What's one thing you wish you had known before you started your career in web development?

I'd love to collect some answers for a blog post people just starting out or feeling a little bit lost.
If you would like your twitter or anything linked to the advice add it after your comment. 🐦

I guess for me is to not get into all that java script framework nonsense and just learn the language it self, rest will follow.

I have one request.
Could you help me?
