Nobody is perfect but that should not be a reason not to execute excellence.
If you’re not satisfied with your current performance as a software developer, you still have all the time in the world to improve. Being an effective programmer means solving real-world problems in a cost-efficient, simple, and clean manner. Of course, there will always be people who will be better than us. Nevertheless, your goal is not to be above all else because someone will always be better than the other. Instead, your focus should revolve around how much you love what you do.
Now’s your chance to be the best developer you can be. Here’s how.
Look for the Right Environment
No matter what each person’s work style is, the working environment will always play a big role in one’s productivity. Whether you’re extroverted, or introverted, or both – as a human, you need privacy. Doing your work in an overly open environment with too much noise pollution or traffic will surely distract you. Yes, you may often collaborate with your team, but a little sense of privacy is also essential to your mental health. One thing to note is that your workplace should promote a sense of relaxation, not a pressuring one. Make sure you work in an environment where you can focus well. Aside from the physical location of your work space, see to it that you also work with the right team wherein you can grow both in career and in your personal life.
Leave Work at Work
If you signed a contract with your employer to do 8 hours of work, make sure you only do 8 hours of work. As opposed to the usual corporate setting, you should not keep on thinking about work when you’re already out of the office. It is your responsibility to be an effective employee and it is also your responsibility to take care of your well-being and live a wonderful life. Burning out yourself would not make you effective. Instead, it will make you feel lethargic and unmotivated for the next day. Learn to use your energy accordingly and don’t spend it in one place such as the office.
Invest in Paid Tutorials
There is a plethora of free tutorials online but most of the time, those are the tutorials that are suited for beginners. If you’ve been a programmer for quite sometime now, it’s time you invest in paid learning like books or online subscriptions. Some even say that investing in education is better than investing in stocks. Education, when applied in the real world, will bring you even more stable money cash flow in the long run. Do not regret paying for that video training class, you need it more than you know.
Keep in mind that in order to become an effective programmer, you need to make improvement a habit and not just a one-time destination.
