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:

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.
