Boundaries are wonderful things
We are more likely to respect boundaries put upon us by others than those we impose on ourselves. That is assuming we put any in place to begin with. Just telling ourselves that we will know when enough is enough is not a good way to hold ourselves accountable.
Not only are boundaries a good way to measure things like project limits but they also teach you a useful skill that you can carry through every aspect of your professional career.

This week I took part in a hackathon, I came away with some thoughts that I decided to share on the experience and how I feel it benefited my creativity to compromise down to a minimal shippable product.
This week it is a mini challenge. I want you to see how well you know something, you may think that's easy. Try teaching it to someone, it does not have to be anything massive, just try to convey your knowledge in a way that helps someone else.
We all have those moments that we think we took on more than we can handle. That realization that we just do not know how to solve the problem and want to give up. DON'T! That is the moment of our greatest achievement.
