re: What good habits are you trying to adopt? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

For me:

  1. Read before go to bed.

  2. Study at least 1 hour by day.

  3. Write one article on my blog --- weekly.

  4. Keep updated my personal trello.

 

It seems like we both got the memo for this agenda at the same time. Just add:

  1. Pushing relevant code commits everyday.
  2. Spending less time chatting and making quick phone calls instead.
  3. Replying to emails immediately to prevent pile up
 

Pushing relevant code commits everyday.

This is really hard, I tried it and I failed. I think that I couldn't fit that with my schedule. Good luck :D

Spending less time chatting and making quick phone calls instead.

Also use voice notes, if the people in the other end are busy and their can't pick up.

Replying to emails immediately to prevent pile up

Foruntunately I receive more span that serious things (Honestly I don't know whether it's good or not)

So far, for me I have been consistent with this because on the side I find small projects that require minor fixes and make contributions to. Also I have a full side project that have features yet to be implemented that I can also push code to. Then there's the alternative of following along with expanded code tutorials, create my own own repo and commit my own code to my repo.

Voice notes definitely work. The goal here being to cut to the chase ASAP.

Well, simply reply to the "serious mails" only! Spam is called so, just because.

I'd like to know what good habits you are developing too.

That's a good idea, I'll use it maybe starting from a small project and I'll add new features.

As a developer I don't have a lot good habits, but I can mention, Use an Ide to write code besides use an linter to write code more cleaner, Memorize shortcuts (You can save time, instead of using the mouse), apply "Single Responsibility Principle", And the last one but not least every piece of code that I use from internet I try to see if this is the best aproach or if I can optimize it.

That's not too much I think and sometimes I feel I'm not a great developer, but I'm improving every day. :D

 

Wow, that's a very ambitious habit plan. After reading that you are a father of 2, studying 1 hour a day sounds even more impressive. How do you manage to take that time?

 

Yeah, it's an ambitious habit plan but nothing is easy when you are adapting to.

About managing my schedule is not hard for me (seriously), because of the 1-hour studying every day is at night from Monday to Friday, and weekends pretty early. During workdays I try to start to study at 8:30 PM - 9:00 PM this is after I share 3 hours with my family, some days I play chess 25 minutes trying to do something different to disconnect (I'm sorry, I like playing chess although I'm a terrible player). One thing that is helpful is that my current job is 15 minutes walking from home then I don't spend a lot of time going/coming back home.

One trick that I'm using is the reminders, for instance, I have one alarm from Monday to Friday at 9 pm that recalls me to study, is very useful when I'm distracted.

Another thing that is important to mention is that every week I review whether my actual schedule works or not, so I don't have for now a final version of it.

The others taks that I put in my main comment but read before go to bed, I'm doing in my job. I hope explained well, as you see it's not rocket science. Thanks a lot for your time reading :D
