Man!

Been doing this Keto diet and today was a cheat day. So, had a huge stack of pancakes for breakfast… and my body is reeling. You know when you’re laying down and your arms feel like they weigh 100o lbs?

Yeah, that.

Anyway, got me thinking about this tweet:

I’d retweeted it and said:

Used it again this morning to get this email out.

I thought, “Okay, just figure what you wanna talk about”.

Just do that one little step.

Now, here I am typing this whole thing out.

Same with web dev projects.

Don’t think about everything you have to do. Just look at the list of things left to do and find one you think you can get done in 5 minutes and do that. By the time you get done with it, you’ll “strangely” want to keep going.

Before you know it…

It’s three hours later and you’ve got half your list done.

And, it’s works over and over and over.

Almost 10 years now for me.

Anyhoo, use that as you will.

Of course, if learning how to code and how to freelance is one of the things on your list, I can give you an assist. You can get access to my entire curriculum of web development and freelancing courses for nothing over on SkillShare.

So, you don’t have to waste time figuring out WHAT learn.

It’s all there.

Anyway, details on all that are here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/johnmorris

Later,

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
