Good thing we
celebrated early on Tuesday.
It was the third day of
crippling pain and I knew I wasn’t gonna get any writing done. So I said, c’mon
girl, get your clothes on I’m taking you out.
We had a lovely romantic
dinner then headed to the Marina for dessert. To cap off the night, we thought
we’d go for a “cruise” to the hospital.
Ok, ok…it was less of
a “cruise” and more of a “race”.
At Yaghi Castle, no
outing is complete without a trip to the emergency room.
The pain felt like I was
getting raped in the head.
The doctor pricked me in
the arse with a needle and massaged it painfully, graphed my heart, drew blood
from my finger, measured my blood-sugar, then sent me home with pain killers.
Not that it did any
Next day, the headache
was back and it felt like a gorilla was skipping rope on my brain.
This is how I’ve spent
the past few weeks, between back-pain to head-pain to bed.
And you know what’s odd?
Writing so much as an
Email, while sporting a headache is impossible. You couldn’t even muster up the
creative juices to write if you recovered from a headache EARLIER in the day;
let alone while still in the agony of a headache’s hell.
Trust me, I’ve tried.
There’s got to be at
least 20 drafts on my desktop of one or two sentence email openings that will
never see the light of day.
Hard as it is to write
on such days, I tend to always be able to program and do technical stuff.
Which is why I’ve been
able to create a bunch of mobile apps recently, in case you’re wondering where I
got the time.
And I think this is
Regular “everyday” programmers
aren’t as smart or as skilled as you might think them to be. And they’re super-lazy
but they’re good at making their job SEEM complicated and tough.
Most of the time, they
don’t do any consistent work. You know the kind, where you have to sit at the
computer and clickity, click, typedy-type.
Around 75% of their time
they spend searching online for someone else who’s done what they want to do. And
then they copy it with a few changes to adapt it for their needs.
About 20% of the time
is spent testing their program and checking it works as expected (aka
And only about 5% of
the time is spent doing ACTUAL original coding…if that.
So if you’ve been
contemplating my “90 Minute App” webinar but you’re afraid it’s gonna be too
hard…all you need to do is ask yourself:
“Am I a good Googler?” if yes, then you’re
75% of the way there.
“Am I good at running and using apps on my
phone?” if yes, then that’s 20%.
So there’s 95% of the
skills you already have.
The last 5%, leave
that to me.
Here’s where to learn
more about building your own Mobile App in 90 Minutes:
programmer I have ever interviewed to hire, their entire skill was in finding existing
code on google and being able to adapt it.
The truth is, even full-fledged
corporate Software Developers, the run-of-the-mill computer science graduate, rarely
produces any original code; it’s all copy-pasted and adapted. In most cases
that’s enough and they’re paid extremely well.
So you could either be
the one paying to have someone google for you, copy, paste, and adapt an “original”
mobile app or software…or you could build your own and have others PAY YOU to own it.
The choice is yours.
