Try playing keepy uppies with your projects:
- Do something every day, however small, to move them on and keep them alive
- Find friends for the project – people doing similar work, people interested in what you’re working on – and maintain a conversation about what you’re learning
- Keep half of your free moments empty – moments when you’d pick up your phone, snatch five minutes reading a blog or book or watch a video – and think about your project, keeping your head in the game
- When you learn something new, take the time to think about (or even better, articulate clearly and write down) how it might apply to your project
The ball’s in your court – keep it in the air.
