- Collective resilience
You are more inclined to accept what happens in your life when you can relate to someone else's experience. There is a collective thing in acceptance. This idea echoes one of my highlights from last week issue about the influence of the content we use to consume everyday. You have control over what you read, listen and watch. How it sparks you up is totally up to you!
- Fear of being wrong
The fear of being wrong is the first reason why we end up having difficult conversations. Considering we could both be wrong is a good way to approach an argument. Put your beliefs and certainties aside for a sec. Pretend you know nothing and, eventually, you might know something. The first move out of ignorance is to be open trying to make sense of the things you think are wrong, illogical, impossible or weird. In his article « This is how to change someone’s mind », Eric Barker shares so many useful tips to have a better foresight posture.
- From Nothing to Something
It feels good to create. You take the time to observe the world around you, experiment with the things you collect here and there and decide to make your creation available to the world every now and then. You create this for yourself before everything else, to have a record of your motivation and achievements. You feel proud turning nothing into something but having just one positive feedback from a stranger can turn this something into so much more. Support the creators you follow, make their day!
- Progressive Enhancement
Progressive Enhancement and Minimum Viable Product, same struggle. I discovered so many interesting methods, logics and principles since I started coding. These help me see the world from another perspective. One of the most memorable moment was learning about the rule of « Divide and conquer », such a life changing principle when you need to get things done!
- It's in you
The solution to your problem lies in you alone. Don’t do things to fill an unidentified gap but do it as an opportunity to get to know yourself better. Rather than buying something for the sake of owning it, invest in something to help you grow or discover something new. Rather than travelling to a sunny place to forget about your problems, use this trip to change your scenery and find a new perspective. Discover your true self is hard and tedious but it’s the first step to start digging into the root cause of your feelings.

Resilience is normally a collective thing. It’s because you are part of a resilient community that you feel like you got the strengths of others to draw upon. You can’t be resilient on your own.

Help others see your side and by the same token, do your best to see where they’re coming from. Remember: you could both be wrong.

The turning point isn't when you publish 100 blog posts. It's not when you gain 1,000 followers. And it's not when you collect a million views. It's the first time you turn nothing into something.

The real beauty of progressive enhancement is that if you really take it seriously, a user won’t even notice if they don’t have the “optimal experience”.
