Engineers love to start side projects and never finish them. This leads to burnout. Why not build fun things instead? How about a tool to develop virtual cross stitches!
Over the years I have been on both sides of the interview process. I have learned a wealth of experience, here is my advice.
One Day I decided to learn how to make circuit boards. Several months later, my first PCB arried in the mail. This is how I got there.
In 2016, I set out to launch my first product on Kickstarter. I failed, did some research, tried again and succeeded. These are my observations.
I marked my service in the Peace Corps as a failure. After much reflection on that summarization, I realized there is more than one way to look at failure.
I have gotten very good at managing my time over the years, here is how I do it.
I have had a long journey of learning many subjects. Along the way, I aspired to one day give back and share my experiences and knowledge. However, I wasn’t the best teacher. I decided to take my desire to learn and apply it to improving myself as a teacher. I have learned a lot along the way and I'll share those lessons learned here.
In the pursuit of learning about electronics and other subjects, I have developed a set of skills that have enabled me to learn new subjects more quickly and thoroughly and with less frustration. For me, learning new subjects is now much more rewarding and enjoyable than it used to be and I hope that I can share some of what I have learned with you.
