People who know me won’t be surprised by the fact that I love learning!

I made learning part of my daily activities. I did an experiment this November and enrolled in intensive Czech lessons for 2 weeks. It is a difficult journey to master that language, but I still don’t give up.

From a technical point of view, after mastering Java (already over 12 years of professional experience) and working with many other software languages, I am also investing time learning Node.js and mastering Java script framework Vue.js.

How you can make learning a part of your daily rituals?

The easiest way is to schedule it on your calendar. If you don’t have a system to book time for a specific thing to do and don’t be disturbed by anything else, you are missing a lot.

My recommendation is to book at least 30 minutes per day for learning and 30 minutes per day for workout and you will see a drastic improvements overtime.
