This article is about something I already have in my mind for quite some time. It’s about the importance of education. Some people think, education is unnecessary, the only important thing is practice. But in my opinion you need education and the theoretical background for getting better practice. — jlelse (@jlelse) 11. April 2018 A few days ago, I tweeted this sentences. I think education and the theoretical background are also very important but often neglected.
I recently joined an event in my hometown, which was focused on new technologies. I had the opportunity to give a small talk and I took it. First I was a bit scared, “What will the people think?”, “Do I have enough knowledge to give a talk?”, “I can’t speak good enough…”. But I also thought “You have to leave your comfort zone to grow.” And that’s what I did. I left my comfort zone to grow.
I always didn’t like to hear my own voice, because I thought it sounds strange. So always procrastinated starting a podcast. I finally overcame my fear. And it actually feels good. I always had that idea in my mind of starting a podcast, I also started recording one once, but I screw it. I didn’t like my voice. But this time, I just tried it again and after hearing the voice some time, I just thought, why care about other’s opinions, just do it.
I like podcasts. I really like podcasts. But it’s only a few days since I rediscovered how much I like them. Like a week ago my friend Zan started his own podcast (together with another guy). Because I follow his work I also listened to the first two episodes. Their podcast is called “Pocket Friend” and they talk about all things mobile. A topic I’m really interested in. Also one of my favorite YouTubers recently started podcasting.
I don’t really like when my situation changes a lot and so I immediately started panicking when something happened last week. I feared about the consequences and all the things I have to due because of this. (I won’t tell you the problem, sorry.) But since then a few days passed and I actually realize, that things aren’t as worse as imagined. Sure, things are still not fun, but less complicated than I initially thought.
