It's ok to be unproductive

⭐️ 👀 2023 WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP starting in days! Join the waiting list to reserve your spot in my 10-weeks cohort course and learn the fundamentals, HTML, CSS, JS, Tailwind, React, Next.js and much much more! 👀 ⭐️

I watch a lot of YouTube and I used to watch many videos on productivity, but now I skip them all. Most of them are fake.

Those people that keep doing productivity videos do that because they are a “productivity channel” and the algorithm tells them to make more productivity videos because a lot of the people watching their channel watch productivity videos.

I’m also a Twitter addict and every time I go on Twitter I see people having great success stories with their business, launching new stuff, etc etc.

I might see a great course launch and I think I could have done one similar course.

Sometimes I feel a bit of pressure to ship great work. Work I’m proud of.

Not that I haven’t done anything yet.. I mean, in the past 3 years I wrote 14 free books, I write one blog post per day, I made 15+ premium high quality programming courses.

But despite that, I still have the desire to do.

But sometimes I also have the desire to be 100% unproductive. You don’t need to be productive all the time.

Sometimes it’s ok to give us permission to take time off and do nothing useful.

Even though it might hurt our own perception of being “productive people”.

I like those writers that seem to be doing nothing for a few years, then show up with a great book.

Perhaps that’s the model I’m looking forward.

One more thing! ⚠️ ✋

At the end of January I will organize the Web Development Bootcamp.

It's a 10-weeks long cohort online course where I will guide you to becoming a Web Developer.

It's not "just a course". It's a big event I organize once a year.

We'll start from zero, learn the fundamentals of Web Development, HTML CSS, JavaScript, Tailwind, Git, using the command line, VS Code, GitHub, Node.js, we'll then learn React, JSX, how to use PostgreSQL, Astro, Next.js, Prisma, deploying on Netlify/DigitalOcean/Fly/Vercel and much more! 

At the end of the first 10 weeks you'll know how to create web sites and web applications and I'll unlock you the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp: you will get access to a large number of projects exclusive to the Bootcamp graduates, so you can follow my instructions to build things like private areas with authentication, clones of popular sites like Twitter YouTube Reddit, create e-commerce sites, and much much more.

Because once you got the fundamentals, you only learn by working on real, exciting projects.
