A wonderful adventure of starting a side project
Keep on mind that is an opinion based on my experience and could be completely different for you! As a spoiler, I am very proud and glad to have decided to do my own projects.
Let’s start with a realistic point of view.. Develop side projects is not easy, because you need to invest a lot of time and/or effort and you will not get FAME or FORTUNE easily from them.
Then, Why did I start these projects?
It is common to get some self-criticism while planing a new side project.
- The project will not be used or it will not be good enough
- My project is too complex to be build with my current skills
- I don’t have enough time for build a product from scratch.
- Life is overwhelming, sometimes
These were a bunch of excuses because I was scared to fail. As far as you’re from you comfort zone higher is the probability to fail and higher is the fear.
I detected that was my case, and this motivated me to start a project in a field, that was completely new to me.
Knowledge is really valuable and every human has a different perspective from the reality.
Why is great to build your project?
- ✨ Fulfillment
- ✨ Pride
- ✨ Gratification
- ✨ up skills and re skills
- ✨ Learn and accept failure
The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.
