TALK: INSTRUCTOR ALFRED
Instructor Alfred graduated from Zuitt’s silver batch (Batch 25 Day Class) and now one of the instructors at Zuitt.
He started telling his story before he entered Zuitt. Back when he was still in his marketing job, he kept going back to the same problems that he had with the web development team in his company. He had a hard time working with them.
As a marketing person, he felt as if his ideas were being limited because of the Web Development team’s “Can’t attitude” from his former company. They are always saying that “They can’t” or tell him that they wouldn’t be able to work on the website within the timeframe that he had set. And because of that, it got him frustrated.
He made it his motivation to step into the world of programming and started learning to code himself. He said: “At first. I thought it was easy.” Close to giving up, he always reminds himself to take to heart this: “Consistent and Never-Ending Motivation”
Instructor Alfred also shared what he learned from his past work: The 3 things that prevent us from moving forward:
Talking about his journey in learning to code, he said that there were a lot of times that he felt like giving up but then he managed to thrive. He then said,
“The thing that prevents you from achieving your goals is the excuse you keep on telling yourself. Instead of thinking what is my excuse, ask yourself, what is my next step?”Instructor Alfred
As Instructor Lourence thanked Instructor Alfred for his wonderful talk, he drew a mountain. He shared a quick story about climbing mountains and the purpose of doing so. He then connected his story to what every graduate in that room went through for the past 6 months, and with that, he ended his pep talk with this:
“Continue to climb. Continue to do great things!”Instructor Lourence
