This is one of those really important topics. People often get stuck on finding a good idea. And simply because they haven't found their idea or passion, they foresake their goals entirely. Sound familiar? Postponing for this reason is the ultimate form of procrastination. It means death to progress. Change your mindset: Practice your idea muscle and explore your curiosities instead!
You need to get out there and do shit! But sometimes you just can't drag yourself out of bed. Or sometimes you just sit there and watch your Facebook Newsfeed 50 times per day. Sometimes you hit adversity, but what REALLY matters is...what are you going to do about it? Don't let the Facebook Newsfeed be the last thing you see flash before your eyes.
Yippee Ki-Yay! My favorite topic. But perhaps a bit broad...
This probably deserves its own website altogether! I KNOW! In fact there are probably millions of websites already dedicated to this. So let's try to keep this limited to the things I found extremely useful: Tools, lists and the best bloggers in the world.
I use WordPress for my webdesign and I am a big fan. I think it's very versatile. It is particularly well suited to people with little to no coding experience. But even experienced coders and large companies use WordPress. I haven't found anything yet that wasn't possible to create in WordPress. In addition, there is SO MUCH FREE STUFF on WordPress!
Publishing and/or Illustrating
My project Best Monster forced me to look into the world of publishing and illustration. I had no prior experience in this area and it can be very daunting at first. If you ever contemplated (self-)publishing or working with an illustrator for a project, have a browse around this section.
I am a rubbish coder. Seriously. That's why I use WordPress. But I like the idea of creating something out of nothing. There is this endless world of opportunities out there just at our fingertips. If only you could learn? Well, you CAN learn! I have picked up some useful links for you to explore here.
And that brings me to the topic of education. Do you want to become an expert in 19th century architecture? Or maybe you want to know everything there is to know about naval defense strategies? Or do you want to be the next Artificial Intelligence mastermind? Top notch education is not simply for the rich and famous anymore.
