The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, written by Stephen Covey, listed “BE PROACTIVE” as the first habit of all. Being Proactive is firstly about your use of resources, effectively utilising resources to generate actions. With a single purpose: to become more productive each and everyday.

In modern life, each person has 3 main resources, the person who convert resources to actions will achieve successes:

  • Time: there is a limited amount of time in your life, anything is based on time.
  • Energy: more energy gives you more time per day, also the quality of your time also depends on your energy level.
  • Mind + Memory: this is the machine that you use to do anything, the better machine you have, the more you can do.

To become a great developer, one needs great love and a great sacrifice – putting in great amount of time and thoughts. The greater is one’s love and amount of effort, the greater developer one becomes.

Some freelance iOS developers in Vietnam are earning 150$ per day, just making apps on the AppStore. Why I can spend time learning my craft, I believe it’s better to spend my time on my own apps. Lets put this as a new goal from today. Our own business.
