Just.... coding, "being in the right place at the right time"

I have spent the last week working across two projects.  It’s been very interesting, but I haven’t done much coding.  This is not great (but is sometimes inevitable).  A couple of hours ago I decided to shut the door on the outside world, and do some Tornado, Python, and micro-services.

I have been working on a side project in Scala, but want to move it to Python (as this is the main language on the projects at work).

Because of the project spread (at work), I need to stay focussed.

So closing the door, I cranked up Intellij, Spotify, and thought what music will I re-discover.  Marillion was the choice.  Crikey they are excellent. The last ninety minutes have been amazing.  Right in the zone, in the right place at the right time :):):)  I accomplished what I wanted.  Ambiguity resolved.  Yaaay. **It's always difficult to juggle side-projects in your own time, but keep persevering, learning, chipping away, and investing in your skills. Don't let anyone accuse you of not getting it.  Keep on trucking :O)**
