COVID-19 can’t stop you from becoming a web developer

Resources for the End of the World

I hope you’re OK, and I hope you can find the strength to keep pushing forward. This virus may change a lot of things, but it ultimately doesn’t change what you need to do to see the transformation you want.

Here are the resources I mentioned in the video to help you keep going:

  • 💌 First things first. Here’s my email address: Email me if there’s any way I can help you, if you need to get something off your chest, or just if you need a friend. We’re in this together.
  • If you’re not sure what to do right now, I recommend these three things for starters:
    1. 📗 Check out my video on The Obstacle Is the Way. It’s a gentle introduction to stoicism that’s never been more relevant than it is right now.
    2. 🧘‍♂🧘‍♀ Try meditation. It can teach you to disconnect from your brain when it’s filling you full of anxiety and doubt. Waking Up is a great guided meditation system that’s a little pricey, but it has worked better for me than any of the alternatives. Find whatever works best for you and run with it. (P.S. I don’t actually meditate in the lotus position like in the emoji, but who knows? Maybe you will. 😉)
    3. 💻 Code. 🔄 Every. 🌞 Day. Don’t take a break. Don’t wait for the economy to straighten out. Don’t wait for the virus to blow over. Just keep practicing.

Feel free to reach out using the email above, in the YouTube comments, or on Twitter.
