My brain is wired to write code. That fact becomes apparent every time I start working on some sort of coding project. When I'm working on some project everything else fades to the background and time slips by. Yesterday I had intentions of getting some marketing work done, but once I started coding on Cast Off, nothing else happened.

As I work on different projects, I'm figuring out that I need to do things that my brain is wired to do. Earlier this year I started making videos for youtube where I teach programming concepts. Planning the videos out ahead of time, and editing them after are things that I'm really not wired to do, so that project is abandoned.

I did a Facebook live video this morning, and that is much better. There's no editing, and there doesn't need to be much planning. I did know what I was going to talk about, but it's more of an off the cuff platform.

The takeaway is find the things that you are wired to do, and that you enjoy doing, and figure out a way to get paid to do those things.
