Projects are where it’s at

When you start new projects, you never know what type of skills they will require, and what type of skills you will learn. It’s really quite surprising. For the Mountains of Wisdom project, I wanted to get a website up quickly, and I had the idea of using a database and dynamic pages, which I hadn’t thought of previously. This has since necessitated a bit of ingenuity (for me at least) in the excel department.

I’ve taught myself excel and website creation before, only the basics, but now I feel pretty confident in being able to get a website up using a spreadsheet in a relatively short amount of time. Just yesterday I learned how to make sentences using data from other cells, which is probably a pretty basic thing but I just never had the reason to do it before. Once you know how to do these things, you realise how simple they are, and want to do them again and again.

I’m convinced projects are where it’s at. There’s so much to gain from wanting to solve interesting problems. Not only is the problem interesting, the solving of it is also interesting. So in the end, I guess it becomes a matter of finding interesting problems to solve that also create value; a collection of which gives you quite an experience.
