Carduino main board layed out – Part 2 of 3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Spent longer than I anticipated organizing how everything would fit. I typically take a picture before I start soldering things, because often, things will have to come off before I can solder everything on.

As you can see, I bought some surface mount parts to use, since through-hole packages weren’t available. It looks like just soldering wires onto them will work out 🙂

This is the idea that has driven me this far in my robotics: When making decisions, do not base your choice on what you want, base it on who you want to become. A short example would be choosing between making a circuit, and playing some Minecraft. You may want to play the game, but you want to be the person with plenty of projects that not only make you more experienced, but actually solve real world problems that you face.

Because of how our brains work, we will either establish or re-enforce the pattern of making things (in this case some electronics :P). If you do this enough, it will be a natural choice, ensuring that you are who you want to become (because you would be doing all of the things the person you want to become, do). Progress!
