I’m like a kid in a candy shop. Especially when it comes to playing with technologies and wanting to get to the bottom of how the work. It comes at no surprise then that I find myself having my toes and fingers in many pies.
On the one hand, it’s great because I feel I get a wider understanding of our industry, always have something new to play with and hey – it’s kind of my job.
However on the other, the perfectionist within me also means that a lot of what I start never gets finished. Side projects which just need a few tweaks, articles which I am juggling making amends to and more reading materials that I can shake a stick at.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this rings true with a lot of other people.
For me, it can sometimes lead to a feeling of failure. A lack of accomplishment. How can I be proud of something that I haven’t even finished?
And these were the thoughts that were running through my head earlier in the week and I have decided that I need to address it.
I’m going to make more of an effort finishing something before moving onto the next idea. Shipping more quickly (without shipping shit).
This article mainly being me committing to this ideology. Watch this space.
