Recently a friend started working on a WordPress plugin. The plugin was scratching an itch, counting the words in a collection of posts and rendering the count in a widget, as an incentive to post regularly. In the process of building the plugin she tweeted quite a bit, about successes, struggles, and frustrations. At one point I sent her some encouragement:
She was right, I hadn’t seen her code. I’d never seen any of her code. At that point I didn’t know if she could code at all. But I knew she was doing awesome. How?
I could tell from her tweets that she was struggling with things, doing research, overcoming those things, and moving on. Anyone who can complete that process is essentially unstoppable as a developer. That process also works in any other walk of life.
Do you have what it takes to be a WordPress developer? Or any kind of developer? Or anything else in life? If you can confront your struggles head on, find a solution, and move on, you will be unstoppable.
