Working in a new medium is always challenging for a doctor who has no knowledge on programming and latest digital technology.  I quickly wrote down these 26 points to boost my morale.

  1.  If you are working on a new project, take it as a game. Children are not afraid of trying new things. Be like a child who is playing with a new toy.
  2.  Don’t try to be perfect.
  3.  If you fail at the first attempt, try again. Don’t give up.
  4.  Don’t try to multitask. Focus only on one thing.
  5.  Remember, if you do something wrong  it will not impact or hurt anyone.  It is just a hobby.
  6.  Don’t worry about anyone judging your new project. Everyone is too busy with their own life, family and children. Go ahead and have fun.
  7.  Take it as a challenge and do it on your own. Don’t ask for help.
  8.  A good friend will always find a way to help you, even if you don’t thank him/her. Don’t  disturb or poke someone. If you find something irritating, it is likely even others will not like it.
  9.  Don’t waste time on technical details . Go out, relax and then start again
  10.  Eat your meal on time.  Never eat your dinner on your writing table.
  11.  If a friend drops in suddenly. Be polite. It is Sunday. Don’t think of the project and don’t look at the watch.
  12. Don’t try to check social media. It is a waste of time when you have started something new.
  13.  Please don’t panic if something went drastically wrong.
  14.  Organize and keep a backup of all the photographs.
  15.  Don’t blame anyone for destroying and hacking any of your website. It is your fault if you cannot keep your digital assets safely.
  16.  Make sure you are in a happy mood. Listen to music.
  17.  Pride, anger, hatred, jealousy, resentment are negative traits and will not help you to create something beautiful.
  18.  Make a plan for the working week to achieve more in short time. Keep aside 3 hours everyday for your blogs.
  19.  The holiday shopping  season is coming up fast.  Keep the next weekend free for shopping. Complete whatever you can before next weekend.
  20.  Go to sleep early.  Make a regular routine to sleep for at least 7 hrs. Try to get up by 6.30 in the morning.
  21. Find some real life cheer leaders who will who encourage you at every step and give you helpful feedback when you are doing something wrong.
  22.  Always surround yourself with high achievers and successful risk takers whom you can call up during an important project.
  23. Ignore negative feedback from people who mean nothing to you in your real life.
  24.  Write whatever you want as long as you are not preaching, attacking, or hurting anyone by your writing.  Remember “Pen is mightier than sword”.  Choose your words carefully.
  25.  Always think of a positive heading of every post, be brief and think of a possible solution to any problem.
  26.  Don’t bother about who is sharing  your post and ranking in search engine.  Be happy if only your family is reading and enjoying it.   Good luck
