This is a bit more of a rant than anything else:
I talk a lot about software development, entrepreneurship, creating stuff, and building personal momentum in my personal and professional life. I try to not be too prescriptive with my thoughts because… well, they are just my own and not very good and certainly not polished.
Consequently, I get really upset when other people prescribe too heavily very specific course(s) of action as it can often short-circuit the learning cycle and process necessary for true, long-term growth.
Don’t let anyone kill your curiosity – maximize your own momentum and remember why you started. Never forget.
