New year, new goals. How are you doing on that front?
There’s something I’ve realized recently, that being a developer helped with my resilience.
Small mistakes happen, and I just don’t care about them anymore.
I had to go to a doctor, they had fetched me from the reception, I entered and gone straight to their desk.
I had scheduled a call with someone... but forgot about time zones.
I had to send an email before a date... and forgot.
Most mistakes are small and easy to correct, and more than that... they just don’t matter that much.
As a developer, when I don’t see a mistake, an Error, popping up... then that’s when I get really concerned I’m doing something wrong.
Not that expect things to wrong all the time, but I certainly prepare for that.
But trying to sit in the wrong place?
Hey, that’s my seat!
Arriving late to the call?
Hey... you’re coming?
Forgetting to send the email?
So... I need that email...
And when the error does pop... it’s easy enough to correct.
