Performance tip: Consider splitting your CSS too. Remember, CSS blocks rendering. Webpack can split your CSS too. And you can declare different CSS for different media and screen widths too:

Realization: Resumes, educational background, and listed skills have little correlation with me saying yes to a potential hire.

What I do: I chat about software development like baseball. We should both be "fans" of something. A natural conversation about the candidate's specialties, preferences, and opinions quickly exposes the edges of their knowledge.

Do you read books and blogs that are full of superb life advice...and then fail to act?

Me too.

A lot.

Don’t do that. It’s intellectual procrastination.

Instead of “hiding” by reading another post, perhaps it’s time to act on the good ideas we’ve already read.

As a consultant, it's concerning how many projects I see that have little or no documentation. A README.md is critical:
What's this for?
How does it work?
How do I get started?
Where does it run? OS requirements? Browser support?
What's the release process?

When starting a new project, consider beginning with the readme. It's easy to change. :)

1. Say no to most things.
2. Say yes to the few things that match our core values.
