    #19 Inbox zero is a trap

    If your goal is to get to inbox zero or get everything off your to-do list, you’re in a trap.

    #18 What are you learning now?

    Before you know, weeks or months have passed and you haven’t learned anything new. And it’s a shame.

    #17 Getting started

    Take some new piece of tech, a platform, product, framework, whatever. Try doing something with it. Unless it's trivial, which more than often is not the case, you will get stuck.

    #16 People don't care about your stuff

    Well, maybe not as much as they don’t care as they don't live it. They have their own lives, jobs, and concerns, and typically, whatever it is that you want from them is not amongst their priorities.

    #15 I'll fix it later

    You're in a rush, the code should’ve been shipped already or maybe it’s just a proof of concept that will be thrown out anyway. You'll fix it later

    #14 Get out of your bubble

    Whatever you’re building is hard to use. It’s not for you of course, because you’ve been working with it since forever, but it is for everyone else. Want proof?

    #13 Automated builds are a must

    No matter when you worked with the particular project the last time, deploy with confidence, every single time. Avoid stress and save time.

    #11 The price of a feature

    When building a physical product, you're limited by its design, material, weight. Unfortunately, this isn't the case when building software.

    #6 Build for Microsoft Teams

    Did you know that you can use SharePoint Framework to also build applications for Microsoft Teams?

    #5 Good idea just not now

    Often we look at ideas as absolutes. Something we either do or don’t do, right now. We rarely dare to say something is good but not now. Why?

    #4 Build it and they will come

    If you think that if you just build it people will come, I’m sorry to break it for you: you’re wrong.

    #2 What is it for

    Don’t tell me what something is. I see it’s a table or a chart. Instead, tell me what it’s for. What problem is it solving? What good is it for me? What’s the benefit? Why should I care?
