To go from where you ARE to where you want to BE is often hindered by obstacles.
One of the biggest enemies will no doubt be knowledge gap.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
The quickest way to hack this is to crowdsource knowledge from other experts.
Write a project brief with a very clear outcome of you want to achieve – whether is it build an app, a new technology and post it to Upwork.com
As the bids stream in, engage the qualified bidders through chat messaging.
Ask them for their thought processes, tools, technology stack they will use to complete the project.
Speak to 3-5 such experts and within a day or two, you will learn the equivalent of 3 days of DIY research. And to be fair to the experts, you should engage the one that offers the best solution.
Have fun. And keep hacking.
