- Wednesday, 08/09/23 ** 17:34 I can't afford to 'choose not to' write application code every day. I can't afford to choose not to take photos every day. The only real way to get better at something is to do it every day.
I see this in my software development skills and in my photos. I see this at the gym. I see this when cooking.
Be more and more deliberate about how your day is spent. If you want to learn something, reserve thirty minutes in a day for it. Consider the pomodoro technique, or something like it.
I'm not convinced that it works well for software development - thirty minutes might not be enough time to get the whole problem into your head, let alone start typing - but this is so difficult to guage when starting something new. When adding a hobby, start with one pomodoro - that should be enough.
