Development and Productivity

Introductory course to me. ICM1101

I believe in development.

Throughout my life, the most consistent phrase I heard was “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” That can be applied to many situations (i.e. education, spirituality, literally, etc.), and can cause every person to look within themselves and determine whether or not they’re stagnant in life. This is something I’ve always struggled with. It’s hard to be disciplined when you’re raised on computer screens and iPhones — which is ironic because we live in an age where we have a countless resources for being productive and disciplined.

No matter the situation, I choose to apply this phrase through all facets of my life to place a measure of accountability around me. At 23 years old, it’s very easy to think that I have all the time in the world, but that’s the reality.

The idea of productivity — or being productive — is that everything you(‘re) do(ing) should hold some weight to it. Everything you do should count for something and not just be meaningless. That’s the purpose of this blog. To be productive and create ideas for development, whether it be for tech, coding, or just life in general.

this is me. hi.

This is me on your left. I took that photo against an eggshell white drywall and put it on my LinkedIn. The text message I got following that upload was from my Dad telling me it didn’t look very professional. That was a year ago. It’s still up there. And on here. Take that, Dad.

I live in Orlando, FL. Yes, that means I go to theme parks a lot — probably too much — and I do complain about the traffic as much as someone from NY, but I love my town. The tech scene here is amazing and there’s untapped potential for programmers. On top of that, there’s always something to do. Always.

I live here with my hot fiance, Lauren (You can see her here. She’s mine.). We’re getting married in May 2017. While she’s finishing up at UCF, I do full-time programming focusing on ruby on rails development.

This medium page is designed to hold myself accountable for being productive and continuously develop and put out content. I’ll post stuff about web development, life, fitness, and general tech.

K, thanks,

bye.
