For all of us who own and run our own business often the years tick by without really considering what we do, how are we doing it and should we be doing things differently.
I’ve sort of had this bubbling to the forefront of my mind for awhile without actually sitting down thinking about it.
We work in an area that changes so rapidly. I had to do some work on a project I built around six years ago the other day and it was like a time warp so much has changed. Yet I remember many years ago when I started life as an engineer six years did not mean a huge amount of change.
So I decided to think about what we are doing and what we should be doing?
To that end I’ve decided to focus much more on plugin development.
Gone are the days where individual projects require individual solutions now we complete projects by putting together various off the shelf building blocks.
We will still complete individual projects either web sites or online learning as this is important continuous understanding of the area in which we work. What are the current trends and what are the problems that need solving? These questions can only best be answered by being involved in real projects and real clients.
However, I am also going to focus on developing some WordPress plugins that will solve some of the problems with the current state of play especially in the eLearning area.
Not completely a new direction. I’m not going to give up everything and join an ashram but a bit of a new adventure none the less.
