Day 1: The Ship is Setting Sail

Mentioned this in the earlier tweets, but I recently signed up for Dickie Bush & Nicolas Cole’s cohort-based course, Ship 30 for 30. And finally today is the day, it’s time to start shipping!

In deciding to join, there were So Many Reasons. Since we’re supposed to show restraint (~250-words) here are just a few of them:

Make a habit out of shipping

Getting into the habit of writing consistently is hard. Even when I manage to get the writing done, there’s always a resistance to pushing publish. The #1 goal for this cohort is to replace those problems with a brand new habit.

Build a library of content

I spend a lot of time rehashing and writing up bits and pieces of my (opinionated) development philosophy. Creating a library of content to point at will help me in many ways.

And ideally I can do that while also….

Finding a community of like-minded peers

Selfishly, more people and perspectives to engage with is a great way to level-up my own thinking. Unselfishly, it creates an opportunity to help many more people than I do during my day job.

Over the next 30 days, I plan on writing about a slew of (mostly) development topics, with the intent of finding what is both enjoyable to write, and helpful to others.

Join me on this adventure—and let me know if you have any questions along the way!

I’m excited to start sharing with everyone!
