Learn In Public
Whatever your thing is, make the thing you wish you had found when you were learning.
The subheading under this rule would be: Try your best to be right, but don't worry when you're wrong. Repeatedly.
People think you suck? Good. You agree. Ask them to explain, in detail, why you suck.
Did I mention that teaching is the best way to learn? Talk while you code.
People notice genuine learners. They'll want to help you. Don't tell them, but they just became your mentors. This is very important: Pick up what they put down.
