I think lots of us feel like it’s a race against the clock - for success/money/achievement before a certain age. And it’s easy to get caught up in not having a perfect trajectory /or ‘doing things at the right time’. This book is all about the pressure for early achievement (SAT scores, the best colleges, top tech companies etc) - without any deviation from the ‘perfect’ path. The second half of the book (I haven’t got there yet) is about the power of getting on your own right path ‘late’, and the strengths that you get time to build as you take time to discover your way.
I needed to read this. I think a ton of you would love it too. 💙
FAQ: “Was it worth the efforts to get to where you are today?”
Long Answer: Every morning I wake up, without an alarm, at any time I want. I do an hour of yoga, stretching, and recovery/massage at home. I take a relaxing bath and spend a great deal of time grooming- like brushing my hair. Before leaving for work, I throw on comfy clothes, a hat, and a sweatshirt (and of course apply my red lipstick). I walk to work. I get in at whatever time I want. My team is a perfect fit for me and the work I’m doing is exactly what I aspired to do- purely backend software engineering. We even have a private suite which is convenient for babysitting dogs or laughing hysterically without disturbing non-teammates. I pet coworkers’ dogs every day. I eat incredible food prepared by chefs- 3 meals most workdays and unlimited snacks! I take breaks throughout the day to play video games in the arcade or to grab coffee with friends.
To sum it up, I’m living a happy, low stress life. I’m no longer bound by hard deadlines. I’m getting a full night’s sleep nearly every night and exercising every day. I’m working in NYC and living close enough to walk to work. I’m working for a company that I admire and on my favorite app- Maps. I’m living the life I dreamed of living.
Short Answer: Yes, it was worth it.

[DAY 73/365] #365dayscodingchallenge .
I know it was a very very late post but I was really unable to balance the time between college and home thus I decided to get used to with the schedule and then I will start posting.🤞
So I have initiated the project and started working on it.Writing C# script for the GameObject to make it move using the keyboard keys...I will finish my project on PC then I will move to VR as starting with VR will not help me to complete the project in time.
Till then ...
Do follow - @java._.trv._.13
And as always...
