Mindsets for Success

Skip the backup plan?

The truth is Plan B will probably pull your attention from your Plan A.

What if you let go of needing a backup plan? What if you set sail and trust the winds will catch you?

Maybe life is so short that going 110% into your dreams is worth doing.

Give Value


Instead of, "what can I get from this situation?" think, "how can I give value in this situation?"



Quote of the Week

“The person that gives the value first has the leverage.”

— Gary Vaynerchuk


*Where Will You be in 1 Year?

We overestimate what we can do in 1 day, and underestimate what we can accomplish in 1 year. So as you kick off 2023 with big plans to change your life, be sure to pace yourself.

That’s what Springboard can do in 11 months for you, with their Foundations to Core program to launch into a web development career.

Plus, you’ll be guaranteed a job or your tuition will be refunded.

Just-In Case Learning vs. Just-In-Time Learning

In school you learned a bunch of stuff, just in case you'll need it later.

But you forgot most of it anyway, right after you finished the test!

What a waste of human energy, yeah?

That's known as Just-In-Case learning, and it doesn't help you in your career, because you don't have a real-world application of the knowledge.

A better way to approach growth and skill development is Just-In-Time learning.

This means saying, "I'm going to start a podcast, so now I'll go learn how Audacity works for podcast editing."

Or "I want to break into marketing, so I'll go start creating mock ads for a company to build my copywriting skills."

Or, "crap, my car died. Let me YouTube how to jumpstart a car."

When the problem is pressing, you'll have a reason to actually learn it.

How can you start to apply this in your life and career?
