Humans are driven to resolve cognitive dissonance as efficiently as possible. We pay little regard to whether our solutions are accurate or correct, but rather we only seek harmony in our minds. Unfortunately this can mean reinforcing unhealthy thought patterns and incorrect beliefs. However, cognitive dissonance can be turned around and used towards positive gains.✨ Sponsor: Remote Works (Podcast)The way we work has changed forever.

How does learning happen? In one fell swoop - linear? Or is there another path that learning takes? We pass judgment on ourselves and others, designing our attempts in ways that are suboptimal based on the assumption of linearity.Almost nothing is truly linear.✨ Sponsor: SquarePayment acceptance can be one of the most painful parts of building a web app for a business.

We grow up believing there is a continuum from serious to fun, and that as you get older, you traverse towards the serious side.The truth is, the more serious you are, the more fun you need to be able to incorporate in your audacious goals. Throw out the continuum - it's a fallacy.✨ Sponsor: SquarePayment acceptance can be one of the most painful parts of building a web app for a business.

Your obstacles are not a test of pride or an opportunity to prove yourself. They are in your way. There's more than one way to deal with this - so why do we so often choose a difficult path? Perhaps it is pride, or maybe we like testing our fortitude. But if you care less about proving yourself and more about accomplishing your goals, you need to look at obstacles with more nuance. In this episode, we talk about making your obstacles irrelevant.✨ Sponsor: Remote Works (Podcast)The way we work has changed forever.

Uniqueness is not inherently valuable. Our heuristic brains interpret uniqueness as worth paying attention to and possibly valuable, and for that reason we tend to over-index on protecting that value by resisting things that make us less unique. But this can lead to inefficiency or an inaccurate picture of what actually generates value for your venture.✨ Sponsor: VoyageVoyage is a tool built by and for developers.

Variables were the one thing I would get hung up on when I started out. I still get hung up at times deciding what a variable name should be called when thinking about its long term viability.

think of the writing process, think of the code you write as a first draft. you never submit a first draft. you many times completely rewrite a first draft. in programming you tend to solve a problem. thats the first draft.
