Books Turn Muggles into Wizards

- It's noticably true for me!

What have I Done Today?

Almost finished hacking together a forked website for open data which I'll mention in the future posts. It's a part of my HTML/CSS learning journey.

Read in the book "Trust".

Worked on more infrastructural stuff with my voluntary engagement.

"We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better." - J.K. Rowling

What Tools have I Used?

  • HTML & CSS
  • Scope Wheel
  • Scan Card
The result of long-term relationships is better and better quality, and lower and lower costs. - W. Edwards Deming

What Surprised Me?

How easy it is to make things work with HTML & CSS, learning by doing is once again showing how great it is.

That basically everything in society and systems are based on trust. To me it seems that trust comes with honesty and authenticity, which also is a trend within branding.

My extreme quickness with scanning, very important and easy to get.

What has Changed?

With my believed success of reshaping a website and lots of learning and confidence that came with that I am definitely thinking about what the power of programming can do for my third year.

That I now consider trust as an integral part of how I build a relationship in anything. Thinking of how I can create trust in my relationships requires some kinds of actions and the removal of others.

My attitude towards scanning. Choosing something to scan makes so much sense and then to iterate and get back to the Scope Wheel.

What are the Next Action Steps?

  • Finishing Trust.
  • Getting the website done as soon as possible would be great…
  • Reading more and more!
  • Taking some time for fulfilling my need of so-called “idleness”…
