  • a habit of creating learning exhaust
    • Write blogs and tutorials and cheatsheets.
    • Speak at meetups and conferences.
    • Ask and answer things on Stackoverflow or Reddit.
      • Avoid the walled gardens like Slack and Discord, they’re not public.
    • Make Youtube videos or Twitch streams.
    • Start a newsletter.
    • Draw cartoons (people loooove cartoons!)
  • Whatever your thing is, make the thing you wish you had found when you were learning.
  • Don’t judge your results by “claps” or retweets or stars or upvotes
  • Oh you think you’re done? Don’t stop there:
    • Enjoyed a coding video? Reach out to the speaker/instructor and thank them, and ask questions.
    • Make PR’s to libraries you use.
    • Make your own libraries no one will ever use.
    • Clone stuff you like, from scratch, to see how they work.
    • Teach workshops.
    • Go to conferences and summarize what you learned.
  • The subheading under this rule would be: Try your best to be right, but don’t worry when you’re wrong.
    • People think you suck? Good. You agree. Ask them to explain, in detail, why you suck
    • You want to just feel good or you want to be good?
      • Then go away and prove them wrong. Of course, if they get abusive block them.
  • At some point you’ll get some support behind you. People notice genuine learners. They’ll want to help you.
    • Don’t tell them, but they just became your mentors.
    • This is very important: Pick up what they put down
    • Because you learn in public. By teaching you, they teach many.
