"That’s how learning should be, and is how I still teach myself new skills today. I pick a project I want to see on the web and just start hacking away. I always like to pick an unfamiliar tool or technique which scares me a little bit, just to see if I can do it. You may struggle along the way as I always do, but maybe without knowing it, you’re part of the most collaborative and helpful network of people just by being active in our industry. There’ll always be someone willing to help.
If you feel excited and motivated about learning by creating something new, you’re doing it right. And then by sharing your experiences–however frustrating they may be–others will vicariously feed off that excitement and ultimately benefit."
"Resist the temptation to get a job. Instead, play. Find something you enjoy doing. Do it. Over and over again. You will become good at it for two reasons: you like it, and you do it often. Soon, that will have value in itself."
I’ve created another tumblr (the last, I promise), this time to share music, trips and more random thoughts. It will be in Portuguese though. Hope you enjoy it =)
