Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
The theme of my life as of late has been slowly. Slowly writing this manuscript (which is technically due next Monday). Slowly finishing up tool building. Slowly training new help. And, most importantly, slowly venturing into new territory.
Today is the first day of me learning the basics of computer programming. A skill-set I've sorely lacked and yet one that is necessary not only for this research project but also for today's job-market. Today's seminar is a refresher in using R; Wednesday's is an introduction to MATLAB. Tying it all together is an introduction to computer science course. And somewhere in there over the next 6 months, I need to learn Python.
All of this is outside my comfort zone. So to quell the fears, we're proceeding slowly. Testing waters, acknowledging fear of failure, but still pressing forward.
