Getting better means you have to critic yourself.
You have to remove your love for what you made or did and really look at it. Then, like a bodybuilder you have to put the work in, tear it down and build it back up. That is how you will get better and remove unwanted weaknesses and excuses. There are things we are not good at simply because we haven’t done them before. We have not prepared for the test. I don’t mean book learning, I mean practical driving test type stuff. You have to get out of reading the manual and take you, or your idea for a spin. Either you will fail at executing it or your idea has a flat. Fix it. Then get back after it.
