"What hobbies do you have that have improved your skills as a developer?"

Jiu Jitsu, music, and working out have been my vices. It helps me really think through things and think about other ways to accomplish a task. When something doesn't work one way, I really sit and think about how I can accomplish this using a different approach.

"It's really easy to get caught up in seeing the cool things others are doing on Twitter and get discouraged thinking you may never get to that level"

I can't hear that enough. I see everyone with these dope tutorials and crazy in depth discussions and I'm just like ummm... ok so I suck. But you're so right, this is our own individual journey and we just really need to focus on where we are and what we need to do to get to the next checkpoint.

Thanks so much for sharing!
