    Notes on Changing Your Life

    "It’s hard to nail down exactly what it means to “have your sh^t together,” but you always know when you meet someone who does.

    These people are functional and competent, but never pretentious or elitist. They make their beds and do their jobs and always seem to be level-headed about all the nonsense the rest of us conflate into huge crises.

    No matter what your personal goals are, at the root of them all, you just want to have your sh^t together too. <snip>

    ...6. Minimize Drama
    Instead of being someone who creates drama and issues, be someone who problem solves and innovates with new ideas. Instead of creating more chaos around a disagreement or issue, create a solution.

    ....8. Be Clear About Who You Are
    For people to respect you, they first have to understand you, and that really begins with your language and approach to explaining yourself, both online and in person. In general, you should have a single sentence explanation that adequately sums up what you do professionally and then another that sums up what you’re interested in personally. If you can’t sum it up easily, you’re assuming your life is too complex and nuanced—but you’re achieving the opposite effect than you desire because you’ll just seem sort of lost.

    Note: I have issues with #8 "Be Clear About Who You Are" since some valuable topics cannot be described in 15 seconds.

    Do you have your "sh^t together" most of the time?​

    Who is ready to learn some "real skills"?

    The Right Way

    Last Updated: 2018-12-18

    The Basics

    PHP is a vast language that allows coders of all levels the ability to produce code not only quickly, but efficiently. However, while advancing through the language, we often forget the basics that we first learnt (or overlooked) in favor of short cuts and/or bad habits. To help combat this common issue, this section is aimed at reminding coders of the basic coding practices within PHP....

    Web Application Security
    It is very important for every PHP developer to learn the basics of web application security, which can be broken down into a handful of broad topics:

    1. Code-data separation.
      • When data is executed as code, you get SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting, Local/Remote File Inclusion, etc.
      • When code is printed as data, you get information leaks (source code disclosure or, in the case of C programs, enough information to bypass ASLR).
    2. Application logic.
      • Missing authentication or authorization controls.
      • Input validation.
      • ......
    Oops, too hard (?) should we just try to keep flipping domains instead? :)

    65 Quotes That Will Dare You to Do Great Things

    At some point in life we're all faced with a decision of whether to take a risk. Whether it's leaving a miserable job, moving to a different position that stretches you, starting your own business, or even taking on a tricky new assignment, greatness requires risk.

    Whether you succeed or fail, the act of taking a risk will stretch you and give you faith in yourself--and the confidence to do even more. Maybe we're meant to do things that scare us so we can build greatness in ourselves.

    Allow these amazing quotes to dare you:

    1. "Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." --Mark Twain

    2. "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." --Lao Tzu

    3. "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." --T. S. Eliot

    4. "Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at." --Unknown

    5. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I ... I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." --Robert Frost

    6. "Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have." --Oprah Winfrey

    7. "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." --Tony Robbins

    8. "Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it."-- Henry David Thoreau

    9. "If you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat! Just get on." --Sheryl Sandberg


    57. "When you play it too safe, you're taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we're given." --Barbara Sher

    58. "Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear." --George Addair

    59. "Screw it, Let's do it!" --Richard Branson

    60. "You can't have everything you want, but you can have the things that really matter to you." --Marissa Mayer

    61. "Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else's." --Billy Wilder

    62. "I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me. It's because of them I'm doing it myself." --Albert Einstein

    63. "Only those who play win. Only those who risk win. History favors risk-takers. Forgets the timid. Everything else is commentary." --Iveta Cherneva

    64. "The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." --Ayn Rand

    65. "Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible." --Cadet maxim

    When you take the path of timidity and fear, your destiny is to wonder, years later, what might have been. So go for it! The cost may be great but the reward may be bigger. Get inspired and take the chance you need today.

    Some great advice and some good reading material there.

    But after reading quite a lot and equipping oneself with knowledge there are chances that one might turn into an introvert (for good) because you won't be interested in normal bullsh*t that goes around LOL
