Is there anything more frustrating than trying to accomplish a big goal and not being able to get others to buy into your vision?
As a software developer, it might seem strange to dedicate time to improving sales skills. Recently, though, I’ve noticed that the most successful software developers are great at selling at least one thing. They’re great at selling ideas.
My experiment to publish a blog every day for a month is officially over today.
As my last post here are 10 things I’ve learned from Daily December.
10 books I loved this year, in no particular order:
I’m going to be honest with you. I haven’t worked from a coffee shop in a long time.
When I do it’s always a fun experience. Kind of a like a little “field trip” from work!

Ever wondered how you can you spread your ideas through social media? Gary Vaynerchuk answers this question and many more in his book Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook.
This is another edition to my one page book summaries that I’ve started recently.
This book is super tactical. The major platforms that this book talks about have changed. Yet the strategic ideas inside are timeless.
Here are ten times strategies from Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World.
Anyone else struggling with committing to code every day? There’s no time for anything. At least that’s how it feels, doesn’t it?
I’ve recently been implementing an X-Card strategy for writing.
The basic idea is that I try to write a specific number of words each day for seven weeks. Every day that I do, I write an X down on a notecard that I’ve created. Eventually, I’ll build a chain of X’s that will help keep me motivated to continue.
As a Software Developer, I would like to translate this strategy over to programming, which has been difficult for me to do in the past. I’ve been making excuses about how building a habit of daily coding is different from building a daily habit of writing.
