Hey friends 👋 At Virtual Coffee, we're excited to announce our latest monthly challenge: the Mid-Year Check-In. As we reach the halfway point of the year, it's the perfect time to pause, reflect on our goals, and refocus our energy. Whether you're a Virtual Coffee community member or part of the wider Dev community, we invite you to join us on this journey of self-discovery, growth, and connection.
We all know how time can fly by, especially when we're knee-deep in code and tackling projects. That's why we think it's important to take a step back and reflect on the progress we've made.
Did you achieve the milestones you set for yourself? What lessons have you learned along the way?
We believe in a growth mentality, which means we're always learning new things and open to listening to others; as part of this, our goals and aspirations may change as well. The Mid-Year Check-In challenge encourages us to reevaluate our goals and ensure they still align with our vision and values.
Is there something new you want to try or a change you need to make?
When the world around you seems to be moving so quickly, it can be hard to find clarity. Taking time to think about what truly matters to us, can help us to gain clarity and make decisions that align with who we want to be.
What are your core values, the things you're passionate about, where you find purpose?
Virtual Coffee isn't just a community; we learn and grow together. We support each other. We lift each other up when we're down, and cheer each other on when we share successes. During the Mid-Year Check-In challenge, we'd love to extend this camaraderie to the wider Dev community.
We invite anyone to participate, share your reflections, and provide encouragement and support to your fellow developers.
Getting involved is as easy as grabbing your favorite cup of coffee (or tea!) and joining us here. Here's how you can participate:
- Follow our Virtual Coffee org on Dev and introduce yourself in this thread.
- Look for the Mid-Year Check-In challenge posts and engage in discussions.
- Share your reflections, updated goals, and insights with the community.
- Connect with others and find an accountability partner to support each other.
- Celebrate your progress and encourage others by participating in the progress celebration thread.
- If you want to, share your progress and tag us (@VirtualCoffeeIO) on Twitter.
Whether you're a Virtual Coffee regular or part of the Dev community, we'd love to have you participate in this challenge and support each other. Let's navigate the second half of the year together, sharing our experiences, supporting one another, and embracing personal and professional development.
