5 Ways to Kill your FrontEnd developer career: #3.7 the funny cats


Hi! In one of the previous episodes I started
talking about sharpening the ax. But today let’s talk about five ways to destroy
your Front-end developer career. I’m Anatol and you are watching the Good Parts
of the Frontend development. If this is your first time here and you wanna
learn Frontend and JavaScript, start right now by subscribing and don’t forget to turn
on the subtitles. [Music playing] You need to believe in overnight success. You know these stories: Bill Gates built Windows
and sold millions of copies; Steve Jobs invented the iPhone and earned millions of dollars
on that; Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook and rose billions of investments. But, hey. They had done 30 unsuccessful tries before
and received several patents for invention. They have been working on the topic for 20
years. Every overnight success story is always a
result of everything one has done in one’s life through that moment. Nothing’s unexpected. So, believe you will be promoted suddenly,
just because. Your senior colleagues want to help: your
manager, your team leader, your HR partner, whoever. They already know what exactly you need to
do right now and in the future. That’s enough, discuss that during lunch and
do nothing. You will get a promotion because everyone
else knows what is better in your case, but not you. Don’t attend conferences, come up with new
ideas, take the initiative or follow Front-end trends. Just do what you told to do. When your career is going great, you have
put a great team, and have an excellent manager, and current tech stack, it’s time to settle. Just complete your tasks from a task tracker,
and that’s OK. But OK is never OK. While you sit on a high pick of success SASS
or jQuery might disappear, and you can find yourself in the world where everyone put CSS
in JS and feels comfortable. But not you. There’s no time in Front-end development to
settle down. You did not receive a pay rise because your
HR manager didn’t evaluate your achievements? You have not received a promotion because
your Project manager didn’t provide stunning feedback about you? You were not recommended for other projects
because your team leader didn’t see your impact on success? So if no one sees your results, that’s maybe
(just maybe) your fault. If you want a successful career, it’s only
your responsibility to make it happen. You set a goal: to be a senior developer. You’ve been working hard, met all requirements
and finally got a promotion. Yes! But a second later a manager says, let’s get
back to a project. And what now? Career is a ladder, but life is not. Life is never about the goals themselves. Life is about the journey. You will not have a fulfilled life without
a successful career. However, your job will not be successful without
a fulfilled life. A promotion is a momentary sensation, and
your life is not. So believe that the only thing is matter is
the career. Follow all these 5 tips and you’ll definitely
destroy your career. [Music playing] If you like this video give it “thumbs up”,
