re: Out of everything you've seen or read, what had the biggest impact on your life as a developer? VIEW POST


My manager at my second programming job who's attitude was something along the lines of "just do it". I know it sounds silly, like a Nike commercial. I took it to mean, "I know you can do this, so just do it.". The thing is, I didn't use this wisdom right away and passed up many opportunities in the past because I always doubted my competencies.

Nowadays, when I doubt myself (happens often still, Imposter syndrome anyone?), I just think of what he said and I just do it. 👟

And here's an example of following that advice so that you know this isn't just a feel good puff piece comment 😜
