When it’s time to quit, that’s the time to carry on.

You’ve given it all it takes; now give it some more.



If you’re trying to achieve something spectacular or out of the ordinary, you are guaranteed to find opposition or difference of opinion from everyone around you. The whole world is built on expectations and definitions of what ‘normal’ is. Normal is going to school to be taught exactly the same thing that everyone else in the country is being taught, to then moving onto further education to eventually trying to get a job in a field that you have no experience in. If you’re one of the lucky ones and you land a job in a field you like you work your way up and at 50 you’re comfortably married, go on a holiday once a year, drive a nice(ish) car and have grown up kids. If you weren’t so lucky you join the second group of people who's education didn’t do them much good and you’ve been in the same office job all your life. You save every year to try and get a holiday with whatever you have left from the burden of a mortgage over your families head and your life pretty much consists of going to work, eating and sleeping.

Then there’s the group of people who aren’t normal. You can call them the entrepreneurs, the go-getters, the dreamers, the ‘crazy ones’. The fact that they don’t want to be struggling their whole life is what makes them crazy; but isn’t that a normal dream to have? The majority of society sees the Branson’s, Zuckerburg’s, Bill Gates’ & Steve Jobs’ as ‘lucky’. Why are we not brought up to believe that if we work hard enough we can be really successful? Instead we’re taught about these entrepreneurs or inventors who have changed the world as if they aren’t human. We’re taught about their stories as if we couldn’t do it. It is funny though as the one common factor in the super successful and wealthy is that they all come fromnothing. They didn’t have loads of money, their parents weren’t rich and they all built their empires from an idea. An idea that they believed could improve lives and change the world.

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” — Dale Carnegie

To be successful you have to believe in what you are doing. I dropped out of school at 17 so there is no other option other than for me to succeed. If I don’t make this work, I’m f**ked. I’m 21 and although I haven’t made a million like I thought I would have at the time I know I’m getting somewhere. I’m growing, learning who I am, I’ve made new powerful contacts. As the years have gone on more of the people closest to me have started to lose faith. They’ve gone from fully supporting me and encouraging me to leave education to doubting everything that I do and suggesting me applying for a 9-5. A 9-5 office job would be the easiest thing I could do right now to get out of this. From the experience I’ve gained in the last 3 years I know I would have no issue in getting a ‘normal’ job but that’scompletely why that is not the thing to do. It’s the hardest it’s ever been right now to explain to anyone why I’m doing what I’m doing. That’s how you know you’re getting somewhere because it doesn’t make sense. You can’t change the world without doing something different.


Nothing comes easy and if you want to be successful you have to give it everything it takes. There will always be times where you will question certain decisions you might have made. Stop it. You’ve made them and it’s too late to look back now. Never forget what made you so hungry and driven in the first place. Why should you accept failure and join the crowd? There is no better time than now to build something of your own. Start with a small idea and build on it. Stay focused and it will grow with you.

“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.”

使用Golang语言实现对指定存储桶的删除方法(下)
上一篇文章《使用Golang语言实现对指定存储桶的删除方法(上)》中介绍了删除存储桶前的校验逻辑,今天就来看一看,具体删除存储桶时的逻辑处理。通过上下两篇文章的介绍基本上就把删除存储桶的底层源码实现讲清楚了。正文我们直接进入正题,当删除存储桶时,大概需要三个层逻辑。具体情况,我们接下来单独介绍。

用 Golang 快速实现 Paxos 分布式共识算法
  前文《理解 Paxos》只包含伪代码,帮助了理解但又不够爽,既然现在都讲究 Talk is cheap. Show me the code.这次就把文章中的伪代码用 Go 语言实现出来,希望能帮助各位朋友更直观的感受 Paxos 论文中的细节。   但我们需要对算法做一些简化,有多简单呢?我们不持久化存储任何变量,并且用 chan直接代替 RPC 调用。

PHP 没你想的那么差
  PHP现在名声很糟糕,因为它曾经是“可怕”的。本文试着回答一些常见的关于 PHP 的断言,目的是向非技术人员解释,PHP 并不像许多人所说的那么糟糕。   不再是了。过去,许多开发者被书本教授非常糟糕的实践,因此 PHP 代码的质量非常差。PHP 曾经还允许你做一些非常奇怪的事情,使得它非常容易构建,但维护起来却是一场噩梦。   这些不再是常见的问题。随着高质量学习材料的引入,这些材料易学且易获取,一名新的开发人员可以以正确的方式学习 PHP。这样就可以避免初级开发者因为不知道构建事物的正确方法而编写一些维护起来非常痛苦的代码。   随着框架的引入,导致许多糟糕体验的大部分通用代码现
