Remember to Experiment

This is mostly a note to myself that will probably come back and reference/update from time to time. 

Remember to Experiment

Do not forget this. Experimenting is how you find and create new things. Attempt new things, look for interesting problems. Plus its just plain old fun. Do the wacky stuff.

Think like a beginner

Take a fresh look at problems, don’t go through your mental catalog of past problems. Each problem is unique and it has its own set of unique solutions. You might surprise yourself, with what you come up with.

Thought catalog

Remember to jot down recurring thoughts, you are likely not the only one who has them, there might be just something to them.

Take your time

This isn’t a sprint it’s a marathon, slow down silly rabbit.

Independent Study

Just learn for the fun of it, you never know what might come in handy. Derive your own conclusions, share with others. 

Be positive.

Affects both you and others.
