.
Let’s talk with yourself
Now the question is, how can you avoid this? Easy, learn.
Learn by reading — You can read books or articles. Many resources are available, for articles you can read here on Medium and I can tell you we learn a lot from others’ stories! Books too are interesting too, many advices you can’t think of before reading something, somewhere
Learn by playing — Yes, videogames is a way to learn, it helps for cooperation but can also expand your skills with specific games (there are games to learn to code for instance). You see, playing is a powerful way to learn
Learn by practicing — Working on true project is the best, project you love is even better. You’d love making music? Compose. You’d love drawing? Draw. There’s nothing better than making to progress!
Learn by failing — It’s the best way to learn, ask “why did I fail?”. Don’t fear of failing, everybody fails everyday and you can learn from it
Invest in your hobbies — Also called Learn by making. It’s all about designing, drawing, singing, playing games, music, etc. Hobbies are the best thing that can happen to you. Let me tell you this: for me, coding (by itself) isn’t cool anymore, so I decided to begin writing and do other things to keep learning!
What to learn, and where?
What to learn, you’ve understand that it’s your choice. The best to learn is what you dream for. Where? Search on the Internet, there are plenty of resources online. With an easy research I can find whatever I want to learn, so do you!
Either personal or professional, it’s all about learning.
Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people. — Tena Desae
