I really like the idea of 1% improvement. When you gradually tweak your skills and becoming better. For me the tipping point was wathching vlogs. Then I started to pick up some cool new habits here and there.
I do remember a video from @mpj
where he was coding an offline Pomodoro Button. That hit me :)
I've recently shared my experice on dev.to:
How Failing With Pomodoro Technique Made Me 2x Better Programmer
Also I do believe into becoming 10x programmer. But where «x» is referred to yourself years ago.
And. Speaking for myself. What was NOT healthy for me — was comparing myself to «10x developers» (from a marketing point of view).
It made me worry and put some invisible pressure on me.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
