Freelancers are very susceptible to a trend that has been a thing since the eighties but has been gaining momentum for the last couple years. It’s called self-improvement.
You Still Have Potential
The name self-improvement itself is already one of the main problems of the trend. The general social stance in Western industrial nations prevents us from realizing this issue and abolishing it right away.
I’ve been an advocate for self-improvement for a long time, about twenty years. I guess I was made susceptible due to the skepticism towards my own opportunities, that I was raised to behave by the common education strategies of the postwar decades. Today, the reason for this skepticism of younger people is less a result of the education, but more a result of the environment.

Somehow, I got on the wrong track and started buying a bunch of guides. Most of them turned out to be junk filled with commonplace, while others actually helped me boost my performance. I did this until two years ago. I was always looking for ways to improve myself, raise my productivity, and I was ready to question myself consequently.

Check out my previous article on how to set up LUIS. Building a bot with the Bot Framework is extremely easy, yet very powerful. Let’s see how this can be done!
