Do that side project.

How many times have you told yourself

  • I'll start that open source project I've been thinking of
  • I'll write that utility which will make my job easier
  • I'll enroll for that course on Artificial Intelligence and write that amazing recommendation system

and then did nothing?

Well, guess what. Time passes. Yes, really.
