Following up on the “keep learning” theme I wrote about a little while ago, I also encourage you to explore any personal interests you have, in technology or otherwise. In my case, over the last few weeks I’ve been working on my Android football game, and while it currently pisses me off more than it makes me happy, I can see its potential. And beyond that, I’ve learned a lot more about Android than I would have learned any other way. I don’t know where this will ever lead, but I do enjoy the game, and it has laid a foundation for the future changes I know I want to make to it.
P.S. A strong running game and third-down efficiency are also important. ;)
