A few days before the end of 2018 I signed up for an awesome new challenge sponsored by Ladies Be Architects, WITDevs and Amplify: #100DaysOfTrailhead. My mission: learn something new everyday, for 100 days, preferably on Trailhead, Salesforce’s learning platform. There’s a leaderboard, and the top 3 scorers get prizes. To say that I’m competitive is an understatement, so there I was on New Year’s Eve, waiting for the clock to strike midnight so that I could get on the leaderboard FAST. And I did. And then I did another one, and another one, and another one.
I know. Its New Year’s Eve… why are you sitting around earning Trailhead badges when you should be out at a party? I have a baby. Well, she’s about one and a half. No parties for us for a while. My husband fell asleep early, I had already watched the ball drop in New York on TV, so taking a little time for myself when I had the chance just seemed like the right thing to do. And what did I want to do? I wanted to learn stuff… and be at the top of the leaderboard.
Since then, its been a fight to stay at the top, for sure! Making time for learning every single day is really hard. Here’s what I’m doing to stay on track.
