I’ve been perusing the internet looking for an idea that I could steal. Something worth sharing with you here today on my blog. Something I could remix into my own thing.
Have you ever talked to someone who’s not listening to you?
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.

What do top developers do to ensure they’re hired?
