comment Making good use of a sabbatical
@AsheeshR well, from the takeaways listed above, 1) was a success to stay somewhat focused, 2) was not so useful since I ended up taking whatever the time needed was and 3) was hard to do with the kids so all in all I didn't get a lot done but at least I worked on things I wanted to work on in the first place.

+1 for TDD. Spend some time setting up tests for your project (it's fun to set up). Then think of a minimum feature/function that you need to have. Write a minimal test that exercises it. Run it, it should fail. Write the code that implements it. Run the test and fix the code until it succeeds. Repeat. TDD really helps keeping focus on your code goals.

You're doing it wrong. Just code in JavaScript with NodeJS server-side and and then you don't have to learn any other languages, ever ;-)

to 7: don't eat sugar. If you do this, eat a smallish cold potato instead. Think of it as sleep medicine instead of something yummy for your tummy.

Also check out blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2013/08/… which explains how it works and claims a 7-12 day reversal period.

comment Why am I not making money and success even If I am organised, motivated and hard-working?
@Gruber thanks for mentioning the synopsis! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_4-Hour_Workweek I always wanted to read the book but didn't get around to it.

Hi @Juan that's a summary of the ted talk I linked above :-) I agree it was very inspiring!
