Life is all about constantly evolving. Be it a hobby or a new skill, learning something new is the best way to invest your time. For most remote software developers, the quote by Dr.Seuss highlights the learning process that is required to be successful in the chosen area of profession.
‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’ — Dr. Seuss
