The first six months were the toughest: we were spending endless hours doing online tutorials (no school, we figured the most efficient way to grab as much knowledge as possible was to go through the infinite library of online courses and articles). Since we were not “so young,” there were moments when we felt like we were wasting precious time. In the end it paid off, and we learned a valuable lesson: it doesn’t matter how much time you spent getting your degree or creating your professional figure. If you feel overwhelmed by the idea of learning something new, you have to rewire your brain, so that learning new things becomes, if not easy, natural. It’s not only about improving; it’s surviving in an ever-changing environment.
