Failure

August 15, 2019

If you’ve been reading along, you should’ve noted that a month ago I wrote about doing something new, starting a long-lasting project…

So that was a fucking lie.

Failure is something I’ve learned to deal with, if you want to actually achieve something someday, you will fail a lot, that’s the mentality I try to take with me. Whenever I drop something, I get a feeling of despair, of having wasted time with something I wasn’t able to keep going, but then I stop, and think.

Thinking about everything I learned with the project, the stuff I had to research, the joy of doing something new, and the drive I had at the beginning. That time was not actually wasted, life is made of failures, if you never fail, that means you never tried (or you’re very lucky ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).

My latest endeavour was actually cut short for a lack of interest by my part on the subject, I chose something too close to my comfort zone, and tried to develop a product that I did not find all that useful. If the creator of the project can’t find use to its own creation, it probably means it sucked. So, let’s kick the ball ahead (loosely translating a brazilian idiom and making no sense), and try again. This time, with something I enjoy, would use, and is challenging enough to not bore me to death while developing it. To be honest, odds are I’ll drop it, or it’ll fail after I release it, but I’m looking forward to it, and all the new things I’ll learn in the process.
