It's a beginning of a new sprint, and you're hungry to get started on knocking your stories/tickets out. You've got a fresh new development story that you're eager to get started on. You've already got the solution all figured out and you know your implementation will be fool-proof.
You grab your beverage of choice, tune your headphones to your "Code Rush" playlist, and code away.
Then it hit's you: You've magically entered "The Zone" where your thoughts are clear and your code is swift(no pun intended). You suddenly become a 10x Developer, and have no doubt in your mind that your code will be bug free.
Even when you run into minor set backs in your code - a variable spelled incorrectly (who needs intellisense?) - you still press on.
Some would argue this feeling is caffeine induced; But I have experienced it without any stimulants plenty of times.
So the question is: how do you get yourself into this unique mode of productivity?
Is there anything you do to force yourself into this state?
When you're in it, what do you feel when it comes to your thinking?
