There are points in our careers that are down-times.  We have less to do or maybe even some time period that leaves us with the freedom to do what we choose.  When we hit such a time we can use the pause as a launching pad for new or better things.  These may be new goals or simply completing a task that has been on our plate far too long.

Take Time To Breath And Plan

The biggest value we get from using a pause as a launching pad is that we have time to think. We can plan out our steps, assess the required effort, and move forward with confidence in realistic goals. This time can also allow us to review what we have done good and bad in the past to achieve our goals. We can find things that feel through the cracks or catch up on tasks that we under-estimated.

The Mentor-Mastermind Group

This series comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes.  These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses.  The goals of each member vary.  However, this diversity makes for great discussions and a ton of educational value every time we meet.  We hope you enjoy viewing this series as much as we enjoy creating it.  As always, this may not be all new to you, but we hope it helps you be a better developer.  Drop us a line to find out when the next one is so you can join our group.
