I Took A Break
Writing is not an easy thing to do. What’s harder is revealing opinion. I needed a break.
In 2017, I started writing because teaching is important to me. It’s in my blood, literally. Principles, teachers, instructors, community leaders… They’re all in the family. The fact that I didn’t wind up becoming a teacher at first, was always weird to me. There are just so many opportunities in tech that I couldn’t resist. I don’t regret it at all.
Tech and Teaching
Why the break
Opinions. So many other opinions. And none of them mattered.
I had a million and one ideas. Most of them opinions. All of them were more important than anyone elses.
I realized that I needed to spend more time learning about others. What other people like. What they care about and are looking for. Where the knowledge gaps are. What gaps matter more. What gaps I can fill. And most importantly, what I can do to make the most impact.
I was getting down on myself for not writing for so long. I’m happy I stuck with my break though. Last year, at this time, I wrote a draft of an article about why Clojure. What’s more important to me now, is this. Why write?
