10:33am7 Tips for Finishing Big Projects from Jason Pargin (youtube.com) This link was shared to me by my brother and I found this video extremely insightful. I love the distillation of how he approaches these and one of the big highlights that struck me is him asking, “What are you going to give up to make time for this?” You have been doing something with your time, whether it was watching TV or something more productive, what are you going to stop doing for the thing you want to do? #

Glowbug Development Notes:

  • I fixed it to properly display on mobile for the admin panel. So it is now easier to post from my phone. I think that is the only work I did on it today.
  • I have also identified a bug, having to do with Javascript, AJAX, and how it does pagination for my listing of pages. I know the cause, I just need to get in there and fix it.
